And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.

romans 8:28

In his early 20's, Jeremy Colvin moved to Northern Zambia, to a plot of land that would later become Choshen Farm. There in the rural village of Fimpulu, Jeremy met his wife, Bethany, a Peace Corps volunteer from Ithaca, New York. 

Together, the Colvins have spent the past several years pursuing the mission of Choshen Farm: to impact rural Zambia for Christ through relational encouragement, community development, and the building of the local church. Here's how the story goes:
