It's all about value!

In farming, you need three things: efficiency, perseverance and a positive attitude. Those are the same qualities you need to succeed in home building.

Don’t Call the Head Office

Jeff RuttI met a new friend today named Lexon. Now that Lexon belongs to the savings group he is able to not only grow spiritually but improve his family’s financial situation using his skills in growing cotton seen here in the background.8 months prior to the flood hitting Southern Malawi Lexon was able to save approximately two dollars a week saving up a total of $40 for an emergency fund. Because of the disastrous flood that destroyed his home and cotton fields last December, he needed to use the $40 to survive, along with many other things… to feed his young children porridge two times a day. Not only that, but he has also been able to support his church. Consequently when there is a need at the church they don’t have to pick up the phone and call the head office at the denominational headquarters. When there is a need at the church he belongs to. families like Lexon’s are now able to use the God-given gifts, talents, and abilities that God is given them to not only support their families but support the church and eliminate the need for subsidy from “The head office.”
