Farm Progress Show 2017 – Decatur, IL

“This is where producers from all over gather, meet, and learn. This is where major manufacturers choose to roll out their newest offerings. This is where Ag families take a break from their daily routine to immerse themselves in the wider Ag community. This is where tradition and business have come together for 65 years. This is where we celebrate agriculture.”

The Fellowship tent has always been an oasis for farm show visitors on a hot summer day. This was the first year in many that we did not provide music in the tent. But we do offer shade and a chair, and, more importantly, a Gospel presentation using the Wordless Walking Stick.

The format for farm shows includes a tent set up with several circles of chairs. Farm show guests are invited in to receive a free walking stick in exchange for listening to a short presentation of the Gospel using the Wordless Walking Stick. It is always amazing to see what the Lord will do at these farm shows. Visitors are polite and listen intensely to the Gospel presentation, with many accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior.
