I just returned from a two day training in Ft. Myers, Florida at the ECHO World Farm. ECHO is a Christian nonprofit organization that is dedicated to eradicating hunger around the world through agricultural training and development. I had a wonderful time there with the ECHO gang as we explored the farm together. They had pulled so many resources from their library on the Moringa Tree for me to read and research. The were so encouraging and I was joyfully overloaded with all kinds of information that will take me weeks to process.
I also was able to see a sample Moringa farm. ECHO had just harvested the leaves, so the trees were a bit bare. However, I learned volumes about preparing the soil, composting, seed planting, cultivating and harvesting. They even showed me how to make a solar dehydrator to dry the Moringa leaves. I am so thankful to ECHO for their help, encouragement and resources. If you get a chance, visit their website at www.echo.org. I feel that God has provided me now with the knowledge to go and make this project all that it can be.
Please be in prayer as I plan to officially announce the project's opening December the 3rd at Crosspointe Church in Valdosta, Georgia. I will be spending the next month and a half promoting and praying for God's provision in regards to the project. I will be returning to Sierra Leone January 4th, 2012. I thank you all for your support, prayers and interest in this project. Read through this blog again and ask God to put His hand on the Tree of Life.
May He be glorified and may the undernourished and hungry of the world be blessed through God's miraculous Moringa Tree! I love you all!
