Farming God's Way & Fibion

Friends - A friend just returned from a trip to Zimbabwe. He took this picture of one of Forgotten Voices' pastors...Fibion. You can read more about Fibion by clicking on his Meet the Voices profile.

This picture is of Fibion standing next to his crops that he grew using the Farming God's Way method. FGW is a partner of Forgotten Voices in Zimbabwe and one of the leaders, Pierre, was also featured in a Meet the Voices profile. Fibion's use of the method is due in part to Forgotten Voices' partnerships that bring our church leadership into direct relationship with tools like the FGW method of farming.

By constantly working to connect people to other effective programs, dollars are stretched and lasting relationships are formed. Fibion learned of FGW at a leadership retreat I hosted in Zimbabwe, where leaders from across our partnerships came together to share ideas and learn from each other. The group plans to get together on a regular basis, even though I'm not there. Partnerships work!

Join me in praising God for partnerships AND for the incredible amount of rain that has helped generate this record height of crops for this area. God is amazing!
