Angus Buchan or “Uncle Angus” as he’s affectionately known is a child of God. A farmer by profession and evangelist based in South Africa, his life story is what inspired the movie Faith Like Potatoes.

He grew up with a dream of becoming a preacher but forgot about along the way. That dream was revived when he moved from Zambia to South Africa where he has been ever since.

After rededicating his life and family to Christ he began ministering to his farm workers and his ministry grew. Every year he holds a Mighty Men’s Conference to minister to men, calling them to be men that live according to God’s standards.

Here are 22 of his quotes from his experiences walking with God:

  1. “There is power in prayer. When men work, they work. But when men pray, God works.” ~ Angus Buchan
  2. “Peter Marshall, the great evangelical preacher, once said that we need ‘faith like potatoes’ – plain, simple, real faith that will sustain us in our everyday lives. Whenever I pick up a potato I remember those words. That’s the kind of faith I want. When we have faith and act on it, God will come through for us, no matter what our circumstances. God is King!” ~ Angus Buchan
  3. “If you allow one little sin to creep into your life, and think it doesn’t matter, it will grow and grow until it affects your whole spiritual life, deflecting you from your primary aim of serving God.” ~ Angus Buchan

  7. “If we want our family lives to conform to God’s will, Jesus must be our priority, our focal point, in our home as well as in our ministries.” ~ Angus Buchan
  8. “We all learned valuable lessons from that crop. The Lord showed us the importance of walking by faith, and not by sight, of trusting him unconditionally and never giving up.” ~ Angus Buchan
  9. “Faith is a day-to-day lifestyle and experience of Jesus Christ. That’s what we are experiencing at Shalom, when we plant in faith – even in the dust – and trust in him for the miracles of his love.” ~ Angus Buchan
  10. “The father is the head of the home; the mother is the heart of the home; the children are the reward, the joy and the life of the home.” ~ Angus Buchan
