2017 Summer Speakers and Bonton Farms

2017 Summer Speakers and Bonton Farms

Over the month of July, I had the privilege of showcasing several people who are doing tremendous work in the city of Dallas. We centered our Summer Speaker Series on the theme of God at Work in Our City.  Rev. Dr. Ted Campbell introduced us to the "Five Waves Over Dallas" that highlighted the various immigrant groups that have made up the fabric of our city over the centuries. 

Equally inspiring in telling the story of our city, Joli Robinson drew on her experiences as a manager in the Community Relations office for the Dallas Police Department to talk about how God continues to call her to "step out of the boat" in faith and courage, just as Jesus did for those first disciples in the Gospels. Her stories of providing support to her team after the police shooting on July 7, 2016 were particularly moving. It became abundantly clear to all of us how God is working through her to bring light and hope as she bridges disparate communities in Dallas. 

Perhaps most enlightening were the presentations by Daron Babcock of Bonton Farms and Aelicia "Chocolate" Watson of Redeemed Women Ministries. Tucked beside two highways and a water reservoir just southeast of Downtown Dallas is a neighborhood even lifelong Dallasites have never heard of. Today, however, Bonton Farms and Redeemed Women are putting the Bonton neighborhood on the map and raising awareness about the needs of this place that is proving fertile for new life.

Bonton is a South Dallas community where 85% of men have been to prison, poverty is rampant, and jobs are scarce. Bonton is also a “Food Desert” where access to healthy foods is non-existent. The USDA defines a Food Desert as a geographical area where at least 500 people and/or at least 33% of the census population live more than one mile from a supermarket or large grocery store. The nearest grocery store to Bonton is a three-hour round trip bus ride. 

When Daron Babcock felt God urging him to leave his lucrative business and get involved in transforming lives in Bonton, he had no idea he would be led to move into the neighborhood and transform the land into a thriving garden. The Mission of Bonton Farms is, "to be an agricultural intervention to restore lives, create jobs and ignite hope in the most forgotten and neglected neighborhoods for the most marginalized and vulnerable people." 

I encourage you to take a tour of Bonton Farms and get to know Redeemed Women Ministries. The work they are doing in the name of Christ is truly transformational. I will be organizing trips to Bonton in the church bus in late August and early September. If you would like to sign up, please contact me! 

And thank you to each one of you who help me see God at work in our city on a daily basis!
