In 1974, to promote home gardening, the Asian Rural Life Development Foundation in Davao Del Sur, Philippines developed a simple but effective vegetable growing technology called FAITH or Food Always In The Home. A FAITH garden can produce a continuous and sufficient supply of fresh vegetables for families everyday depending on the region where they live. This guide is an attempt to develop a home garden that can provide adequate food with minimum cost, labor and land utilization. It includes: reasons to grow vegetables, steps to successfully begin and grow a garden and practices that will help in the garden.

We have new CHE workshops for short-term teams that are available for download:
Joy Phillips reports that World Gospel Mission has joined a global movement called Community Health Evangelism (CHE). Mango Ministries in South Sudan uses this tool that leads to transformed lives and communities. In 2013, we are training and mentoring nearly 75 leaders in four different areas of South Sudan.
We've seen exciting glimpses of transformed lives in both the spiritual and physical realms. In one CHE lesson, WGM missionary John Muehleisen explained the plan of salvation by drawing the Four Spiritual Laws illustration in the dirt, in lieu of a chalkboard.

I can't forget this lesson all my life—never!" CONTINUE READING

Sounds like CHE!
In health terms, Bangladesh is a “positive deviant”, performing far better, given its widespread poverty, than anyone could have expected.
