Isn’t It Interesting How God Moves in His Timing?
Article submitted by Glen Dubois, President of MVI I love God stories. I’d like to tell you one story that started five years ago when we’d gone to Matagalpa, Nicaragua, to purchase the property for a school. The price was to be $60,000. At the closing, the lawyer asked for $30,000 more. We had to [...]

Team from Canada Creates a Farm in Puerto Maldonado, Peru
Article submitted by Jim & Sue Brannan, Field Coordinators in Peru
We had a team from Canada come help advance the work at the girls’ refuge. They were a huge help! So much of the time the team’s focus is on construction, as that is the thing which is the most expensive; and the team did advance that, a lot. But this time the home’s farming activities really got pushed forward. With the team’s help and some good seed, we planted a vegetable garden on the second day the team got there.
Everything came up before the team left—now we’re eating radishes! This all went so well because now we could water sufficiently. We’ve not had a good rain in a month, it’s been HOT. However, with the team’s help we now have over 390 feet of water hose! It makes a big difference. Thanks team!
Also, at this time the Peruvian government gave us 100’s of fruit trees and a very specific plan on how to plant them with a promise of more help from the state if we did well on this. So we had cleared an area of about 390 square feet to plant these, using a wheelbarrow and a posthole digger that was also given to us by the same program. However, there is no way to carry that much water by bucket. So again the team put in a lot of waterlines with water faucets so that we could reach these areas of need. We have not lost any trees yet!
The goat pen was built, which makes it possible to get some female goats for that male we already have and to start producing some milk and meat for the girls’ refuge. So a lot got done to help push the home and farm along, THANKS team!
