Sowing Seeds

Almost nine years ago, Denis was hired to be the groundskeeper at Casa de Esperanza.  He has the greenest thumb of anyone I know.  About a year ago, we asked him if would like to move to the farm. Matt took Denis and Marta to the farm and they quickly said yes.  They knew they wanted to be out there working the land.

Every time I went to the farm, I could tell the vast improvements being made on the farm.  Casa de Esperanza has saved quite a bit of money on beans and corn this year.  And platanos.  So many platanos that sometimes the kids say oh, no, not more platanos.

Unbeknownst to any of us, Denis was sowing other seeds as well.  He was sowing seeds for the Kingdom.  He began studying the Bible with his neighbors and having church in his house on Sunday morning.  There have been 20 baptisms.  And now, this new church is meeting in his house every week.

When we decided to move Denis to the farm, God had a bigger, better plan than any of us.  Of course.  He always does.
