Learning to be a Farmer

Because it is rainy season, most villagers are out working in their fields. To be able to relate to them, we decide to give it a try. The task for this particular day was to plant cottonseeds. We would poke a hole in the soil, drop some seeds in it, and cover the seed up. After we worked, we shared with the villagers the parable of the seeds.

In his parable, Jesus talks about a farmer who went out to plant seeds. He threw his seeds onto 4 different types of soil. However, only one type of soil was able to allow the seed to yield fruit. As we continue to tell stories and live life with the villagers, please pray for the word of God to fall on good soil.
