Growth has been happening on the Pillar of Fire mission site for some time now. Not just to the clinic, school and church, but also in the form of plants. Agriculture provides a unique pathway forward into the future as a solution for financial independence as well as being a good steward of the land God has generously allowed us to look after. The team has planted over 10,000 coconut tree over the past three years. A key team member in this work is Emmanuel. He loves farming and the clinic is privileged to sponsor his current efforts to earn a degree in agriculture and livestock management. Recently, he has been using his weekends to assist an NGO that is working to conserve mangrove in the area by instituting a strategic tree planting program. He is learning sustainable farming and finds it interesting that the same concept for agriculture applies also to forestry… farming wood 🙂
Agriculture is all about growth and planning for the future. We are happy that Emmanuel is helping to make that possible here in Po.
