Turning Vegies into Meat

Now that Gavriella is old enough to travel around, the two of us got to go on a field trip!

In two and a half months time, without any fertilizers or pesticides, Paul had so many 10 Kg watermelons he din’t know what to… (more…)

The Village Project

Pictured above is my in-laws’ home in Serere County, Uganda. People say that there is no such thing as the edge of the earth, but my husband believes if people visited his village, they would change their minds. Anyways, while we are waiting for our new discipleship classes to organize themselves, we have used some of the money from our wedding shower… (more…)
