SE Asia Bible Training/Farming

Project #71905
Asia Church Planting Church Support Training

Only 1.5 percent of the population in Vietnam are believers. Many face extreme persecution. Utilizing Oral Bible Training and farming techniques, believers are being trained and the gospel is being shared from farmer to farmer and beyond.

Our Avant team is training believers in Oral Bible Training (OBT), which helps them to interpret and understand the Bible in a culturally appropriate way. Establishing Vietnam believers in the word of God and building an OBT center will help duplicate leaders and spread the gospel. As Vietnamese believers continue to grow in the Word of God, they are also being trained to serve others through natural farming.

Focusing particularly on the rural farmers, (the underserved in Vietnam), our team is teaching farmers how to increase their crop yields through Natural Farming Techniques (NFT). Organic farming is considered unaffordable because it is slow to yield fruit and costly to produce. Organic farming also allows for the use of some pesticides, while natural farming is chemical-free and mimics God’s intended natural cycles. The growth rate and yield in natural farms has proven to be almost as good as conventional chemical laden farming. Learning and using NFT will help people provide affordable, organic food for their community, their consumers, and their families, also allowing them to demonstrate God’s mandate of “loving your neighbor as yourself.”

A demonstration farm is being developed where these farming techniques are taught. As the team hosts NFT sessions, and as believers who have been trained NFT and OBT return to their own communities, they are able to share about the God who provides the rain, and the God who created the soil. This opens doors for gospel conversations.

We hope that this Biblically based training coupled with teaching people to work with the natural resources God has provided, will allow the gospel to flourish. Your support makes these trainings possible, providing Christian brothers and sisters with the knowledge and tools they need in order to plant churches and spread the gospel in their own communities.
