About Chad & Dara Vanden Bosch
As Chad Vanden Bosch walks on the dirt path through the fields, his steps kick up dust. This area of Mozambique hasn’t seen rain in months, but the irrigation ponds are full, thanks to natural springs. A palm tree marks the corner of New Harvest Farm, where crops are growing: pineapple plants, banana trees, peppers, tomatoes, and greens. In another field, black-eyed peas grow, enriching the soil with nitrogen while providing a crop. In an adjacent pasture, six speckled goats graze.
Extreme weather conditions in Mozambique make farming difficult, and severe poverty leaves many people focused only on where to get their next meal. New Harvest Farm teaches resilient farming practices so farmers can better provide for their families. Chad and Dara serve in partnership with Audio Scripture Ministries, also providing palliative care and distributing audio Bibles. At the heart of everything they do is sharing the gospel in the language of people’s hearts.
