Bountiful Plant Ministries
A survey trip to Guatemala in February of 2007 created a desire in Ed van Hoven and Ron van der Hengst to start an agricultural business patterned after the model of their grandfather’s, the late Aart van Wingerden, founder of DOUBLE HARVEST. The profits of the business would supply monetary needs of indigenous spiritual ministries. Operating under the banner of Bountiful Plant Ministries in partnership with Estuardo Arriaga, a tomato growing greenhouse was constructed in the locale of Jocotillo, situated about 45 minutes from Guatemala City. Adjacent to the greenhouse facility construction of a home base for World Reach Guatemala has commenced. The base of operations will include a church, clinic and school.
