Rice & chocolate die, Hope lives on
To eradicate illicit crops, May 10, the Colombian government fumigated the Choco region without warning, destroying most, if not all, food crops in the region, including those of Weaving Hope. Run by the regional MB church, Weaving Hope is an alternative crops project supporting more than 200 families to cultivate and process food such as rice and cacao (for chocolate), fostering peace and community development. The MB church is seeking government compensation for those whose crops were destroyed and asking for prayer and solidarity from the global Anabaptist family.
