Keep up the good work

Dear brother Dkzi,

This will be brief, but I want to encurage you to keep moving forward, doing what you can each day. I am familiar with The Heifer Project and you have an exceptional opportunity to change lives and villages. If you can take with you someone who is educated and have him or her teach a small group of girls/women, you will teach that village. I know you already know this, I'm just trying to encourage you.

I'm supporting and worked last year with, a school in Liberia. The parents knew the value of educating their children and everyone at the school felt hopeful for jobs and a better life.

Feel free to correspond. I currently send email to two United Methodists in Liberia on a regular basis.
peace and love,

helping women become farmers

Brother Dkzi,

We have a small farm here in Oregon, Western Oregon. I have gained a lot of knowledge about farming and know that there is dignity in growing food. I take pride knowing that the pigs I grow and vegetables will nourish people, so they can become all that God has created them to be. Please tell your women clients that I pray for all women in Kenya and hope they will have patience and spread love and encouragement to their villages. These women are leaders of change in Kenya and should feel proud to be able to do this good work.
peace and love,
Wiliam the farmer who cares

community work

Brother Zar,

Thanks for your message. I'm sorry, but I don't know your first name, is it a combination of Zar Ali Khan Musazai? Anyway, I've been working out in our fields every day, mowing weeds, to help our trees survive. We planted thousands of trees on part of our property (42 acres) as a forestry project. My pigs have about another 2-3 weeks to go before slaughter. They are a white variety, so will be good for bacon. I think you are about in your rainy season? We all need rain for our crops and even here in rainy Oregon, we are anxious for rain. Take care of yourself. Spread the word that one man in the US---well, make that two with President Obama, care about the people in Kenya. A visiting team from the Oregon United Methodist Church just returned from your country.
peace and hope,
brother william
