The Luapula Chicken Rearing Project is well under way (see Project 089) to raise funds to support the training program. National economic difficulties have resulted in the project finances taking a hit. The original fundraising will no longer complete the house for the resident worker. The steering committee writes,
1. We want to complete constructing the house for the poultry housekeeper who will be on site to look after the chickens and maintain the poultry house.
2. The poultry house can be best used if the worker is stationed there for security reasons.

Beans will be planted on 2 acres of rented land near Mulombo in Zambezia Province using some hired labour. The land is fertile and does not need fertiliser. There is a good market for beans in the area. Two acres of beans once harvested and sold will raise about $1920 giving a profit of $1306. Once they take off the costs for the next year’s crop, they will possibly have a profit of $726 which can be used to assist the ministry in the coming year.  Donate online USD715

Two exciting things are happening here. Demand for the ministry is expanding and an opportunity has come to develop a good local source of the finance. A highly qualified and experienced man is available to supervise a chicken farm to meet high local demand. Capital is required to start it off.

THANK YOU for your gift

The Malawi office does not have a computer. Imagine how difficult that makes communication (email, Skype, internal web site), accounting, and preparation of training materials. USD1345.  Donate online

VISIT COMPLETED
Fascinating Philippines with its Spanish-American influences is a fertile field for furthering the gospel. Our Regional Director for Asia has responsibility to nurture, encourage and facilitate that work. A visit is needed for those purposes now. Opportunity will be taken also to conduct training and improve communications. Cost: USD2830.    Donate online

Thank you for partnering. The visit is about to take place.

Churches in Kenya are urging SOWERS to return to the country. A survey visit is needed to properly assess the situation before making a final commitment. Cost USD1035.

To partner financially, please use the How to Donate block on the left. Thanks.

This next phase is already underway. Thank you to those who made it possible.

In 2010 an initial visit was made to Uganda at the request of churches there. Initial training was given in a few churches. The SOWERS Program is practical - training must be put into practice before further training is given. That has been done and it is time to take the next step and carry out further development of the Program in Uganda. Cost USD4690

To partner financially, please donate online. Thanks.

Reliable communications are essential for efficient and effective coordination. This project is for internet access connection fees for SOWERS Malawi Lilongwe and Blantyre offices. USD130 per month / USD1560 per year. Donate online. Thanks.

COMPLETE. Thank you.

Samuel and Thandiwe have a need for basic furniture after being forced to move. Samuel is the National Coordinator for Zimbabwe and doing a great job. Sadly their income makes it impossible to buy any of the needed items. Please don't send furniture unless you live nearby, but otherwise ... Donate online. Thanks.

Thanks for your support. Growth in the SOWERS ministry in Zimbabwe has reached the point where a full-time staff member is needed, rather than the part-time position of late. We want to continue the momentum that exists in training churches to use this tool that is so effective in reaching people for God. Would you join us in prayer for the USD5520 per annum that is needed?     Donate online

Wheels are in motion. Bless you for your help.

Transport is a huge challenge for our National Coordinator. He needs to vist and develop widely scattered teams of Sowers. He needs to take a sketchboard and easel to training seminars. Try to imagine carrying them on a bicycle for long distances over rutted dirt roads. A motorbike will greatly increase his productivity. USD2300.

The operation was successful. Thank you for caring.

Mrs M needs an operation to correct a distressing medical condition. She is the wife of Ps M, the man heading SOWERS' work in Mozambique. Surgery in Malawi requires a one-time payment of USD460. To partner financially, please donate online. Thanks.

First visit completed successfully and paid for. Praise God -  excellent results.

SOWERS is about to launch into Uganda at the invitation of the United Christian Network. The first visit takes place in May. Level 1 and Level 2 training is planned to enable UCN to further evaluate the benefits to them of SOWERS' training. Our people will be able to investigate local resources to strengthen our ability to serve the Ugandan church in future.

To partner financially, please donate online. Thanks.

Thank you for helping. The vehicle is fixed.

Rodwell's roles as our Zimbabwean chairman are many and varied. He is self-supporting though farming. He has the care of Sowers. He has a significant ministry outside SOWERS, too, and is instrumental in meeting the needs of many. One key tool in much of this is his vehicle. This has broken down and stopped much of his work including family support. USD630 is needed to get it back on the road.

Mozambique mapTHANKS so much. Fully funded.

Demand in Mozambique is high for SOWERS' training. It has reached the point where full time staffing is needed to adequately respond to the call. Pastor Joao M has several years experience working with SOWERS part time.  When the Lord provides the funds he is ready to answer the call to full time work. To partner financially, please donate online. Thanks.

Fully funded. Thank you for your partnership.

The SOWERS' Program has always been intended for use in the open marketplace where the crowds readily listen. In some places it is too dangerous to evangelise like that, even though people are keen to hear the gospel. A trial of using the Program off the street, say in courtyards, has been authorised and is currently under way. It has been fully funded from within India. Praise God.

Funding is needed to systematically develop the Northern Region. Transport is the major cost, about 50% of the USD320 per month. Thanks so much for considering this project.  Donate online

All paid. Thank you for your generosity.

Active Level 3 Sowers (refer front page for Levels) need a means of transport to go to churches in their provinces for training new church teams and encouraging existing ones.Thirty bikes are needed at USD150 each - total USD4500.

Fully funded, Praise God and thank you.

Great progress was made in the first two training visits. Ps N is leading the work under the guidance of the Regional DIrector. Further consolidation is needed in 2009.

Cancelled

The Ghanaians have had Liberia on their hearts and in their prayers for years. Now invitations have come from Liberia to train churches there. USD3500. Please contact us to help. Thanks.

Project complete, thank you.

The wires don't stay up on the poles! Telephone cables are so valuable for their scrap value that thieves have taken them down and Zimbabwe's phone company doesn't have the foreign currency to buy replacements - not that they would stay in place long either. The solution - a wireless facility. Communication to and from SOWERS Zimbabwe can most economically be obtained in this way. USD310

Could you meet part of this man's need?

The quantity of work in Zambia necessitates an office assistance to properly care for Sowers and administer the work. The Board wants a committed Christian with knowledge of the SOWERS Program and office procedures. USD350 per month. Thanks so muchDonate online

Deferred. This project aims to provide funds for feeding the families of Level 3 and Level 4 Sowers while they are away training churches in other areas. Without this support the training can't go ahead as the Sowers need to work to sustain their families. USD1000. If you can help, donate online. Thanks for your partnership.

Thank you. Repairs completed.

The Sowers' house is suffering badly from overdue maintenance and accelerating decay. The project aims to repair it and restore it to a weatherproof state. Cost: USD2800

Visits 1 & 2 have been funded. Thank you.

Nepali Christians request SOWERS training and SOWERS Philippines has responded by offering Sowers to conduct training. Their finances can't stretch so far, though, so this project is out for international partnership.  Airfares are about USD1500 per person and three are needed on the first visit so senior Filipino Sowers can be given experience in transferring the Program internationally. Only two people will need to go on subsequent visits.

Project established. Thanks for your help.

Zambian Sowers propose a bee-keeping project to help with their support.The initial cost of setting up the project, including purchasing and transporting the hives, equipment for extracting the honey, and training for two people is USD900.

The farm management team is already in place and will handle the beekeeping alongside the other activities on the farm. Time required will be 2-3 days twice a year when the honey is extracted and sold.

Thank you - project completed

A motorbike is proposed as the most effective method of overcoming the lack of public transport to enable Pastor M to reach more areas, to train more teams and to encourage and assist existing Teams and Trainers.

There are many positive side-effects as Pastor M will be able much more easily to visit teams both in Niassa and Zambezia Provinces. The distances between places are up to 100kms and the roads are not good in places, so the use of a motor bike is the much more effective way of travel. Pastor M currently has to use a push bike and this is means he has to ride for many hours to visit and encourage teams and is often exhausted at the end of the day. In his mid to late 40s, this would be a great asset to him and the ministry. With a large carrier on the back of the motor bike, he will be able to carry the equipment he needs with him. It is not heavy, just bulky.
