We were happy to be able to give out the trees at two of the nurseries. It was exciting to see the people excited about planting the trees. We partnered with a local farmers group, O.P.A.P.P. (Organisation des Planteurs pour l'avancement de Pays-Pourri).

The people of Pays Pourri say "Thank you" for your support. God Bless.
We praise God for men like Mr. Eralus and Mr. Solius. Both are members of our church in Fond Parisien. God is using them to help the people in Pays Pourri, both physically and spiritually.
Please pray earnestly for the Leadership Seminar that we are planning for December for the church leaders in Pays Pourri. If you would like to make a donation to help cover the expenses of the seminar, mark your donation "Leadership Seminar".
