GPM Orphans Farm Expanded

exp_farm_allcropsGPM recently planted new crops at the Glory Power Orphans Farm in Magona, South Africa. Butternut squash (see feature picture), a local peanut (next crop pictured below), spinach, tomatoes and beets were planted, with an expected harvest within approximately six weeks from this writing.

These crops (including spinach and tomato crops pictured below, respectively) will be used to feed many orphans in the area, as well as selling the surplus produce to buy more staples such as meat for them. The extra produce will be sold to the community, as well as to a local supermarket.

The farm has about five acres, and only about two are being used now. Plans are to continue to expand the planting of crops to feed even more orphans in the future. It will also help the pastors of Glory Power Center (GPC), Patrick and Bonghi, be financially independent, as well as raise funds for projects for the ministry in South Africa.

Glory Power recently had a security hut built on the grounds of the orphans farm (see picture), which is about 600 yards from the GPC in Magona. Thieves steal the copper wire used for electricity all over South Africa. The wire used for electricity for the water pump for the farm was stolen earlier last year. With the local electric company being slow with repairs, it took about eight months to finally replace the wire. They recommended that a security hut be built on the grounds, which GPM has done, to have full-time security to prevent future burglaries.

While waiting for the wire repairs, the farm still produced crops while a generator pumped water for the irrigation system. Now, with electricity, more crops can be efficiently produced.

GPM is excited about feeding many more orphans with the farm, having the pastors be financially independent, serving the community by providing easily accessible produce and also raising funds for GPM’s work in South Africa. Thank you, Lord!
