Bible Study in Ateso

It was a little over one year ago that I was sitting in Nairobi waiting on College Hills’ Team to arrive while watching my future husband pass the late hours by translating a simple Bible curriculum into his tribe’s language. After many months of hard work, those deep in the village learning organic farming from our students are now also… (more…)

Farming Class

There is way more to the word “Organic” than I need to know. Yesterday, we learned from Peter about using “liquid gold” fertilizer (I’ll let your imagination fill in the blanks). He and James have been so busy teaching groups in the village about organic farming that we are just now starting class at home. I assume tomorrow’s lesson will… (more…)

My mind has… (more…)

Unfortunately, his plan backfired a bit because the cheap thing is from China and the alarm setting doesn’t work unless you set it off… (more…)

One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

If any of you drive by our compound and see my husband hugging an enormous bag of rotten cabbage, know that we have not lost our minds. We are composting! Why? Because our students want to turn our compound into a demonstration ground where local believers suffering from famine in nearby villages can come and learn how to grow large… (more…)
