A Young Agro Visionary

Photo0279 (2) (640x480)
About a year ago, I met a young man, who was eager to develop his skills in agriculture.  As I spoke with Stephen, it was obvious that he was very excited about farming and wanting to make a difference in his community and his country.

imageFor the last ten months he attended an agricultural school in Wakiso district, Uganda, that focuses primarily on teaching Farming God’s Way principles. Here he learned to apply proven technology and management skills, along with biblical keys to equip the poor in the agricultural domain and come into an abundant life in Christ. During his time of training, he told me he has never seen a method of farming that has such amazing results.

After graduating at the end of May, Stephen has joined me full time in implementing FGW in Uganda.  He has a real heart and vision to help many families in his home district of Rakai, one of the most impoverished in Uganda.  He also has a vision for other parts of Uganda, assisting many families to come out from under the yoke of poverty.

I pray that God will use this young man in helping not just to transform unproductive land into productive land, but lives in spiritual poverty to abundant life in Christ.
