Zambia on Fire

It is that time of year when all the farmers burn their field to prepare for
the summer planting. It is crazy to be just driving along and see a massive
field up in flames. So far no major forest fires but it is very surprising
that it doesn't happen. This fire was precariously close to the power line
pole. One of the first rules for Farming God's Way is to not burn the
fields because you are destroying the valuable nutrients that are in the
soil. But, because it is so embedded in culture and history, it takes faith
to believe and live differently than your fathers and forefathers. Hmm, I
sense a sermon illustration coming on...
