Sowing corn and preparing to plant beans on the hillsides in the mountain village of Malasi.
On Thursday, missionary Miguel Rubén Guante said: “From last week Pastor Vilcuis (of the church at Malasi) is calling me for fertilizer and seeds because it is raining now.”
Because of funding shortages we are scrambling to see what can be arranged. Miguel, who visited Malasi today, said US$1,500 would be needed for fertilizer and bean seeds.
We were able to wire US$1,055 early in the week to pay our eight teachers' salaries for February. Miguel paid some of the teachers on Wednesday. “The teachers are very happy,” he said. He delivered payments and encouragement to the teachers in Malasi on Friday.
