We focus on Friendship & Community because if you tend to a farmer well, you will… Watch Hope Grow
Farmers across the US, Canada, and in New Zealand may have no idea how much support they could have in a moment’s notice. When trouble hits, without any support, it’s easy to feel isolated, alone, and helpless. No one who works as hard as a farmer deserves to ever be stranded without Hope.
We offer support to farmers across the US, Canada, and New Zealand when they need it most by turning Compassion into Action.
Sometimes “support” looks like rebuilding fences or cleaning barns. It may look like a friendly conversation or introducing them to a new friend who also knows what life’s like on the farm. Many times, it’s getting on our knees and praying for God to come rescue the sick, the lost, and the hurting.
We believe, “If you tend to a farmer well, you will watch Hope grow.”
We’re looking for volunteers who are ready to:
1 Bring Jesus
We cannot bring lasting Hope if we do not trust the Master of Hope, Jesus.
2 Bring Work Gloves
Love requires action. We put in real time and effort and are not afraid to get messy.
3 Bring “The Farm”
We give all we’ve got and make every effort to relate to life on a farm.
Volunteers can expect to do these every day:
1 Pray for Others
Partner with what God is already doing in another’s life.
2 Lend a Hand
Be ready to pitch in wherever help is needed most.
3 Be a Friend
Smile, listen, and genuinely care for the one in front of you.
The Pastor’s Piece – May 15, 2022
With the advent of the Internet and the smartphone and everything in between, I enjoy going online and watching farmers at work in different parts of our country. These farmers take a camera with them everywhere they go and record their days’ activities. Simple things like hauling corn to the elevator, sorting cows, pumping the manure pit, or working a field becomes entertainment. It’s basically all the same work, just different. I don’t really have a desire to carry a camera with me everywhere I go recording, editing, and posting my day’s activities, but I don’t mind giving you a glimpse into my day by writing it down on paper. So here is a glimpse into a typical day in my life.
The Pastor’s Piece – May 8,2022
Recently, I officiated at a funeral for a child who died suddenly. I’m sharing part of the message from that service in today’s column.
This is a difficult day. We all want to help, but none of us knows what to do. So we pray. But we don’t even know how to pray.
