The ACSI Global Conference is wrapping up. Our beloved Leafa Vagatai led seminars on early learning and incorporating music with memory in the classroom! We were able to share the Recursos Magazine, collaborate with other teachers and inspire them with testimonies from the @academyforgod . We are so grateful for the opportunity to invest in teachers in the Philippines!

“Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”
Hebrews 13:3 NIV 📖
Clark and Rina Miller and our personnel in the Philippines don’t forget. In a country with some of the most overcrowded prisons in the world, Clark and Rina Miller and our SEA personnel visit prisoners every week, facilitating Bible study, distributing meals and basic hygienic supplies and checking on the overall well being of inmates. We are so thankful to see Jesus being proclaimed and praised despite incredible hardship.

Just some of our favorite people telling new students about some of our favorite things! At the @institute_for_god Volunteer Fair, students got to learn about the various operations and programs of our ministry and find out ways they can help. Service is a value strategically incorporated into Institute life via weekly volunteer hours. We can’t wait to see the ways they grow as a result!

Our team in the Philippines has been blessed to be a part of the ACSI Convergence Conference in Palo alongside 230 other educators! Dr. Wilcox, Vice President of ACSI Global (serving South Asia, East Asia and the Americas) is a wonderful leader and speaker with years of experience. Our own Alison Sherrod has been facilitating several sessions on multiple intelligences, differentiated instruction and best practices in office administration. We are so thankful for this opportunity!

** TOP TEN SUMMER SERIES ** This summer our Latin America team hosted a Friends and Family trip, introducing beloved friends and family members to the precious people we serve in El Salvador. From school visits to worship seminars, cooking workshops, extensive work around our campus and learning about the culture, we were thrilled with this trip that made a lasting impact on several participants.

** SUMMER TOP TEN SERIES ** This summer @nusubuga_andrew went back to Uganda for the first time since moving to the States, this time as a part of a team committed to education, empowerment and advocacy in the very place he was raised. 😭 Throughout the summer, our team facilitated a youth conference, constructed water catchment tanks and rocket stoves, visited, served lunch and taught a teachers’ seminar at St John’s. Our people on the ground in EA continue to showcase the benefit of empowerment as they carry out the work of ministry every day, and inspire anyone who watches them. The Lord is so good.

** TOP TEN SUMMER SERIES ** In the Philippines, our summer was filled with opportunities to introduce guests to our work. Immersion students from the @institute_for_god and Andrew Greer from @dinnerconvosmarkandrew jumped right into service at the Tacloban city jail, a local school, weekly Bible studies, and a birth clinic. They had opportunities to learn the culture, form friendships and worship together (not to mention begin recording a Waray worship album?!). We’re so thankful for their service and for all that the Lord is doing through our cooperatives at @tahanancommunitycenter in the PI!

We love our Salvadoran student interns and care for their holistic growth. After today's introductory meeting, our team's Youth Development committee will have consistent one-on-one FaceTime meetings with them, ensuring they're thriving spiritually, socially, and academically. This helps with accountability in between visits.
Having mentors to guide you in God's word in your youth is invaluable. Pray for these guys!

Gut health and probiotics are popular in the states, but in El Salvador, probiotic capsules are unaffordable and unavailable in many areas. Fermented food is a reproducible option. 🥒🥕🍅
Fermented food is loaded with good bacteria and vitamin C which help the immune system. 🥒🥕🍅 We are so happy our cooperatives are employing this culinary skill and we are all wishing we were there RIGHT NOW to taste it! 🤤

“How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!”
A team that laughs, remembers, and testifies together, stays together. We're thankful for a night of fellowship where we talked about all the Lord is doing in us as individuals, but also as a team. 💛💛💛
A close knit team where each person shares the same vision (from Christ the head) is necessary to usher in his kingdom on Earth. Paul said we're like a body (Ephesians 4), and we should work together as one.
Fellowship is fundamental in working together as a body, so we're REALLY glad our team is AMAZING...and super funny😏

For the last year, Team Cooperative, Lorena, and our student interns have hosted and facilitated a monthly gathering for 25+ youth. 🎉📖🌮
This weekend, they went over the parable of the sower, Matt. 13:1-9. The youth were encouraged to be good soil, to produce good fruit, and be different from the world around them.
Several of our team members made videos saying hi to the youth, encouraging them, and reminding them that we are all praying for them. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Pray for these youth. They have a hunger for God's word and they want to learn, but their environment often makes it difficult. We know God is meeting them!

READ THE BLOG--> LINK IN BIO. Team members Vanessa @labreadco and Julie facilitated nutrition workshops with our Salvadoran cooperatives and student interns. The information ranged from anatomy to fermentation benefits. These times are more than just teaching information--we are empowering our friends to take charge of their own health in a very broken healthcare system.

A new produce tent has opened in Uganda, offering education and organic vegetables to our neighbors. The Faithwells Garden stand is introducing new products like moringa and amaranth flours, and teaching about the nutritional benefits, along with kale, peppers, pumpkin and more. We are so happy for this blessing to be shared, and encouraged by the response on opening day!

Despite poor rain fall in the Kabonge area, and throughout many areas of East Africa, our land has been producing an abundance. We’ll use this abundance to sell at a price that is not inflated to our neighbors, extending the blessing which the Lord has given us! #loveyourneighbor #godea #farming #godintl
This week the cooperative wives in UG were in charge of sharing the Word during our community morning devotion at 6:00am! Women in the word and women speaking the word is foundational for health in any society and we are so excited they are making it happen! #godintl #bibleteaching #womensvoice #eastafrica
We had quite a special day! The immersion team, our cooperatives and the wonderful John Nyago hosted John’s parents, Tom and Robinah, for a meal and time of testimony regarding the impact Tom and Robinah had on their lives of faith. Pastor Tom was the first man that Gregg Garner met in a miraculous work of God that brought us to Uganda and it was so precious to host and encourage them. Everyone was built up, knowing that “God has truly begun this work and God will complete it” (Pastor Tom’s encouragement).
Francis Lubega, our Facilities Manager in Uganda, teaches an immersion participant from the @institute_for_god (Jesse Grooms) how to mix cement and plaster a new water cistern for a group of families. With drought happening across East Africa, preserving what rainwater does come is an important first step! #instituteforgod #eastafrica #sustainablebuilding #waterpreservation
Please join us in prayer for this awesome team! A few of them are traveling to East Africa for the first time, others will immerse themselves as part of the @institute_for_god program, and we’ve got a few key facilitators to boot. 👌🏾We’re so excited for their time. 🙏🏽 #godintl #godeastafrica #mission #immersion #instituteforgod
One motto we cherish at G.O.D. is “what we do here is what we do there,” meaning that our mission and activity remains the same regardless of the region where it is be carried out. These photos, both taken this week, remind us of this very thing!
Photo 1: children in our Sunday Bible program in Kenya learn about the value of generosity. As a result, they share bananas and fruit with a neighboring woman with a severe leg injury. This is no small gift as their families are praying daily for more rain for their crops!

New photo story from East Africa Cooperative Lawrence Ssemakula is up on the @god_intl blog. Link in bio!
Last weekend, teachers at St. John’s Primary School organized a Sports Day for all students and their parents. This initiative was spearheaded by G.O.D. Int’l Cooperative, Josephine Ssemakula. In Uganda, a Sports Day is an event for parents to come and see their children perform various talents. It also serves as a time for teachers to interact with parents and update them on how their children are doing in school.
The chief guest from the Wakiso District education office thanked G.O.D Int’l so much for the exceptional love that they have shown the children for the last almost five years now by helping to meet the needs of children and even more recently the Lunch Program and helping to transform the school and elevating its status in the area.

This past weekend, we held a conference at our headquarters in Delhi that was inspired by scripture to discuss the good direction that God’s word gives us to live. We studied together, shared meals, sang, and engaged in ice breakers to further develop relationships both with God and his people. #godindia #ngo #delhi #socialworker #community #development
Healthy relationships begin one friendship, one relationship at a time.

This week in Palo, Leyte, SEA team personnel, Alison, Leafa, and Irish were blessed to attend the ACSI Convergence Conference. Over 500 school leaders and educators, representing Christian schools on islands throughout the Philippines were in attendance in addition to ACSI Global representatives. Alison and Leafa facilitated over a dozen breakout sessions on topics of music education, school administration, teaching primary students, and the multiple intelligences theory. What a full week with so many wonderful education leaders from around the world! 🙌🏽🙏🏽 #philippines #education #godintlsea #godintl #acsi #acsiglobal
Every Sunday morning at Tahanan, the upstairs floor is filled with the songs and laughter of children learning the bible with Teacher Irish and Tahanan interns. That’s because their mothers are gathered below doing the very same - playing games, singing songs to the Lord, and studying the bible. To end the morning, everyone shares a meal together and rests in the goodness of our Lord. This week, team members Alison Sherrod and Leafa Vagatai are present to join! #tahanankids #godintlsea #godintl

Students Living A Mission
2019 Da Mission El Salvador has officially come to an end, but these guys all agree Da Mission never ends! They’re hearts are soft and ready to keep serving God with their whole lives. The experiences, relationships and biblical education they received this summer have marked them. They’ll never be the same. Pray for them as they continue to strive to do the work they’ve seen the Father doing!

We love kids!! The kids in the neighborhood are on our campus weekly for educational activities and our interns volunteer regularly at their school. When we host teams the kids love the fresh energy they bring on our campus and in the classrooms. We're grateful to serve these kids TOGETHER--they deserve it!
#slammissions #studentslivingamission #damission #elsalvador
As our team was about to leave after a school visit, a group of students ran around the corner and asked for more classes. Following them back in, they made it clear they wanted more English practice so our team delivered!
Project leader Michael Johnson and Campus Manager Antonio Mejia are excited to put these youth to work! The youth assisted in laying brick and connecting water lines between different @godintl_la campus buildings. The walkway provides a much needed covering so students, interns and guests can walk around campus without getting drenched during rainy season.

Experts agree that debriefing is one of the most crucial parts of a cross cultural experience. Our team is taking time to reflect, journal, pray, worship, and continue to serve together while processing what they saw, what God did, and how they’ve been changed as a result. #damission2019 #elsalvador
Tonight we welcomed groups from @hayesbartonumc @academyforgod @mtsylvanuth and Arcola, IL, ready to learn about and live Da Mission —Gods Mission! We are ready for a great week!
Gerron met Franklin during a mission trip with the @Academyforgod and encouraged him to pursue the Lord and learn his Word just as he was doing. During Da Mission, Gerron was happy to find that Franklin did that very thing, attending Bible conferences and youth gatherings all year with @godintl_la while Gerron spent his first year at the @instituteforgod. Both young men have experienced the peace, nearness and power of God as a result of studying his Word. What a testimony of James 4:8 - “Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” #damission2019 #elsalvador

The day is finally here, people! We stopped for a breakfast burrito at @califarmiatruck who opened up their new location in Hermitage today! We are stoked. Legit the best breakfast we’ve had in Nashville and they are all about sourcing local - which includes our produce 👊🏽 Do yourself a favor and check them out this weekend!
We always have our go-to’s for cherry tomatoes: Sungold and Black Cherry. We also love trying new varieties each year. This year it is Pink Bumblebee and Sunrise Bumblebee from @highmowingorganicseeds. Enjoy them while they’re here!
Here comes the Honey! We have several hundred pounds coming in and it really is natures candy. Thanks to @jbarnett740 for all he does with our apiary. Currently these are exclusively in our Farm Share boxes but will soon be available at market.
Here’s to quick summer lunches from the farm ☀️A zucchini noodle, heirloom tomato salad with basil pesto to take it over the top! Yes please! Come see us this Friday from 4-7pm @hipdfarmersmarket
Just a casual farm lunch for @amontgomery84 🤯 Full of our fresh Lacinato Kale, Seasonal Lettuce Mix, Spring Onions and Fennel 👌🏽 How are you getting your nutrients for the day? Check link in bio to hit up our store.
We pulled 75 pounds of Red Inchelium Garlic from the ground this morning and they are getting some TLC from Mike and Jameson.

Nu Water Works
Facing extreme drought, families in Kenya are attempting to dig hand dug wells to access water. These pictures show a recent well dug at our friend’s house. They hit water 20 feet from the surface. There is still more work to be done, but they are thankful to have found some water.
#kenyadrought #water-source #handdugwells #NuWaterWorks2019 #godeastafrica #godintl
Although water-tanker-trucks are not a sustainable community water source, they temporarily alleviate the burden people face in drought stricken areas where infrastructure is not set up well to serve its community.
In times of crisis like the drought one Kenya is facing, these trucks have been able to deliver water to people we know and love. We are thankful!
#NuWaterWorks2019 #godeastafrica #godintl #watertanktruck
Water tanker trucks are considered an unimproved water source. Many people in drought stricken areas, where water sources are drying up, are dependent on water to be deliver by trucks like this one. At times it can take 2-3 weeks for a tanker to make it to a rural area due to the demand in the region.
Water sources used to fill a tanker is often unknown by the consumer. Many times untreated water is collected from the nearest watering hole to the tankers destination. A dependency on fuel and vehicle not breaking down become additional factors for getting water transported to those who need it.
We are thankful for the work these drivers do to help get water to people who need it in time of need. We also must keep looking at how improved water sources can be developed to alleviate the stress families feel during times of drought.

Matt, a student from the Institute for Global Outreach Developments International, enjoying the opportunity to learn from our Ugandan cooperative Francis on how to build a water cistern. This 7,000 liter tank will be utilized to store rainwater. When water is a challenging resources to collect, tanks like this lighten the burden for those who have to collect water for their daily needs. .
