“Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.
For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be,
and it shall be well with thee.”
- Psalm 128:1-2 (KJV)
One way to make a lasting impact is with farm projects and vocational assistance.
WME uses the Food For Hunger Program to deliver basic necessities to those who need
immediate assistance just to survive TODAY. But what is the long-term solution for helping to
change people’s lives so they can provide for their families and be self-sufficient TOMORROW?
There is a famous Chinese proverb that says: “GIVE A MAN A FISH, AND YOU FEED HIM FOR A DAY.
TEACH A MAN TO FISH, AND YOU FEED HIM FOR A LIFETIME.” WME believes in efforts that make a lasting
impact on the lives of individuals, and by extension, their families and communities.
Farming provides food for the needy, teaches self-sufficiency and supports ongoing
In many foreign lands, people simply cannot find work, so their families do not eat. Farm
projects provide food to the hungry and teach valuable skills. Farm projects can also support
other missions work, promote local industry and teach people self-sufficiency.
Farm animals are “a gift that keeps on giving” and can help sustain an entire family.
Farm animals provide a family with eggs, milk, cheese and other nutritious products. And the
family can sell extra food products and animal offspring. That is why the gift of chickens,
milk goats, cows, pigs or water buffalo is such a blessing in places where WME works. And for
our Native Missionaries, a strong work horse can move supplies and carry the Gospel to remote
villages in mountainous terrain.
Vocational assistance is an important outreach that can take many forms.
Vocational assistance may be providing mechanical tools so a father can find regular work.
Or it could be giving a sewing machine to a single mother so she can feed her children by
selling clothing. It may be getting training to ministers or sponsoring young people in Bible Schools.
You may send fishing nets or a small boat to believers in a seaside village. You can provide
computer skills to young people. You might give seed and farming tools, enabling a family to raise
crops. Or you can give training and equipment to enable individuals to work in cosmetology,
automotive services, construction or a similar trade.
