The acronym P.U.S.H has often been used to indicate “Pray Until Something Happens.“ My Rwandan friend, Héritier Kagabika, is familiar with this phrase and he is definitely a man of prayer!
Because of his solid training and broad experience in agriculture, along with his desire to help others, he created an organization called WePush.
WePush stands for: We “Plant Until Something Happens.“ Héritier uses agriculture as a vehicle to bring people together. WePush is working to strengthen Rwandan agriculture services by encouraging gardening and selling vegetables and fruits to urban consumers. They also provide advisors on every aspect of agriculture: land preparation, planting crops and applying fertilization, irrigation, post-harvesting handling and marketing. Their professional training events enhance knowledge and make farmers and students more competent for the global agriculture market.
Héritier says, “I continue to dream up ways to bring everyone together for celebrations on the farm and beyond. That’s what we do at WePush, but we are nothing without our Lord .”
There is a strong scriptural precedent for Héritier‘s perspective. In 1 Corinthians 3:7, Saint Paul was frustrated because there were factions forming around different spiritual leaders. Some wanted to identify with one leader, others wanted to align with a different leader. Paul wanted them to see that it was all about God and He provides the harvest.
Paul wrote, “So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.”
God causes the growth.
Whether in the fields, or in the lives of people around us, God produces the fruit.
Our calling is to keep planting. Even when it seems difficult, and there is no apparent fruit, we plant until something happens.
How will you invest in someone’s life this week? Can you “plant” a kind word? An inspirational thought? A practical application of a Godly principle?
