About 4 months ago, while in Guyana, I had plans to go back to the U.S. to take care of some appointments and other work related issues.

Tsushima Volunteer Mission Report – August 2020

Normally in farming rain can be a good thing, however, as with many things in life too much of a good thing can have a negative result.

Uncle David’s 1st Quarter Frontlines Report

Greetings from Bolivia, South America. About 3 weeks ago, as I was on my way north for a speaking appointment in the U.S., I stopped in Brazil and Guyana to spend time with the team there and then planed on going on to Puerto Rico, Miami and Tennessee.

Tsushima Volunteer Mission Report – January 2020

Since last year, we have been preparing for a new agricultural project which will start next year. We are going to teach local children and their parents how to grow vegetables and fruit, and also how to fix agricultural machines by working together.

Since last year we had been praying to God about land to start the project but we could not find enough land for the project. So we just kept praying without giving up. God is so good and faithful to our prayer. Last month by His grace, we were able to rent a very beautiful orchard for free. The orchard already has many peach trees and pear trees, and equipment to maintain it.

Uncle David’s 4th Quarter Frontlines Report

“The country is going to close down here in Bolivia,” said my son-in-law Richard over the phone. “Since there were irregularities in the voter reporting system, the citizens are going to blockade all roads nationwide until another election is held.”

“You’d better get enough food for the workers to last a while,” I replied “as well as gasoline and diesel in case the electricity shuts down.”
