tools

We want to send a special thank you to  Grace United Methodist Church in Naperville, IL.  This church has helped out in the past with flood relief and organized and raised fund to ship a container of Feed My Starving Children rice to Haiti for flood victims.  They took on another small project to buy tools for local farmers.  These farmers will be able to use the tool in their fields to help them plant and harvest crops.  They can also work on other people land for a days pay with the tools.  It is a way for them to be able to do something for themselves and their families.  It empowers them to be able to work and not have to depend on hand outs.  It is a great small project for any one to take on.    What a blessing.

    What a great thing to do. Those farmers will be blessed! Thank you God!

  2. Yeah! I am so happy that they were blessed with those tools. I am a new reader, but lover of Africa and it’s people. I was blessed enough to go to South Africa to visit iThemba Lethu in December.

    Thank you for all the work you’re doing.

    You inspire millions all over the world.
