USA – The harvest fields where corn and kids meet, August 28, 2020

Let’s take a trip down memory lane. God calls a couple from Sedro Woolley, WA to go to Africa, 10,000 miles away. God calls a young mother and her two daughters in Washington to reach out and help orphaned and other vulnerable children in Africa. God calls a young man in northwest Uganda to build a school to help children in his community. The couple from Sedro Woolley go and visit the children in the pastor’s school that are meeting under a tree. The kids in Washington find out about the kids under the tree and share that with others. God calls a local farmer and his family in Skagit Valley to grow corn to help the kids in northwest Washington help the kids in Africa that God has called the pastor in Africa to help. God called people to help the pastor build the school in Africa and people in the USA to help sell and others to purchase the corn. Corn was planted in the spring of 2019, harvested and sold in the fall and the school was completed in December 2019.

Now the corn has been planted and is being harvested and sold in 2020. Pr. Charles, the Harvest Vision Ministries coordinator in Kayunga in central Africa is now “that” pastor called. They are now completing a new church fellowship building to accommodate the 350 believers in this strong Muslim community and they have purchased an adjacent property to build a school, starting with kindergarten and then going to primary 7. There is no school close and even some of the Muslims who have yet to be saved have agreed to let their children attend to get an education. It is true, that without the support of praying and faithful Christian youth and adults, these kids would find it difficult to fulfill their mission. Kids from different cultures, ethnicity, language and 10,000 miles apart using the need for education to spread the good news of Jesus Christ.

Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations; Open your eyes and look to the fields they are ripe for harvest; Pray to the Lord of the harvest to bring the laborers.”

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth! You have set Your glory above the heavens. From the lips of children and infants You have ordained praise because of Your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” (Psalms 8:1-2)
