"Today we manage to distribute 30 bags of maize and seed to over 200 families. Each got a portion of 20 kgs of maize and 4 kgs of Aminika seed (maize seed). We had a little change that the church elders suggested that instead of buying beans let's use that funds to buy seed so when the plantation season comes they have quality seed to use. Apart from that we have agriculture officer who came to train them how to plant and use manure for better performance. It was a lovely day. And they said thank you for Christmas gift. It has meant a lot to us." Update from Emmanuel Lazier.
Food insecurity in Tanzania has reached the "acute" level due to an ongoing drought. The How Far Foundation recently sent funds to purchase food and seed for the most vulnerable families.
Rains have finally come to the area but it is too late for this year's planting season.
Pastor Emmanuel serves as the overseer of the howFar Ministries Churches of Tanzania and the howFar Ministries Bible College.

Praises to God for allowing us to continue to serve our folks in Haiti for another year!
• We sponsored two VBS programs this summer where over 100 children heard the gospel message and were fed a good meal each day.
• Our medical outreach continues with many people receiving medicines and care for diseases, gunshot wounds, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, eye glasses, etc.
• Several feeding programs were held in various neighborhoods where malnutrition is a chronic problem.
• Several children have been sponsored to attend school.
• We invested in a community garden that feeds people fresh vegetables and fruits they cannot afford to buy. Right now, we’re renting the land with hopes to purchase it one day soon.
• Our school in Cite Soleil is still up and running with profits from Haiti Works providing money for the teachers who are working without a regular paycheck. We continue to pray for this school. Due to the gang violence in the area its difficult to have a regular schedule for classes.
• Several children and adults are suffering from PTSD because they’ve been in the middle of the violence and many have been driven from their homes with nothing except the clothes they are wearing.
• We have a new, small orphanage that we are sponsoring.
• Our current orphanage of 35 children was forced to leave their home in September and remain in another location because of gangs. Please pray for their safety and for the children to return home soon.
