Yesterday on Weekdays, Mike and Kelley from Fox Glove Project talked to Peter Hack from Tiamoyo Empower Project
Nearly 40 million people in rural Tanzania, rely on dry land farming. However, famers are struggling to provide for their families. They lack equipment and expertise to maximise the potential of their land. Corn is the staple crop but they yield only 0.4 tonnes per acre.
Peter was a farmer who found his faith in God through drought and poverty. “I studied agriculture (to become a farmer) but God put his hands on me and asked me to look after His sheep instead of mine.” He left behind his farm to help those in Africa. “90% of our farming (in Africa) is applying the gospel Monday to Friday” Having experienced drought and poverty first hand, allows him to help these farmers apply the gospel to their work and daily life.
