SD couple spearhead effort to donate crops to countries in need
BRIDGEWATER, S.D. — In 2007, Kenton Hofer took a mission trip to Guatemala. While there, he helped build a house for an 82-year-old widow, who every afternoon would sit on a rock and shell corn, one ear at a time, so she could have supper.
Upon witnessing the woman’s poor living conditions and her hands, crippled from arthritis and poor health, the rural Bridgewater farmer knew he needed to do more than build a house.
