Pray for a Plentiful Harvest!
On July 23 and 24, we distributed 1000 kg of soybean, groundnut, and sesame seed to farmers in Bubandi and Busaru Sub-counties. We are praying for a plentiful harvest, and that God would use this project to glorify Himself as we all rely on Him for rain and sun to grow up healthy plants. We hope to use the resulting harvest for another seed distribution, and we also hope to use the soybeans, groundnuts, and sesame seeds to produce a nutrient-dense paste for malnourished children in Bundibugyo. Pray for the literal and Spiritual harvests both to be rich and plentiful!
"But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown." Mt 13:23
World Harvest Mission's current nutrition programs are focused on malnourished and at-risk children such as those with chronic illness, motherless or whose mothers have HIV. We support surrogate breastfeeding, dairy goat breeding, and the therapeutic feeding of inpatients and outpatients. Locally grown nourishment in the form of eggs, milk and soy/peanut powder is used more and more.
The BundiNutrition Fund of World Harvest Mission funds the Matiti Goat Milk Projects, Therapeutic Feeding Programs, BBB (Peanut Butter Project) and BundiNutrition Farm (Dairy Goats, Chickens and Demonstration Garden).
