Pastor Sonnel Kamara has a heart for his people. Having overseen 40 evangelical churches, this humble farmer is seeking an abundant harvest for his heavenly Father. One of his greatest desires is to equip the local church by training up men and women in 12 different villages to care for their own children. He does this by teaching them sustainable farming methods, by providing microloans towards tools and fruit trees for the men, and by involving the men and their families on his farm.
In November of 2017, the California government donated a used 1979 Ford tractor to Pastor Sonnel. He and the village men now use it to fend off the famine season by planting acres of rice, cassava and fruit trees. They also lend out the seeder and the plow to surrounding areas in order to plant seeds of the gospel. We are honored to partner with him and his team in the Kambia region of Sierra Leone.
