"You don't know what you don't know"
Now stop for just a minute and think about that. I know that
I don’t know how to fly a plane because I see pilots that do. I don’t know how to change the oil in my car
but I know where to go to get someone to do it who DOES know. There are things
that are not anywhere in my experience…quantum physics for example. I have NO
I guarantee if you read to the end you will know something you didn't know before.
What if knowing something you don't now know could actually save your life? or the lives of your children? There is a tree that grows in the wild and in many yards in South Sudan. It's primary use is for shade and boundary lines. That tree is the Moringa and its uses are amazing and life-changing! Our training expanded their knowledge and their shade tree became a source of safe drinking water, healthy
diet, and inexpensive medicine (it helps the body heal from over 300 diseases). They didn’t know what they didn’t know. If you
didn’t know see http://www.strongharvest.org/the-moringa-tree/
for more information.
"My people perish for lack of knowledge.." Hosea 4:6a
tree improves life, but what if you don’t know about giving life? In South
Sudan babies born not breathing are often set aside and assumed to be dead.
Many women die in their thatched-roof “tukuls” during childbirth from very
preventable causes. They can't afford to go to a hospital, and if they could,
space is limited. They don’t know what they don’t know.
The women in
Yei, South Sudan asked for training on how to share the Gospel and love of
Christ just as the men do. We will partner with Teach to Transform in September
to teach women “Helping Babies Breath.” This midwife training will give the
women a practice way to show the love of God as they help babies enter the
world healthy. Healthy moms will receive the good news that God loves them so
much Jesus was born. Helping Babies Breath will start lives in both a
physical and spiritual way. If you want to know more about this training
check out http://teachtotransform.org/medical-training/.
We will also be training 8-10 farming cooperative groups about
Farming God’s Way. This farming method will save money and increase crop yield exponentially. If you don't know about that, check out http://www.farming-gods-way.org/overview.htm.
