The Field of Hope
In 2018 the 50-acre ‘Field of Hope’ has was planned, and planting of crops began in 2019. Two oxen were purchased, and are now being used to plow. A third donkey has joined the two that we already have— where the third one came from, no one knows!
The field has been already been very productive and the upcoming first harvest will be shared with a local village. We have experienced setbacks with an overabundance of rain causing some flooding late in the rainy season (as seen in the photo here), and trying to protect the crops from local wild animals. But with perseverance, the field will continue to expand and provide food security for more members of the local communities.
