“In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.” Ecclesiastes 11:6.
We praise God for His perfect timing in granting us the opportunity to begin the purchase of land to advance our ministry work in Boyacá (an area with no Adventist presence) in Colombia. We have begun plowing and planting our orchard, looking forward to feeding our lifestyle guests plenty of nutritious organic fruits, grains, and veggies soon.
Six thousand Eugenia trees have been planted to form a natural maze, which will be used to develop activities for individuals with emotional and mental disorders. Through this educational activity we also aim to promote character development among children and youth, and to present God’s love for mankind. We project that by May 2019, this maze will be open for schools and churches of other denominations.
As Loma Linda Campestre* moves ahead into new territory, we are also training three Adventist families in the manufacturing of our food products. This self-supporting work will give these families an opportunity to continue witnessing for Christ in the marketplace in Villa de Leyva.
Here are their testimonials:
Alicia: “Loma Linda Campestre has helped me and my family to grow in our Adventist beliefs and to step out in faith by manufacturing tofu, soy milk, and yogurt, besides our veggie meats.”
Merly: “Loma Linda Campestre has been God’s answer after a beautiful encounter with Him. It came into our lives in God’s perfect timing to help strengthen our faith. Through the bread industry we can see God’s providence and confirm that there is nothing more wonderful than to associate with God and put our talents into His service. Let us be His hands, His eyes, and His feet here on earth. Thank God for Loma Linda Campestre and its pioneers.”
Milena: “Loma Linda Campestre has supported us greatly. Despite my being the only provider for our home, our income grew and has given me the opportunity to learn new ways to offer people healthy nutritional products such as alfalfa, lentil, and mung bean sprouts, besides our Calados manufacturing.”
*Loma Linda Campestre is an alumni project supported through Lord, Send Me.
