A lesson from Winess…

Winess Nalungwe was an intern at Foundations Zambia in 2016-17 and since then has been working for us part time as one of our Junior Trainers. Watch the video below to see a clip of her sharing her thoughts on ‘Giving’ one of our key principles.

Jesus said

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

Luke 6:38

Many of us wait to receive before we think about giving. But Jesus said we must first give. This takes unselfishness and models the heart of God.

Foundations Zambia is teaching farmers how why and how to give good things to the soil. We are all stewards of creation and if we care for the soil, the soil will care for us. Through out much of the world humans are destroying the land and depleting the natural fertility of the soil. This is either because of a lack of knowledge or selfishness. For many people in Zambia they feel they are trapped in poverty because their land is not producing good crops, but this principle of Giving is helping them see that there is Hope of God redeeming the soils if they acknowledge Him and follow His ways in farming and stewardship.

Please pray for farmers and interns in Zambia as the rainy season starts. Many will have been putting compost in their fields, but it is very hot at the moment and need Joy and Strength to finish the task On Time. Pray also for the Foundations Zambia team that they would have the joy to keep giving in their ministry to serve others.
