A local family from rural Wabash County is moving to Malawi, Africa, to spread the seed of agriculture and God.
As early as June 1, Austin Carrothers, his wife Sarah, and three children Jayden, 7, Allis, 6, and Wyatt, 3, will be leaving behind their friends, family, home, and luxuries, such as electricity, to serve God and help develop sustainable farming in the bush region of Malawi.
The family, in conjunction with Gospelink, will be assisting Harvest Hope Homes, housing facilities that help children left behind by their families for various reasons, such as lack of food or medical complications.
