The Women of Bobi: Pigs and Progress

  It has been two months since the women of Bobi received their piglets, and it is amazing to see the sheer joy in their eyes and smiles on their faces as they envision what the future has to offer. In developing their project, these women have taken a large step from total dependency toward self-reliance. The women now meet regularly, and have even begun to work on their constitution as a group. This will allow them to register with the county. It will also allow them to begin their own savings and loan program. The women have also enjoyed the interpersonal impact of the pig project...

Most measure it by money and how much they have accumulated, or achieved, or “arrived at their goals.” But God measures it by maturity – for only a mature tree, produces fruit- and He is very much after fruit (fruit of His character AND Kingdom fruitfulness in our lives- but they are only a natural byproduct as we mature in...

Restoring a Generation

A nation’s destiny lies within lives of its children, so children’s outreach is an important part of our Rural Education and Empowerment Program (REEP). By reaching the children, we are able to equip the next generation of leaders. These children are the ones who will transform their nation! Children’s outreaches, or Kids Clubs, are often set up like Vacation Bible Schools in the West, with anywhere from 50 to 500 children participating. The children enjoy Bible lessons, stories, memory verses, games, sports, and challenges in character development and soul winning. These are...

Empowering Emotional Freedom

Free people, free people.  In the aftermath of years of civil war, there is no life that has been untouched by trauma, horror, and pain. It is critical that these wounded hearts find healing in arms of their Savior. Through the counseling, they meet the “Great Forgiver” and find the strength to forgive the great sins committed against them and experience true peace and reconciliation at the Feet of Jesus. Our Trauma Rehabilitation outreach (part of our Rural Education and Empowerment Program) utilizes the EMPOWER curriculum designed to help people who have experienced highly...
