Malawi Mission - Agro Project - Feed a Pastor
||Agriculture is the largest sector
of the Malawian economy contributing more than a third of the
GDP and generating more than 90 percent of total export earnings.
Around half of the citizens in paid employment work in the agricultural
sector and 85 percent of the population are supported by the
Tobacco is the dominant foreign exchange earner
for the country. The other main domestic exports are sugar, tea,
pulses, cotton and coffee.
The main subsistence crop is maize which is grown by most smallholder
farmers. Other subsistence crops include sorghum, pulses, millet,
fruit, cotton, rice, groundnut and root crops.
||The vision is to purchase land
in Malawi to establish an agricultural project. This will be
associated with the
Mission Holiday Village and help to feed the missionaries
visiting the complex, the orphans and other vulnerable children
at the orphan care centre. 15 acres have been sourced along
the shores of Lake Malawi, seen here with the lake in the distance.
United Caribbean Trust has purchased an acre of
land for a local pastor this will be a trial to see if this land
can be utilised to help feed the pastor, his family and some of
the members of his church. It is our desire to see all of the Sponsored
Pastors housed in a church associated with the Orphan Care
Centre and given a small parcel of land to assist with their feeding
