The Bible teaches some interesting concepts that very few have ever experienced. Nevertheless, these experiences are available to those to whom God gives understanding.
Farmers and horticulturalists joining us will teach both the secrets and the means of experiencing this supernatural intervention.
The growth and harvesting will only be part of this ministry. Once harvested, these fruits and vegetables will either be eaten fresh by the community and the people the community serves or it will be canned or processed ready for distribution or export.
Matthew 13:11 11
He replied, “You are permitted to understand the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven, but others are not. 12 To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them.
Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted!
Once the growing and harvesting techniques have been mastered, those overseeing this ministry will teach the methods, techniques, composition of soil, the added nutrients and the pest control measures to local communities and others wanting to learn what God has revealed.
Staff will themselves also undertake an in-depth research on what others have experienced elsewhere in the world, what discoveries have been made on how, what they have learnt can be incorporated into our own ‘best-practice’ experience.
Other pursuits will include experimentation with the most expensive fruits in the world and how these fruits can be grown, harvested and used to provide income.
The Community will have its own water resource and will operate technologies such as wind, and solar.
The ministry will conduct its own research on what foods are healthy and examine research conducted by ‘other experts’ to assess whether their conclusions have any merit.
There are vastly differing opinions on the benefit or harmful effects of meat and diary products. Before the ministry engages in these enterprises we will prayerfully seek Divine Wisdom to assess whether we should include livestock such as cattle, chickens and sheep under our agricultural portfolio?
NOTE: We hold no opinion, for or against any meat or diary products but feel we should seek clarification from God before including farming in our entrepreneurial endeavours. We have no ‘position’ on this and would be happy for staff to formulate their own opinions.
The only reason why this topic is even included is to establish whether there are health and life-style benefits in the consumption or non-consumption of meat and diary products.
These technologies will be combined with the use of an extensive array of plastic and polytunnels allowing for various degrees of heat and moisture. The ministry will experiment with growing different varieties of fruit and vegetables, as well as mastering new techniques of producing far greater yields than would normally be expected.
This also applies to all food-stuff. It is our prayer that God will give us Divine wisdom in this matter so that:
We will be able to teach the benefits of consuming certain types of food for their medicinal and healing properties.
That the growth, distribution and export of ‘healthy foods’ will be part of our ministry.
We do not foresee a scenario where we will prescribe to staff and visitors alike what food they should or should not eat. This will be up to the individual to decide.
Care and caution will be exercised to ensure that any ‘advice given’ will have been thoroughly researched and can be backed up with proven results.
A by-product of our research will be to produce products with proven medicinal benefits for sale.
Further study will be undertaken in the examination of producing hybrid fruit and vegetable and assessing their healing, and nutritional properties.
The ministry will include research into the medicinal properties of different plants and how these can be utilised in producing research-driven new treatments.
There will be a prohibition of dabbling with anything that has any non-scriptural or questionable origins or practices.
