I could write a book about how I feel when I hear the word harvest. I love what God teaches us when we wait for our harvest, whether that is food, rewards, birth, or project.
The Kirabo Seeds team took the children to the land where we’ve been growing food since April and finally they were able to dig up the first sweet potatoes and harvest the cabbage. I am sure Auntie Julie prepared a feast.
I am sure there will be enough sweet potato to make a visit to the jjajjas where the children come from and share the harvest. And there will be enough to sell at market so they can turn and buy their fifty kilos of rice. Now that’s what I’m talking about! Teach them commerce.
James 3:18 Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. My hope and prayer as we work with these children is that they will learn to be peacemakers and in their hearts there will be a harvest of righteousness. The vision for our home and children at Kirabo Seeds: raise a harvest of righteousness.
Phiona reports that the excitement in the team and children was overwhelming. There is such a good feeling to dig up food with your hands. It is the way God designed it. Makes me want to put a garden in the backyard…missing my veggie patch from my previous house…but I have a different sort of harvest to raise these days…support for these children! We are still looking for ten sponsors to help us provide nourishment, health care, shelter and education for our family in Uganda. It costs 300 dollars to sponsor a child for a year.
