You may have initially been confused by the title of this post, being that it doesn’t really sound biblically accurate or “spiritual”, and that’s honestly what I thought also, until that’s what Jesus called me.
This past May, I had the honor and privilege of being able to travel and minister in Peru alongside World Gospel Mission with other Ohio Christian University students. One of the ministries where we worked several jobs was with Pastor Americo at a youth out reach/after school program called Corazon (and for all of you Spanish majors out there, you’ll know that means “heart” in Spanish😁). One project in particular that we did while we were there was to fill and plant 5000 seeded dirt bags to plant fruit trees around the mountain in order that the ministry could grow and sell the fruit for an extra profit. However, an interesting fact about these dirtbags was that the fertilizer came from what was known as “Pigeon Poop Rock” (sorry if that grosses anyone out). There was an island off of the coast somewhere where there was this big rock that pigeons wood land on and “do their business” and the locals would scrape it off of the rock and sell it as fertilizer to other surrounding countries FUN FACT.
