Mango Trees

We worked on replanting mango trees in the  tree nursery.  These trees are all in little black sacks below.  We picked through the good ones and emptied the empty (no trees grew in them) sacks of dirt to replant the trees.  We cleaned off a new area to prepare to replant the mango trees.   The boys were a big help!  Next we took 5 gallon buckets (thank you Ralph & Sharel) and poked holes in the bottom of the buckets. Then we sifted dirt, sand and manure to make a mixture to replant the mango trees.  Then we began filling the buckets with dirt and transplanted the trees.  We had a nice lunch of rice and beans.  The mango trees will now grow bigger and stronger in the buckets. In a few weeks we will graft them.  This will make them produce fruit on their trees several years earlier.  This will help the farmers and will produce more food.  This is what it looked like when we were finished!   1 John 5:4 (The Message)

 4-5Every God-begotten person conquers the world’s ways. The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. The person who wins out over the world’s ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God.

    I love how what you do in Haiti not only helps heal what is “broken” but also helps prevent problems and help the Haitian people have better lives… just awesome.

    That brings back good memories =) I was also happy to see, either on your blog or Lori’s, I don’t remember which, that the vetiver (sp) looks like it’s doing well. Yay!
