I sent some pictures of the land in the north, the fence is not yet complete as they clear the land for the mustard seed they will get the trees, branches and they will complete for the fence.The pictures are last three weeks situation the work is going on both for the fence and for the mustard seed field. They may not cover all 20 acres for the mustard seed but the fence will cover all the land. The pictures of two gentlemen are the leaders of both the Church and village also committee members for the land.
The work on the land started with prayer. They are doing both fencing and cleaning the land together so that the time. Next year they can plant potatoes, ground nuts, corn and other crops.
I will try to send the completed fence as they finished the work, the communication is somehow hard in the raining season but as the winter comes communication will be better and I will send the news as much as available.
Thank you again for your love and care.
God bless you.
Editor’s Note: Mustard plants are a “green manure” to improve the quality of the soil.http://www.seedaholic.com/green-manure-mustard.html
Mustard seeds themselves can be used to make a cooking oil. This video shows the process. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7atehKB10g
Jesus also referred to mustard seeds in Matthew 13:31-32
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
