Orissan youth planting rice as part of an educational program offered by a local ministry

Preparing for a future harvest

These young people are planting rice as part of an educational program offered by a ministry in India´s Odisha region. While Bible teaching and discipleship are the primary focus, students also receive vocational training at the school. Agricultural projects are included in the curriculum so gospel workers will have the practical skills needed to work and live among rural villagers. When Cyclone Phailin ravaged entire farming communities last fall, the ministry distributed food, clothing, and shelter materials to homeless families.
