Imagine a way to feed the poor, do business in needy areas around the world, provide fresh fish and vegetables in orphanages around the world as well as a source of income for the orphanage. While serving them, you begin to make disciples! Jeannie and I along with some other folks who work with me here at Strategic Church Network are seriously looking at starting up an Aquaponics project for just those reasons mentioned above.

What is Aquaponics? To put is simply, it is the merging of aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing vegetables in water rather than soil.) This process has proven to be a tremendous tool on the mission field as well as a viable business model for providing income.

For more information go to the House2Harvest Network site on the Aquaponics group – http://house2harvest.ning.com/group/aquaponics You can also do a Google search and get a tons of information.

Our plan of action is as follows

First:

1.      Get some funding so that we can . . .

2.      Learn the how to build, maintain and function as a viable food source and business by going to some of the training offered here in the USA.

3.      Build some prototypes and get some hands on experience.

Second:

1.      Take it to the nations and serve the poor.

2.      Partner with orphanages so that they can have a food source and income source.

3.      Provide a business model for needy areas as well as simple church folks around the world.

4.      Using this tool to enter the lives of thousands of people in order to make disciples.

If we act on this now, by the end of this year we could begin to set up Aquaponics farms in some of the most needy areas of the world!

If you would like to partner with me on this endeavor, give me a call, drop me a note. If you have any questions, let’s talk! This is a tremendous tool to help the poor and reach people groups in some of the most difficult parts of the world.
