Dear Advancing Ones:
Proverbs 29:18 says, “Without a vision a people perish.” Essentially, without prophetic utterance we begin to go backwards. That is why we have prepared a special service for this Sunday: LET THE PROPHETS SPEAK! Don’t miss hearing from key voices like Bill Johnson, Ché Ahn, Patricia King, Daniel Pierce, Norma Sarvis, Rick Joyner, Tom & Jane Hamon, John & Sheryl Price, Sean Feucht and Melinda Richardson who will provide the unction for all of us to continue pressing forward in this key month. We are decreeing that you are progressing as we are progressing here at the Global Spheres Center. Join us by webcast this Sunday at 9 AM (CDT) to grab hold of the revelation needed to overcome all month long. Since there is so much to share, we will take a short break during the live service and then offer the replay in two parts.
Impacting the Land: Beulah Acres Agroforest Update!
In the beginning, God began with a Garden. That is the reason when we first purchased this property that we began by developing a Garden. We also have worked to connect the Garden into the Tabernacle and the rest of this complex. As God’s remnant here in the earth, we are called to enforce His covenant that was established in the Garden.
Late last fall, Beulah Acres Center was approved for a new Agroforest program. Agroforest is a land development method based on the symbiotic cooperation of trees, plants and wild life that are vital in generating a sustainable ecosystem for the harvest of organic produce. Daniel Arenas has been teaching this new program, and we are excited to be at the forefront of helping develop sustainable models of stewardship.
July projects focused on irrigation efficiency (cutting back 85% of irrigation time by putting together a moveable system in part of the agroforest) and a swale/dam project to collect rainwater to reduce city water use. We had 35 Denton County Master Gardeners, Texas Master Naturalists, Illuminate and independent volunteers onsite. Additionally, a 5-class Permanent Garden Series on the basics of vegetable gardening was hosted for the community, as well as a Global Gardeners class for Illuminate students (7 – 11 years old) that featured watermelon, cantaloupe and zinnias. As you can see below, we had an amazing harvest! We are now working on a full year calendar with recorded classes to include lesson plans and home activities.
