    The wisdom and content of what you are providing and teaching is what I have been wanting to do as a ministry here in Florida, but do not know how to go about it, and do not have the knowledge.
    I would love to learn from your expertise, so that I can help others in my community spread the knowledge our Father provides through sowing and reaping, while at the same time helping to feed those who cannot feed themselves.

    Are there times after March 21st that you will be teaching the basic class?
    Thank you for your response,
    Katy
