Missionary Miguel Rubén Guante returned to Malasi last week as we had planned during our March mission trip to Haiti. He delivered 252 coffee plants, which were purchased with a financial gift from the children at First United Methodist Church in Cañon City, CO, USA. The coffee plants were only the first part of an agricultural plan for the church at Malasi. In addition to coffee, Miguel is having 400 banana plants prepared for delivery this week. The rainy season is upon the Chaine de la Selle range and farmers are busy planting.

Climbing For Christ has assisted with farming since the summer of 2008, when a Seedling Bank project began with coffee plants, banana plants, and other fruits and vegetables. Hundreds of banana plants are now bearing fruit in the villages where we work.
