Alex Wathum

Farm Manager

Alex is the farm manager at our farm in Mayuge. He oversees all operations on the farm and came to work with us immediately after purchasing the farm in early 2015. We met Alex while doing evangelism and discipleship in a village outside Jinja in 2014. Alex was a security guard making 1/3rd of what is considered a “livable wage”. When we were praying about a farm manager, God kept telling us it should be Alex. We were confused because he was a security guard and not a farmer. We finally asked Alex if he had any farm experience and he told us that he was a farmer in the northwestern part of Uganda before becoming a security guard to try to provide for his wife and four children. We moved him to the farm and he has been an excellent, faithful manager! We really wouldn’t be able to run our farm effectively without Alex!
