Dealing with health challenges over the last several weeks has given me new opportunities to trust the Father. There was a time when WHY would have been my question, especially when from my prespective there is so much that needs to be done for Arewa Aid and our work with the Blake family in northern Nigeria. But now I see these times as an opportunity to focus on Him, to “stand still” as it were and, see the Father. It is easy to be so busy doing His will, that we can miss seeing Him in the process. The following video has a similar lesson. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Maiduguri Nigerian is about to enter the rainy season. A period of plenty of water followed by up to nine months of drought. Thanks to the skills of drip irrigation and the new well just drilled at the farm crops can now be grown year round. The skills to do this are being taught to the poorest of this region. This wonderful opportunity to show the Love of Christ to the Islamic population has created a tremendous NEED FOR SEED!
If you would like to help meet this need here are a few ways you can help:
Set up a seed donation box at your congregation/Bible Class/Place of work/School and start collecting garden seeds of all types.
Children love a challenge. Let them be creative and allow them to share their ideas about seed collection, and then help them follow through.
Talk to your local store about a matching gift of seed. For example: for (x) number of seed packs purchased, the store owner would donate a pack of seed. Local stores love these promotions that bring people in and increase their store traffic.
Don’t forget to spread the word at your office or place of work. Who knows where the domino effect might lead.
If you will ship the seed to us, we will be responsible for shipping it to Nigeria.
So mail your seed to 118 Wessington Place, Hendersonville, TN 37075

Here is a list of seed that we need:

Please pray for the Lord of the harvest to be glorified as we plant these seeds of faith.
