Opportunity Arises pt 3

Mrs Sibanda

Recently, a Field day was held at Justin Thebe's field in Mablauwuni village. About 25 people from the community there to see Justin's tomato crop which is looking healthy.

Justin shared his testimony about how he, like many other young people, wanted to head off to South Africa hoping to find greener pastures. his mother told him about Ebenezer's  Selection Camp. He was selected and spent 2 years at Ebenezer. He was then selected to continue on the Advancer programme. With all the water at his home, Justin was selected to become a model farmer in the community. he agreed to this and left the Advancer programme. His tomato crop is doing exceptionally well and he is setting an example for the community on how to do things with a high standard. The older men in the community now also want to model what Justin has done.

Peter Cunningham also spoke about the vision and the way forward for Beyond belief in terms of using every water point in the community and spoke about Beyond Belief reaching as far as Mtshabezi which is on the Beit Bridge road (quite a distance from Mablauwuni village)
Justin Thebe
Mrs Sibanda, one of the Community Leaders encouraged the community not to be jealous of Justin or the Thebe family for doing so well. She encouraged the community to support him and to chase any stray animal that may venture into his field.

Everyone was totally impressed with the crops.

Well done Justin. I hope you get an amazing harvest from this crop.
