Kham’s family used to be hungry, and his parents often didn’t eat so that the children received enough.
A few years ago, using the rice seeds and methods that are traditional in their village in Laos, they experienced shortages. Now, with improved varieties, they have plenty to eat.
“When my brother and I went with my parents to the farm on the weekend, I was very happy to see our rice field. It is very beautiful,” says Kham. “My parents and I were able to have enough rice.”
Psalm 4:7 says “Fill my heart with joy when their grain and new wine abound.”
Be joyful for those today who have abundant food and clean water.
