God used my farming Heritage
God opened my mind to see the need of equipping the church with a farming project that would work the soil, raise crops, and earn income to sustain the church and pastor.
There is land available but primitive ways do not allow enough soil to be worked and planed to sustain themselves and earn funds.
The Farming Projects provide 1940's tractors that were once used on American farms, easy to work on, and that allows 30-40 acre tract to be farmed.

LITTLE RED THE FARMALL for TATINDO VILLAGE
'Debbie,' he replied, "the original name of the village Toboli found on your map was named after an idol. However, because so many have come to know Christ the people no longer wanted their village named after an idol so they have renamed it Tatindo!'
KEEPING THEM RUNNING was part of our sending them as TRACTORS BREAK DOWN, and it is one of the most difficult parts of the projects.

CAUTION - we are careful in providing supplies especially abroad but even in being careful supplies can reach the hands of those who will use them to financially benefit themselves. When traveling to check on the project in Togo we saw that the farm is provided income to workers but it is also providing a fine mansion for the man that received her. The funds earned from the farm were supposed to aid the work of the church in the northern region while providing income to the poor in the south!
