Going on a mission trip with Agri-Stewards was like fulfilling two different aspects of my life, which up until then had been kept separate. I was born on a farm and had recently become a Christian, so when I heard that there was a group of Midwestern farmers heading to East Africa to help with agriculture, I could hardly believe it! This trip combined my two passions – a heart to see the Gospel reach all people worldwide and a love to steward the land God gave us!
While on the trip, I learned more about the curriculum, Farming God’s Way, which Agri-Stewards used to teach African farmers. I was intrigued by what the program taught and awed by the testimonies, so I began to investigate it a bit further. Little did I know that God was preparing me to eventually teach the material. When I moved to Tanzania as a full-time missionary, I found that Farming God’s Way was part of the course, and they just so happened to need someone to teach it.
