I have the privilege of working with some fantastic people here in mmmBELLYmay Land. Two of the most fantastic are Matt and Sarah Murdock.

Yesterday in Sunday School, I was teaching on the story of Solomon
becoming king. I related how, early in his reign, God appeared to him
in a dream and asked Solomon what he wanted God to give to him. I asked
the children how they would answer that question – what would they want
from God if they could ask whatever they wanted? The first 2 children
said — food. Wow. I asked what they would ask for if they were a king
or queen. One of those same children said rice (considered a very
special food here). Wow again. Clearly, we are dealing with needs on a
very basic level. That is one of the reasons we feel our training
center here is so important – if we can teach people how to be better
farmers, producing more on less land, and how to be better stewards of
God’s creation, perhaps the children can dream beyond the basic
necessities of life.
