On Easter Sunday, 2003, I was an invited guest of the Prime Minister of Tanzania. We were putting together the final details of a Pioneer-sponsored pilot study. The idea was to introduce the “one cow, one Hectare, one year” strategy to African farmers, work with them to achieve greater success, and then figure out how to expand it. We’d signed up dozens of farmers, and were excited about our prospects.
Over a cold Kilimanjaro beer the Prime Minister blessed the project. I had a corporate sponsor, willing farmers, and the approval of a powerful dignitary.
Here’s a video from my host and Member of Parliament Lazaro Nyalandu’s village at a special event after church.
The music on Easter Sunday never sounded better. Here are two more YouTube videos of the service. Video 1 Video 2
