2017 was a challenging year for the Miwani farm project. A persistent drought and the subsequent fire, which destroyed a large portion of the croplands, threw back the farm development quite a bit. Thankfully, a new pastor could be found: Maureen.

Maureen Faith Samba, age 35, is now responsible for the program for children and students as well as for the church. As Maureen was rejected by her family as a child, she began living on the streets. After finding trust in Jesus, she got married to her husband Charles at a very young age. Having birthed four children, she returned to school at age 22, finished high school and began studying theology. In 2017 she graduated with high distinction. Maureen now lives on the farm, together with her husband and children.  

Welcome to the team, Maureen!
