An adjunct professor in mission theology and practice in the US, Joni Wise continues to do fundraising for her small non-profit charity, which helps 350 kids in Vietnam and Cambodia go to school. After being away for two years, she now has a plane ticket to go back to Cambodia and hopefully Vietnam in early January.

Having done action research on helping people out of poverty with microfinance, Irene Banda has set up an anchor farm which has more than 200 smallholder farmers. The intention is to train the farmers to produce for both the local and international markets. Irene is also having conversations with local church leaders to provide critical leadership in these communities. The hope is that other farmers can come and learn from this model farm. In addition to her busy microfinance work, Irene also teaches Biblical Economics and Master Planning at a local Bible college.
