Umdoni VLOG 15 – Tour of Umdoni

Take a short tour of the Umdoni Leadership Camus with Melinda Babb. At Umdoni, we train students to become God honoring holistic leaders who multiply their training by pouring into and training others. We drive leadership training with a focus on self-sustainability, skillset development and innovative thinking.

Umdoni VLOG 14 – Permaculture vs Agriculture for a Homestead

We think permaculture can bring immediate and long-lasting benefits for families. As we begin focusing on how to help strengthen families, we believe a shift in how families think about growing food can be a great start. In today’s video, William compares from his experience the differences between agriculture and permaculture for a small to medium sized Swazi homestead.

Umdoni VLOG 13 – Old into New

We love that we can train our students at Umdoni the value of reducing, reusing, and recycling. Today we’re focusing on the reusing part of the program as we’ll see some of our team’s innovations. William also introduces us to his multi-stage water recycling center where waste water is turned into plant usable water to get the most benefit of our water.

Thank you all for your continued prayers

Thank you all for your continued prayers with the current events. The Government of Eswatini issued a statement on June 29 that the country unrest has been “perpetuated by an unruly crowd where people have been attacked, property destroyed, businesses looted and public roads blocked.” This crowd is demanding democracy and seems to be targeting the king’s government buildings and property. However, many businesses have been destroyed.

Please pray for peace

Please continue to pray for Eswatini- riots and unrest are still affecting our staff, missionaries, and communities. Schools and CarePoints are closed for safety reasons and grocery stores are not stocked. There is currently martial law and 6pm curfew. Please pray for peace in the country and our hearts. May we trust the Lord even in this.
