If you farm or garden, you understand.

How seeds so tiny,

dwarfed by your hand,

Start under the dirt and transform barren land.

From up in the mountains, to the valleys low

In forests, deserts, backyards, even under the snow,

We bury seeds in the earth,

and wait for them to grow.

We plant to feed our families

We plant to sell, trade, and take care.

This treasure God brings up

from the ground

Is a sweeter gift when shared.

Help poor families around the world

grow vegetables — vitamin-rich and leafy green.

 

Give seeds in Latin America for carrots,

onions, cabbage, lettuce, potatoes, beetroots,

and green beans.

 

In Africa, include okra, peanuts, and sorghum.

For Asia, give more rice and the edible vine,

morning glory.

These struggling farmers, always looking for

weather hints from the sky,

 

Know the worth of one tomato or radish

that is ripe.

 

They see nutritious meals for their children,

Money for medical care,

 

A chance for proper housing, clothes,

and education —

 

Leading to untold possibilites

from there

A handful of seeds can seem a gift too small.

But sometimes it’s

a tiny thing

That forever changes it all.

Help a Poor Farming Family When the Lord God planted His original garden, He “took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it” (Gen. 2:15). Ever since the fall of Adam, however, farmers have had to sweat out their harvests. What if the rains fail? Or disaster strikes? Or enemies drive them from their lands? That’s when Samaritan’s Purse can help, by providing drought resistant plants and techniques, or tools and seeds for those who are starting over. Your gift of $55 can enable a hard-working farmer to feed his family for the coming year, while also helping our teams on the ground sow seeds afor the Gospel.
