The Agriculture Manager in the Malawi United Methodist Church, Lester Mhone has asked the conference to employ two farm assistants to help him in operating the church farm in Mchinji.
The development erupted at the beginning of the first session of the church's Provisional Annual Conference held at Baptist Theological Seminar in Lilongwe on July 6, 2012.
Speaking when he was asked to elaborate on Agriculture report, Mhone said that the church can benefit from the farm if funding and potential workers are provided in time.

Responding to the development, the Conference Office Manager, Hugo Ngwira agreed that the farm needs some individuals to work with Mhone.
He added that there is hope that one of the two students who are being trained in agriculture in Lilongwe will be recruited to help.
In delayed funds, Ngwira stated that the ministry involves many stages such as proposal confirmation for the funds to released from donors which sometimes takes time.
Ngwira advised that plans are in progress to have tangible projects on the farm to fulfill the manager's vision and dreams.
Agriculture is the major project which helps pastors in the MUMC provisional Conference to have enough food for their families through farm inputs implementations.
