Defining Love: Emmanuel's Story

Emmanuel Baya learned sustainable agriculture techniques at the Asian Rural Institute, a Mission & Service partner that teaches farming skills. Now, he is passing on life-saving information to over 287 children and 7 communities. An incredible story for World Food Sunday. A video of Emmanuel's story is also available.
