As life continues to be very challenging in Venezuela, we are thankful for our partners who faithfully continue to work hard as they seek to meet needs under unpredictable circumstances.
This year, we have seen bountiful crops in the 10 acres of land available for us to use. We lost some crops, including 3,000 tomato plants, due to weather related difficulties yet have seen amazing results with black beans, onions, corn, peas, leeks and various other herbs that provide food to a community where scarcity has become the norm.
We recently planted 5 kg. of Peas and harvested 150 kg within 14 weeks .
This is Juan Carlos who is an Agronomist and overseas the planting work.
We also planted 1 kg. of corn seed yielding a lovely harvest of 300 kg in just 12 weeks!
We are currently ready to harvest leeks and onions. Renyer, is a student learning how to work the land. We are anticipating a good harvest with these as well.
These are some of the practical ways your support enables Juan Carlos and Renyer enabling the ministry to feed their community.
On this Thanksgiving season, we are also thankful for you and your involvement in Venezuela. Thank you so much for your help!
