Sustainable Farming Sustains Families
“I find myself deeply rooted in the hopes and dreams of an organization that is focused on creating reliable and sustainable farming practices for hungry children, families and communities around the world,” says Board Member Leah Stolte-Doerfler, Pastor, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Silverton, OR “Our overseas visit was an incredible ‘ah-ha’ moment. First-hand we saw that creating reliable, sustainable farming practices also creates reliable, sustainable families ~ children fed and loved and nurtured by in-tact families. I want to be in the middle of that work!”
A long-time volunteer and Growing Project leader, Leah joined our board in 2017 as a representative for our partner Lutheran World Relief and her Growing Project. She and other volunteers with us last spring to visit the programs in India they support. Leah said they felt blessed by the experience and privileged to witness the work of the families and communities. there.
