Teaching the Togolese to Fish
 

Construction for Worldwide Evangelism is an organization doing great works across the globe, their mission statement is, “To assist the local church in fulfilling the Great Commission by providing and facilitating spiritually effective mission opportunities throughout the world.”

In the fall of 2011, Morning Star Fishermen (MSF) was contacted by Paul Puleo, the founder of Construction for Worldwide Evangelism (CWE). Mr. Puleo has an interest in developing sustainable food producing systems around the world. After a visit to MSF’s training facility in Dade City Florida, meetings took place to determine if partnership between MSF and CWE could occur. In December 2011, MSF’s Executive Director, Phil Reasons, traveled to Orlando Florida and presented a collaboration plan of MSF, CWE and ABWE (Association of Baptists for World Evangelism) to CWE’s board of executives. The result was a unanimous decision to begin the collaborative project.

A location has been chosen and the plans have been drafted. MSF will work with CWE to build a full scale training facility at a center for the blind in Togo Africa. The operation managers for this facility will be a missionary couple from Tennessee. This couple will begin aquaponic training at MSF’s training facility in Florida later this Summer. The food from this aquaponic system will help feed the blind and staff who live at the facility. But it’s main purpose is to teach villagers from the surrounding areas how to create sustainable food producing systems for themselves and their families.

The people of Togo have raised 25% of the cost for the center. If you would like to join in the collaboration and help support, please contact MSF.
