Story of farms that will show you God at work

Forgotten Voices is proud to partner with an organization called Foundations for Farming, formerly called Farming God's Way. God has been working miracles for a really long time through this program. On my latest trip to Zimbabwe and Zambia, I got to meet up with our good friend, Pierre, who leads Foundations for Farming in southcentral Zimbabwe. You can read more about our partnership with this group on our website.

In this video, we asked Pierre to tell us what's been happening in our southern Zimbabwe partnership (we also have some in other parts of Zimbabwe and Zambia), as well as share the incredible story of what led us to meet for the very first time a few years ago. Both are great lessons in God's provision and perfect timing. Two quick notes - first, we shot this at a friend's house after my dad, Steve, and I actually went and saw some of the farms as we came into the property. Second, when Pierre talks about 500 families, we estimate that at least 10 people are living in each family, so 500 10x10 meter farms would feed about 5,000 people. The bigger ones can serve up to 25, plus have LOTS extra to sell in the market. Incredible!

In total, last year, Forgotten Voices invested a little less than $5,000 in this project. Hear what happened! Enjoy! -Ryan
