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 CLUE!
I guarantee if you read to the end you will know something you didn't know before.
The moringa 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.
