Wholehearted Living~Beatrice Arinyula~July 21

For awhile, Thursdays will provide a  Because of Grace Wholehearted Living Story

Hope Enough…

Beatrice Arinyula lives in Lutacho village. She joined a new type of farmer’s co-op, One Acre Fund, and is waiting for her harvest. She is suffering from hunger and faces the daily reality of doing work in her fields on an empty stomach. So do her children, Loreen and Rukia. Their father, who was a policeman, died in 2007, and since then, the family has faced an uncertain future.

But Beatrice is now optimistic. Her half acre of maize is full of strong, dark green stalks, and she anticipates one of the best harvests of her life in August. With the seed and fertilizer she received from her co-op, combined with the training provided by her field officer, Beatrice is on her way to producing more than enough food to feed her family.
