Growing Hope sends representatives to developing, poverty stricken countries to teach them better methods of crop production, crop selection and storage facilities that insures them a better year around food supply.

In additional they are taught how to dig wells and make dams to give them a constant water supply.

It is heart warming to hear these people tell how Growing Hope has helped them.

All can be a part of this by attending a soup and pie luncheon at the Edgerton United Methodist Church for a free-will offering on Sunday, Nov. 10, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
