Harvest Time Farm Shows
Husker Harvest Days
The Husker Harvest Days ran from September 14 through the 16th in Grand Island, Nebraska. Point man for the show was Dave Ferris from Central City, NE. Working the show were Dave Ferris, Jeff Goss, Gary Overly, Paul Stachura, Andy Faeh, Al Hirschfield, Ron Niedermeyer, Bill Crilly, Jerry Miller, Terry Elliot, Lyndon and Sue Ochsner and their son Jeremiah and grandsons Cordell, Boaz, and Gideon.
From the show’s official website:
“The World’s Largest Totally Irrigated Working Farm Show
Husker Harvest Days connects farmers with agriculture’s leading companies, hosting hundreds of exhibitors displaying the latest farm equipment, tractors, combines and farm implements; seed and crop protection products; and many additional farm supplies and services.”
The Fellowship of Christian Farmers fits in nicely here, offering free walking sticks, and, more importantly, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and the Words of Salvation.
From Area Leader Jeff Goss:
“Well over a thousand kids were bussed in and brought in from all over Nebraska and Kansas to the Husker Harvest Days, and many came into our tent to hear the Gospel. At times there were so many kids inside of our tent being witnessed to, that we even had FCFI men outside our tent to share the Gospel with groups of kids and people.”
“So many kids and people were hearing the Gospel message at our tent, and many were praying to receive Christ that I believe Nebraska will never be the same. I believe a revival began here and will spread to the nation and world. I also encouraged the kids we prayed with to go and share their faith with the people that they are around.”
Ozark Fall Farm Fest
The Ozark Fall Farm Fest was October 1 – 3 at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Missouri. Point man for the show was FCFI Area Leader Jeff Goss from St. Louis, MO. Working the show were Jeff Goss, George Noble, Mike Weaver, Stanley Bryan, Dennis and Karen Hembrough.
From FCFI Area Leader Jeff Goss:
“Once again we had a great harvest of souls saved on FFA day as huge numbers of kids came pouring into our booth for hours to hear the Gospel message and to pray with us and receive New Testaments and other Gospel literature. I believe revival is happening right before our eyes.”
“For many years now our booth has been very popular at the Ozark Fall Farm Fest with hundreds of kids and adults waiting in line to receive the free gifts and to hear the Gospel message. A couple people even shared with us their memories of coming to our booth in the past.”
