Heifer Update for November 2019

November Heifer Update As I reported in the weekly update, the impact of the Gift Ark will help some 738 families around the world.  What an amazing story we have to tell and I hope each of you reading this tells that story.  Now this program has ended, so there will be more help going out to the poor and hungry. The new program is called the “Joy to the World Gift Basket.”  This wonderful basket consists of 2 Sheep,…

Heifer Update for October 5, 2019

Heifer Update: Vietnam Tran Van Cong and his wife Phan Thi Loc have not always been of good cheer. But Heifer changed that. Now they have a better income and find it easier to share. Loc’s family worked as day laborers. They caught fish at night to eat and sell. Fish were easier to spot at night, but that was when the bombing was more intense. Loc and Cong made their living raising rice and beef cattle. Extended droughts caused…

Heifer Update for September 28, 2019

Isaiah says it best in chapter 58 verse 10, “Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble.  Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be bright as noon.” Just look at those faces.  They truly love their Heifer Animals.  They will produce meat, milk, eggs, wool and more.  The excess of those products will produce “money” with which families can purchase food, clothing, shelter and send their children to school. Thank you…

Heifer Update for Sept. 21, 2019

Did you Know? Pigs are considered by many to be among the smartest domestic animals and can run an impressive 11 miles per hour. Not only can they run 11 miles per hour, they can go from 3 pounds (at birth) to 200 pounds in 6 months. Even though some cultures don’t eat pork, they are still among the world’s most popular animals. Heifer families find they can double their income raising pigs. The men’s “Gift Ark” campaign continues to…

Heifer International Success Story

Pedro lived a very tough life in 1998, Hurricane Mitch destroyed his village. He and his family escaped to a remote outpost, but the soil there could produce only a few carrots and some cabbage. After feeding his family, there was little left. However, Pedro would take…

Heifer Update for August 31, 2019

Heifer Animals Are Amazing!  Did You Know? Ducks can sleep with one eye open to watch for predators.  They can even turn off half of their brain while keeping the other half alert. The east African nations of Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe were hit hard in late March by Cyclone Idai.  Whole villages were swept away leaving many families without homes, without livestock and livelihoods.  There were no reported injuries or deaths to Heifer Project participants or staff.  A small…
