New Year Celebrations
It's time to celebrate!
You made it all possible! You are our heroes. There's so much to share and to be thankful for, don't miss the announcement at the bottom!
Because of YOU, Victoria is eating well and no longer suffers from malnourishment and health issues!
Christian Gwilia, Field Officer, tells Yese Niodemus's story. When Yese and his family joined FFHC in 2009 and received their goat, life was very difficult. Yese's very beautiful daughter Victoria suffered from malnutrition and related health problems for a long time. Yese took good care of their dairy goat and her milk greatly impacted Victoria’s health improvement! Months passed and God continued to show his face of love to Victoria through the goat from FFHC, until finally Victoria recovered. In addition to milk, the goat also provides manure for fertilizing their fields, increasing crop production. The family has sold 4 bucks and funds were used to renovate the goat shed, purchase iron sheets for their house, pay for school fees and other basic needs. Yese’s family dreams that one day, if God wishes, they can build a brick house, continue to ensure a good education for their children and be financially independent. They expect to achieve this in 2018. Yese’s wife, Agripina said, 'It’s like a miracle and that is why she is always taking care of the goat by any means so that other people who are not the members of the project has to be attracted and finally join the project.’ Through their goat project and other small business activities, they can now send their children to a private school. Agripina also stated there are still several families who are suffering from poverty in their village and she believes the goat keeping project is the main tool to rescue them from poverty.
Did I mention that when we prayed for Yese's family in 2009 and anointed them with crosses on their foreheads, they were Muslim? After that meeting, they gave their hearts and lives to Jesus! Today Yese is a leader in his church. Go God!! None of this would be possible without your support and prayers.
WE GOT THE FARM!!!!!! Check out my very excited video https://www.facebook.com/foodforhischildren/videos/10155980540617629/ if you missed the announcement. After 3 very long years of waiting, we finally have the title to the property FFHC purchased for the goat farm and development center in Tanzania. Let the building begin!
Give Goat, Pass it On! Your gifts provided goats to 20 more families this month. YOU ROCK! Special thanks to Bryr Brannigan and Samson Ishma for their hard work in finding these beauties!
New staff The 4 new Field Officers have started meeting the families on their caseload and are excited to dig in. Christian, Levina, Nick and Noel provide one on one encouragement, support and assistance to all of our families. And they will be sending you many more stories so you can see the power and impact of your gifts. It doesn't look like this team is going to have any fun at all, does it?
God Sized Vision We're gearing up for 160 new families in 2018! You can make this possible with a monthly or one time gift. But wait till March. Um, what?!
