Johura Begum is a farmer-entrepreneur in Bangladesh who supports her family with year-round crops.
Johura and her husband have learned to grow vegetables, fruits, and spices, and to produce fish, meat, and eggs to sell and to keep their family healthy.
“It has been a very long journey,” she says of the eight years it has taken her and her extended family to move from hunger and poverty to self-sufficiency.
Psalm 126:5 “Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.”
Pray for those who are weighed down by needs that soon they will experience joy.
