Bright and early our day begins with prayer at morning chapel. Then at 10:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., our prayer bell rings calling us to pause whatever we are doing and center ourselves in prayer. There is a time of prayer at our communal lunches and dinners. Once a month our day starts with a Taizé Service. There is time for private prayer whether we are taking a walk through the orchards, kneeling in the privacy of our homes or sitting under one of the majestic trees on the farm. Some of the retreats we offer focus on prayer. Koinonia Farm is a place of prayer. You are welcome to visit us and join us during these times. Or perhaps you will want time and space to pray alone here. For you who cannot travel to South Georgia, we invite you to send us your prayer requests, petitions, intercessions and prayers of thanksgiving.
Thank you for praying for us. We pray for you.
Andrew Reese Thornburgh
Our friend and former intern Andrew passed away unexpectedly in January 2017. He is dearly missed by family, friends, and all those who knew him. Please pray for those who grieve his passing and for his soul to find peace.
Melissa Daniel, Alanah Rempel & Brandon Goober
These three fine people finished up their time with us at the end of 2016. Melissa has moved to New Mexico where she hopes to attend college in a year or so. Alanah and Brandon were married at Koinonia last June. They are making their way to Colorado where they will be working at a retreat center once owned by Alanah’s grandparents. We will miss them. Join us in praying for them as they take this next step in life.
We don’t spray harmful chemicals on our trees, but rather use a biological method that infuses life into the soil, trees and leaves. It is an experiment because many of our orchard’s trees are a variety planted back in the 60s that are susceptible to a fungus called scab. We hope our experiment yields positive results and that our trees produce an abundant crop year after year. Thank you for your prayers.
