Challenges Bring Changes and Changes Bring Challenges
Next Generation Ministries began with a vision, but not much of a blueprint. It began with a compass, pointed in the right direction, but without a road map. The journey, while delightful, is still invigorating with both adventure and challenge.
We have made a major change this year and we invite you to be a part of it! If we wanted to go fast we would go alone. But, since we want to go far we want to go together.
It's not easy. Buying land in Uganda, that is. To verify that the "seller" is really the landowner can be a challenge. Other times the owner or person claiming to be the owner can sell the land to more than one person. Or, one or more of the relatives or heirs may want to make a claim to the land. Like I said. It ain't easy!

|Edgar ... NGM Farm Manager|
|Edgar explains farming to the NGM driver Peter!|
We have encouraged Edgar to dream big about the farm. His vision is to see the farm produce 300 liters of milk per day. He would love to see the farm develop milk products like ice cream, cheese, and butter. He also dreams of being able to provide instruction, consultation, and resources to those interested in cattle farming and those who have receive cows so that they are prosperous with their opportunity. He dreams of being able to provide the best quality cows for other dairies in the area.
the average American Starbucks customer spends over $900 annually on coffee. We would welcome any portion of that! Two hundred and fifty dollars a month will pay Edgar's salary and the small expenses associated with this farm. But, more cows should be purchased as well. Would you be willing to join this new adventure with us. Would you be willing to help find groups that would like to help grow the farm with the purchase of more cows? Would you be willing to contribute to the currently monthly needs on a regular basis for a year? The opportunities are there. Why not join us in this change and help us meet the challenges?
