Photo Blog: A Gift for Orphans in Haiti

Grace Church has helped to fund the next “phase” of the garden project. The adjacent property has been purchased and now needs to be prepared. This includes clearing the land, “planting” a cactus fence around the perimeter (to keep the hungry cows out), irrigation, and planting.

Thank you for your help on this project! Pray that it will provide the desired harvest and skills training for the children. And PRAY FOR RAIN!
