Matthew and Karli VonHerbulis, along with their children Hallelujah and Shepherd, are serving in Rwanda . Matthew works for the local church developing rural communities through investments in Education, Nutrition, and Evangelism in a ministry called Hope On a Thousand Hills. Specifically, he directs the Agriculture program focused on restoring dignity to farming by teaching it as an important ministry of the Church.
Through a hands on “Agri-Faith” field school, Matthew is training farmers in sustainable agriculture, agribusiness, nutrition, hygiene, and environmental stewardship, then sending those farmers out as catalysts for economic, environmental, nutritional and spiritual growth in their local villages.
Karli will be serving women in pregnancy and childbirth as a certified doula. Karli is being trained specifically as a birth and bereavement doula to be able to support mothers not only in childbirth, but also in processing grief, as the average mother in Rwanda has experienced the loss of a child.
