Sarampet Farm: Holy GroundRich Stigall
Update from Joe in India
The Sarampet farm has nearly 9 acres, and about 2/3 has been cultivated, outfitted with drip irrigation, and planted. These are the tomatoes (pictured above). Drip irrigation is cranking. Beans, tomatoes, egg plant, etc. growing. The rest of the land is set aside for grass for the 12 cows and four rice paddies. Each rice paddy will yield twice per year, and each yield will provide enough rice to feed 10 children for 3 months. The farm also has goats, which are starting to reproduce. Layers are coming. It’s downright transformational.
A local Hindu village leader has been captivated by it, and keeps coming to the farm. He heard about The Father’s House, and pledged on the honor of his name to bring 50kg of rice to the kids. Today I was able to share the Gospel with him, and he gave his life to the Lord. Incredible stuff.
