Tractor for The Brothers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Africa

Region:

Africa

Missioner Responsible:

Bro. Loren Beaudry, M.M.

The Brothers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a Religious group of Brothers in the Archdiocese of Mwanza. Bro. Loren Beaudry wants to help educate the Brothers to be mechanics, carpenters, teachers etc.

The Brothers are running a farm of about 30 acres. They have 15 cows, 20 pigs, 30 goats and some chickens, and Bro. Loren Beaudry hopes to help the ‘Brothers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus’ to purchase a tractor. In order to help the Brothers of the ‘Sacred Heart of Jesus’ to raise money for up-keep of their proposed tractor, they will be cultivating the neighbors fields for profit.   They also have a grinding mill for corn and rice.  The profits from this machine will also bring them some money.  They can also sell some pigs, chickens or cows to bring them some more money, if need be.

This program will allow prospective Brothers to come and live with the Brothers’ Community to see if a life of prayer, community living and manual labor is right for them.
