The Secret Sauce
A peek into the special ingredient that makes FGW work
So often we tell you about farmers being able to feed their families and make a profit utilizing Farming God’s Way methods. But we also want to show you the tremendous impact, both spiritually and practically, of having farmers work together in GLGs (God’s Love Groups).
To do that, I’ve included a testimony from Oni, one of our FGW trainers in Zimbabwe…
This past week [my GLG members] were looking at Psalm 139: especially verses 1-6, 23-24. After the study one group member led by the Holy Spirit felt she needed to share things (secrets) she thought were a barrier between her and God. She never told anyone, even parents or relatives. After her sharing the whole group followed suit but most felt [more comfortable to] write down on a piece of paper without name and mix the papers, read out and prayed together.
That was so humbling to me and one girl was finding it difficult to forgive someone who raped her…that was her first time sharing this. Because of this GLG group people feel free to share anything for the first time in their lives. Only God can free and heal them and we already seeing the results but it is a process. Some they are victims but some they did bad things to others. Many many thanks for your continued support.
As Oni has alluded to, the “secret sauce” for Farming God’s Way’s success are God’s Love Groups. Transcending mere technical farming methods, the GLGs provide the glue that holds farmers together and helps ensure their success. And it’s the place where vital, transforming relationships with God are born and nurtured through discipleship. You are helping disciple the nations through Heaven’s Family’s Farming God’s Way Ministry!
This is just a brief glimpse of the eternal impact your investment is making. Thank you for obeying Jesus’ command to “store up your treasures in heaven.”
We have some very exciting things we want to do to help transform the lives of poor farmers this year, and I will be sharing those things with you in the coming months. Please continue to pray for our trainers and their disciples. The need in Africa is great, but our God is greater!
Happy New Year to you and your family.
Grace and peace,
Director, Farming God’s Way Ministry
