Incredible Progress on the Bangladesh Mission Farm & Fish Pond
Praise the Lord. We are grateful to our Almighty God (Jesus Christ). He is worthy to be praised.
According to Bible, The book of 1 John 5:14 “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us”. We have been praying for land for His work and He hears our prayer as we obey His commandments (John 14:15). It proves that God really hears us as His obedient children. So you know you are only a friend of Jesus if you obey Him? John 15:14 “Ye are my friends, IF ye do whatsoever I command you.”
We are also still praying for land and gave this land to Lord. We have already started our work on the land and have made great progress in the last few weeks. We are working step by step as we prepare the land for good farming. First, we dug the land by hand 80 feet long, 40 feet wide and 7 feet deep to make a fish pond. This pond will be used for fish cultivation. Moreover we used this soil for the land border and also used some soil to make the land base high where we can cultivate some vegetables and superfood Moringa. Then we covered the whole land by fence for security from animals. For fence, we have used pillar, metal wire, net and barbed wire. Cattle or other animal cannot enter in the land now. It does deter humans too but we really need to build a small 2 room home to house a 24/7 caretaker to watch over this land God blessed us with. Countless thousands of fish will be sold from here as well as fruit, vegetables, etc so we must be good stewards of this land. Would you please help us? We need just $2,000 USD to build this caretaker home which includes a storefront to sell the harvest from the farm. Click here or see below below the videos.
Initially we have started our farming and started to stick the pond with about 1500 fishes (various kind) in the pond including Rui/Rohu fish, Pool barb, Silver cup fish, Tilapia fish and Grass cup fish, etc. Every day we are giving food in the pond for the fish. We put some bamboo sticks in the pond to try to deter anyone from trying to steal the fish. We have started to pant some vegetables and fruit trees in this land too. Trees are guava tree, lemon, jujube, papaya and sapota tree etc. We are planning to plant more trees in the land before rainy season. If we can plant trees before rain, it will be good for tree because tree can get whole rainy season. We know Rainy season is the best time for tree plantation.
We are praying for our initially farming because it is our first time with our own land and we want to have the blessing of God to provide the harvest for His glory. This farming project will help fund our other mission projects like our Christian school, evangelism, orphan & widow help, etc. We believe that our God will continue to be glorified by this mission work. We have more work in that land that we must to do and are working day and night. As briefly explained above, our prayer is to build a small house so that someone can stay here to take care of the farm full time. We need a simple tube well for water because this is a salty area. Good drinking water is rare so for good water we have to depend on rain or tube well; and then electricity. So, we are praying for these. We have to do all these step by step. Not our will but everything will be done according to God’s will. We believe that god help us to do these things in His time. God bless you. Amen -Brother’s Hilton & Daniel Biswas
