Things are Growing in Quessua!

Kutela Katembo is the agriculturalist at Quessua Mission and he visited BUMC in June 2015.  He moved to Quessua from the Democratic Republic of Congo in December to begin his work of revitalizing Quessua’s farm.  Before the civil war Quessua fed 1000 people including students, orphans, staff and people from the surrounding villages.  All of that agricultural work was destroyed in the war, and landmines were planted in many fields.  Kutela has made great progress in a very short time, planting many types of vegetables with the help of students and orphans, planting a moringa orchard, and starting a rabbit farm.
 
He recently wrote, “My family and I are doing fine by the grace of the Lord. It is a pleasure for me to always send some news regarding our mission at Quessua Mission. Please find attached our July Newsletter. We Thank you for your support to our agriculture ministry.
Blessings,
Kutela.
