A Farming God’s Way Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Thank you very much to those of you who support Farming God’s Way Ministry at Heaven’s Family. You have enabled our FGW team to accomplish some amazing things in Africa as well as in inner-city America. I can’t adequately express how much your support and encouragement means to the poor subsistence farmers in Africa and to at-risk youth in our inner cities.

We hope to send monthly newsletters like this one to keep you informed of the progress we are achieving and the challenges we face. If you have any questions or comments, please email me at [email protected] or Jerry Jefferson at [email protected]. Again, thank you to those who support this ministry, and please pray for the FGW team and farmers in Africa, and for our new ministry in our inner-cities. God bless you.

God bless you,

Dick Samuels
Director, Farming God’s Way Ministry
