Refugees escape turbulent and war-torn situations in order to find peace. One of the components of a peaceful new start is marked by a family’s confidence to grow. With the help of childbirth educators and doulas like Elise Gerard, we’re doing our best to make sure they get the new beginning they deserve.

Sneha Purti leads a “girls talk” at the local school in India, giving them a venue to explore self-image, health, nutrition and the changes that occur during adolescence—all topics typically left undiscussed due to cultural taboos. It’s been a joy to see Sneha come to life as she invests into young girls the kind of education she wished she would have received.

BREATHE, A New Musical, joins the brilliant Dr. Walker on a mission to save his daughter’s life. Caught in the conflict of negotiating the rules set by the administrative powers and their conservative position to maximize profits, Dr. Walker is determined to do whatever it takes, but can he overcome the power of sickness and death, trading in what time he has left with those he loves? Or will he risk losing those final moments in order to work and maybe, save them from dying?
BREATHE, A New Musical opens November 10 and runs through Sunday, November 19. Get your tickets today, by visiting the link in our bio!

Did you know that STEM-related occupations are increasing faster compared to all other occupations (17% versus 9.8%)? At CASE, we're not just trying to help students through middle school, but how to help them succeed in life, and that includes focusing on STEM. Time to test the optimal height and speed of rubber band helicopters!

Every Tuesday, Rina Miller visits the nearly 100 inmates at the Tacloban City Jail Female Dorm (a space intended for 30). In addition to conducting bible studies and offering encouragement, Rina attends court hearings on behalf of the women. Recently she was awarded an appreciation certificate for her work and consistency. We're so proud of the work she does!

According to the @academyforgod it’s one of the most wonderful days of the year! It’s always our pleasure to invite grandparents into their students’ educational journey. This year was no exception! Thanks to the over 100 honored guests at today’s Grandparents Day, we felt an overwhelming amount of love and support towards our students and school!

Every week, @instituteforgod students prepare, package and deliver nutritious meals to the elderly in our neighborhood. We love that students are learning that service doesn’t have to look like a big production, it can occur in the small, natural moments throughout their week. Emily Marotta, first year student at the Institute says: “Getting to build relationships with my friends and with the widows we serve is wonderful. It’s really cool to hear little bits of their stories and see them light up when we bring them meals. I love it!” (🥕🥒🍅🥗 credit to @hopewell_gardens ) #godintl #instituteforgod #elderlycare #loveyourneighbor
We're gonna miss this a little. 😥It's been another sweet season of hosting @midstatesports youth soccer league. We love that kids are learning skills, gaining friendships and getting connected to positive role models.

Great week = @carmel_youth + putting other's needs before their own. Thanks for serving with us, and keep serving back in Indiana! 👊🏽#humblesummer17 #slammissions @slam_missions
Remember this face? 😍Antonia is now standing in the shade of her new roof and overhang, a project started by last week's @slam_missions group, @mcgrawsville.youth and completed this week by @carmel_youth .
Antonia and her daughter, Angelita, live in a 1-room mud home that would flood every time it rained. Last week, @mcgrawsville.youth built the walls necessary to hold the roof, and yesterday @carmel_youth finished some remaining structural necessities and then put up the new roof! Now she and her daughter have somewhere to rest, protected from the elements.
Antonia made coffee for the team, because she is always serving others even out of her own need. She told team leader, Matt Parker, "I love the new space and I'm so thankful to God that I was not forgotten." .
The Body of Christ, working together to care for a widow, a friend, is the Kingdom of God at hand. "He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" -Micah 6:8 #humblesummer17 #slammissions
⚠️WARNING: Amazing service report ⚠️Part 1: @carmel_youth first day was FULL. A walk through the sugar cane fields led part of our group to Maria’s house, an elderly widow suffering the debilitating effects of cancer. We built new columns to support the new roof we are constructing for her (her current roof is falling over) and ended with an emotional, Spirit-filled time of prayer.
Part 2: The rest of the team went to work on the property of a single woman, Fina, who has a small garden bed. It was in dissaray and not producing food. The group cleaned up the plot, preparing for new garden beds.
Part 3: To cap it off, the group facilitated a Kids Camp! They taught about the 7 days of creation, used crafts to let the kids make visualizations of the days, and played a rousing game of duck duck goose. The kids loooved it!! #humblesummer #slamsummer17 @slam_missions
@carmel_youth have arrived in El Salvador! 🇸🇻 Pray for them as they serve, that the Lord would be near to them all. Excited for another amazing @slam_missions week! #humblesummer #slamsummer17
g.o.d. East Africa
When our friends ask us to bring them more instruments so that they can worship God louder and better, we gladly comply. Over the course of this last year our community in East Africa has received a variety of instruments, a sound system and several worship seminars that have helped them realize the power they have to lead people close to God through song. We love getting updates from them writing and performing songs to express their love of Jesus! —�—
#godeastafrica #godintl #worship
Today EA Summit participants were challenged to identify societal issues, then write a skit that addressed one particular issue and propose a solution. Dealing with materialism, elderly neglect and drug use, the youth did well to share their perspective through drama. This led to further dialogue and reflection on God's Word. 👏🏽
🎶Jesus is a mighty God! East Africa bow before him! 🎶 Reuben Ndwiga leads our Summit in worship, followed by prayer and Bible Study. If we want a powerful day together, we must begin by inviting his presence and preparing our hearts. So that's what we'll do!
One of today's talks was about innovation and how it can lead to lasting change. To drive home the concept, Cameron Kagay guided Summit participants on a tour of our hub in Uganda, explaining the intentional choices we made with each structure, combining appropriate technology with innovative design. They were enthralled!
These are some of the special youth attending our 2017 East Africa Summit! It's been a wonderful first day as we've discussed God as Creator and the responsibility of those made in his image to use innovation and creativity to pose lasting solutions to situations of poverty. Please pray with us for this time!
This summer we offered vision exams for all 400 of the students at St John's Primary as well as their staff! (This was the first vision test any of the students had ever received.) Working with a generous ophthalmologist who visited St John's and kicked off our exams, students and staff in need were either given reading glasses or the means to attend an eye clinic for continued care. We are praising God that EVERYONE at St. John's will soon be able to SEE!!! 😭😭😭
We sure are going to miss our @slam_missions summer interns! They've been an amazing help through so many projects this summer, made new friendships, and experienced the Lord and what he is doing among this special community in East Africa. We couldn't ask for anything more! (...except maybe a promise to come back sometime? 😝🤔🤗) We loved having you Matt, Tuesday, Brittan and Tiff! Gyebaleko!
The best way to break down cultural divides: submit to God's Word as the authority! But that takes work--specifically, disciplined study of the Bible. Students from the @institutegodintl help students from The Institute EA with observations, a key component of the Inductive Study Method.
This week the St. John's school garden was ready for harvest! With immersion team members and summer interns on the field, we were able to provide a nutritious lunch to 400 kids! 😭😭😭 Menu: potatoes, beans, squash, melon and pineapple!
Tori Gygi utilizes the Saturday workshop class time to assist the Institute EA students to use a mind map to study and remember what they are taught. It's such a blessing to be around people that care about you and are there for you, to see you excel. This only happens amongst God's people, that have a unified mission, values and goal to glorify God. (Caption by Peter Kimbugwe)
We are so pumped at how well our music theory students are doing with their first song as a band!

Long time since I posted something about "girls talk". It has been a great time teaching and letting these girls know about their bodies and the diet they should have on a daily basis.

With full schedules of school, work, and service, Institute students are learning the importance of Sabbath. On Sunday nights they gather to worship, hear the Word, and fellowship with one another, reflecting on God's faithfulness for the last week and preparing their hearts and minds for the one to come! •
#instituteforgod #godintl #nashville #bibleschool #biblestudy #prayer #worship #sabbath
Through weekly service projects, our students are learning that service is holistic and happens best through a team effort. "Holistic" means it could include growing food, organizing supplies, creating a hospitable environment, or making sure kids and widows get good food. A successful team effort is refined through consistent practice!
It's Institute Chapel & Projects Day! Every Wednesday our students take a break from class to worship the Lord, hear from his Word, and implement practical projects that serve our neighbors. From landscaping to elderly care, preparing a Community Center to helping kids grow vegetables, students grow in their capacity for competent service and are challenged to demonstrate love! What will today hold?!
We are praying for all of our Institute Online students who started class this week! 🙏🏼👏🏽Here's one awesome testimony from student @londonfalco #repost •
I dropped out of high school at 15, got my GED at 28 and am back at school at 35. Education has been huge for me. I've always felt less than because I never got one. It's my biggest insecurity and my only regret. I stress the importance of education to my kids everyday. Without one you're stuck, physically and mentally. I'm so blessed with the opportunity to grow in my education and spiritually. I know God will be with me though this journey. When we seek and obey the Lord our greatest reward is his presence.

Hopewell Farms wants to thank Farmer Seth for all his hard work and friendship over the last 5 years. Seth and his family will be moving close to family on the West coast and starting a farm in southern Oregon. We wish him all the best, knowing that he carries with him so much experience that will be put to good use farming in the Pacific Northwest. So many memories were formed and we are thankful for all we got to share along the way!
From here forward, Geoff Hartnell will now be managing Hopewell Farms (and this instagram!). Together with some new hires and a faithful volunteer base, we are excited for what God will do through Hopewell Farms.
Tonight our farm crew met to celebrate, discuss and cast vision for the transition of our operation into Hopewell Farms (formerly Hopewell Gardens). With thankfulness we announce our growing team has already begun preparing our new and larger, 1.5 acre plot (just next door) for an improved 2018 CSA program, new facilities for education and production, a research and development zone for our international development work and many other exciting endeavors that will be announced over the next year. It was a special night and with change comes opportunity for growth and unity. A special thanks to @kendicehartnell @kimkroberts @geoffsmomma @mrscorniea for the delicious, homemade food.

Had an awesome time touring local demonstration farm "Agromax" near Kampala today. We've got lots of new ideas to enhance our own production, and a new shade net to construct a seedling nursery for hardening off transplants. Healthy seedlings = healthy crops! Man I love spending time with the guys in this picture so much! #farminginafrica
In this morning’s farm efficiency workshop, we organized a race and learned that one person with the newly introduced collinear hoe could accomplish the same work of 5 people hand weeding in the traditional style. It only took 3 minutes for the one student with the new tool to not only weed, but simultaneously cultivate a 50’ garden bed!
The collinear hoe is a long handled tool designed for precision cultivating and weeding in between closely spaced crops, ergonomically designed to keep the farmer in an upright position, saving unnecessary wear and tear on the body from repetitive bending down.
Nu Water Works
Irrigation can be a challenging task, when the rains aren't enough. These guys are determined to see this small school garden plot succeed, even though it doesn't have a direct water source. They ride their bikes to the local borehole and collect water with their 20 liter jerry cans to bring back to the garden. This hard work is a picture of what it typically takes to help a crop succeed in sub Saharan Africa when water is deficient. #challenged

Samuel, our new friend, recently helped us install a water tap that will irrigate this newly cultivated 1/4 acre of land. This agriculture project will assist a local Ugandan school in growing food for their school lunch program. Samuel, along with three other young men will be helping to manage the food production on this plot of land.
#nuwaterworks #godintl #foodproduction #water #irrigation
Francis Lubega shares on the impact the drip irrigation system we recently installed will have on those who work the agriculture plot and the community it serves.
#nuwaterworks #godintl #irrigation #water #foodproduction
Annette Lubega has a passion to teach children about health. Here she is teaching on personal hygiene to her primary class. She told me her heart aches when she sees her students sick and hungry. She sees that hygiene education is one way of helping these students fight some of the sickness they experience.
#nuwaterworks #godintl #hygieneeducation #nextgeneration #educationbringschange
Francis Lubega and Josh Kurtz have been making adaptations to water supply lines to accommodate for the drip irrigation system being installed in the 1 acre community garden in Uganda. Prior to this drip irrigation system, those who worked the garden would spend 3 hours a day trying to irrigate their crops, yet only be able to irrigate 1/3 of the crops. Francis Lubega said that they could easily spend 9 hours per day irrigating if they were to water all the crops. Change is coming and is here.
#nuwaterworks #godintl #dripirrigation #water #foodproduction
Water has been scarce in this central region of Uganda we work. Over the past couple seasons, farmers have lost many crops.
Seth Davis is helping to install a drip irrigation system with our friends Simon, Rueben, Edwin, and Elijah (not pictured - Francis Lubega) on a bio-intensive agriculture plot in Uganda. Currently, these men spend on average 3 hours per day watering the crops trying to curb the lack of rain they have experienced. Now that is changing where they can focus on preparing more garden beds for food production. #nuwaterworks #irrigation #godintl #water
In 6 days a team of 3 ( Cameron Kagay, Josh Kurtz, and Seth Davis) will be heading to Uganda. The past 2 growing seasons have been difficult in Uganda as rains have been sporadic and sparse which has led to crop failures for many. This has been devastating for families in the region. These three will be working with our friends in Uganda to address irrigation issues in the community garden we work with, perform a management seminar, and help develop a school lunch program for 390 students at a school our organization works with.
#nuwaterworks #godintl #irrigation #forthekids #empowerment
Geoff Hartnell sets up a drip irrigation system in our community garden--the same system that we’ll be installing in Uganda in just a few weeks. Drip irrigation frees up a farmer’s time, helps prevent crop disease, and conserves water. Utilizing this kind of innovation in East Africa couldn’t be more timely with a severe drought currently affecting millions of people. Praise God!
We discovered at a school outside of Delhi, India that their main water supply was contaminated after performing a water test. The test causes clear water to change color to indicate whether harmful pathogens are in the water like E.Coli. Bag on left (black water) identifies a contaminated water supply. Bag on right (yellow water) identifies the same water supply as clean after a Reverse Osmosis system was installed by Stephen Carver. The students at this school now have a clean water source they can drink from safely! #cleanwaterchangeslives #watertestingforlife #nuwaterworks #godintl #cleanwater
Construction is underway on our hand-washing station! You may notice it's made of marble. 🤔Trees are scarce around India's National Capital Region, and lumber is near impossible to come by. After evaluating local resources, Stephen Carver adapted his original plans and is moving forward with installation using more available material.🚰#wheninindia🇮🇳 #India #GODIndia #sanitation #publichealth #water
