The Groundnut (Peanut) Farm Harvest

Groundnuts from Tarikpaa village

The harvest of groundnuts from this year's crop
This past summer the members of Shalom Baptist Church planted groundnuts on land that had previously been planted with maize.  While the harvest was not as plentiful as hoped for, due to drought conditions, we are still very thankful for the bounty.  The groundnuts will be stored and then distributed to needy widows and orphans during the lean season. 

We want to give a special thanks to the Koinonia Sunday School Class of First Baptist Church of Rockwall, Texas, for their generous donations that helped plant and harvest the groundnuts.
