I can remember as a kid when my mom would get out the seed catalog and pour over it tryin to decide what to order for the garden . Then when I was older , it was me pouring over the catalog . It was with great joy that I would lay out all the seeds on the table when they arrived .. stacking the packages by "time to plant" , then by "variety" , then I would put them around the table as if laying out the design of the garden that year ... I Know I am not the only one , I am in a green house gardener group and everyone is excited as their seeds are arriving ..
By contrast , I know of families in Kyrgyzstan where they could not even imagine being able to spend money on seeds , and if they had a potato they certainly would not have the luxury of planting it when their families are so hungry . They simply do not have an opportunity to experience the JOY that comes when the seeds arrive.. That is until NOW... For just $20 we can give them a big bag of seeds to plant their gardens and hope and dream of a positive future . We also include about a weeks worth of groceries so that they can feed their families and not be tempted to eat the seeds .Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

There is something special that happens when you help someone plant seeds .. Just by nature it is new life and a fresh start . As you care for and tend to the crops they begin to bare fruit. When the kids come to the farm, they learn to be farmers.
When the crops start to grow, they get so excited. But the greatest excitement of all comes when they are able to bring food back to the orphanage that they came from , or to their friends and families if they have them .
It is the same thing with families that we help with seeds . People are shy, some times embarrassed to receive help at times . The vast majority really do want to be receiving help and not comfortable with it. In fact we probably show you less then 10% of those we help out of respect for their wishes .
But let me tell you, when we can give people an opportunity to not only succeed for themselves, but be in a position to help others, THAT is when we are truly making a difference in their lives.
A single package of seeds tossed INTO THE MUD has the ability to produce a thousand lbs of produce OUT OF THE MUD and in doing so lift a person out of the mud as they provide for themselves and are able to be the ones blessing those around them .. It is truly a beautiful thing..
A single donation of just $20 can be instrumental in lifting a family out of the MUD and not just helping them but all those around them as they are able to share the blessing.
