As we begin a new year, our goat project is doing well.
All the animals are happy and looking good. We have had close to 50mm of rain to date and the farm is beginning to turn different shades of green. The grass is sprouting where it was burnt a few months ago which the goats are thoroughly enjoying.
I took Thomas to the local kids club a few weeks ago and we both decided that it wasn’t the right tool to use to meet and identify beneficiary families in the community. I will introduce Thomas to another young pastor that I know who is already doing door to door visits in the community so he can tag along and start meeting different families.
We’ve started our breeding cycle for the year with the ladies being grouped together with two of the bucks, so hopefully we will have another good crop of kids in May. After having trouble with jackal, we have made sure the pens are strong and secure so that the goats are safer at night. We're always learning and making changes ... a growing experience!
