Harvest Celebration

This Sunday we are having a Harvest Celebration at our church, Pigeon River Mennonite Church. We are having speakers come from the Foods Resource Bank to share with us their ministry going on throughout the world. In Huron County for the past couple of years Jonathan has been blessed to be involved in the Hunger Relief Project. Local farmers and members of the community donate time, land, equipment, and supplies so that locally grown crops are harvested with the proceeds being donated. The money is then distributed by the Foods Resource Bank to projects in developing nations to help our neighbors develop sustainable agriculture in order to better feed themselves. Only a small portion of the money is used for relief food. Below are some pictures of Eastern Zambia, where we visited a FRB project this winter.
