Adhanom and Helen Hidug, missionaries with Mango Ministries in South Sudan, recently updated supporters on their blog, Beyond Rivers.

One of the projects Adhanom is championing is an agricultural methodology called Farming God’s Way:

Farming God’s Way (FGW) is a farming approach that is motivated by biblical truths. It uses a technology similar to conservation/organic farming. The technical aspects of FGW are:

  • Use mulch (called God’s Blanket in FGW, which can be from leaves, grass, stock of crops, or even weeds)
  • No ploughing
  • Practicing rotations
  • Use organic inputs (compost, manure, anthill soil)

The biblical component of FGW that challenges farmers to follow God’s word in all aspects of their life, the above mentioned and other technical components as well as a simple but effective management system make FGW to be a proven tool to help the poor to make a sustainable profit in order to come out of poverty.

You can find the full post on their blog.
