Dedication and ceremonial planting kick off 2022 pepper growing season
March 30 was a warm and windy day at the El Oasis Children’s Village in Mexico. Excitement ran high on campus as this would be the special day dedicating the 2022 pepper project to the Lord.
The El Oasis family gathered at the campus church at 1:00 PM. During the program, the campus band played and there was a special message presented. Once the final prayer finished, everyone walked toward the waiting field. The procession paused beside a grove of trees. The 1st and 2nd graders recited Psalm 91 and the consecration prayer was given.
Everyone, children as well as adults, had the opportunity to plant a little jalapeño seedling. What a special moment this was for the El Oasis family.
This is the pepper farm’s 5th year. For 2022, 32 acres of serrano and jalapeño peppers are planned. With God’s help, the harvest will begin by the end of June. This has the potential to provide significant financial support for El Oasis.
Mauro Reyes, Jr. one of the administrators said, “God has been greatly merciful with El Oasis Village. How could we not recognize that every blessing comes from Him?”
Please pray for God’s blessing upon this project again this year!
