Soggy Crops

Hail the size of cherries pummeled the earth during the storm.

The 30-minute-storm left the earth muddy and loose, but a rainbow of God's promise shone brightly.

As you might guess from the name, Riverside Farm Institute in Zambia relies greatly on its farm industry to support the ministry. On Sunday, however, their crops were hit hard by rain and hail. They bagged as many soybeans as they could before the rain hit, but even most of those are soaked because wind blew the rain into the shelter where they were stored.

The leader is moving forward in faith, but it’s heartbreaking for him and each person there to see the damage wrought by the violent storm. Please pray for those at Riverside, that God will continue to provide for their needs and keep their faith strong. Thank you.
