We focus on Prayer Needs 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.

After reading about the happenings taking place at Martintown Community Church over the last several months, several of the faithful readers of this column have taken the scenic drive to Martintown, Wisconsin to visit us on Sunday morning. Some have even come back. One person referred to us as “a spot in the road.” That’s a pretty accurate description of Martintown, Wisconsin and we’ve adopted that phrase as our own. We’re a tiny little town sitting peacefully on a hill overlooking the Pecatonica River in Green County, Wisconsin. The town was founded in 1850 by Nathaniel Martin, who just happens to be the great, great, great grandfather of my wife, Cindy. It was important to Nathaniel that the people of the Martintown community have a formal place to worship, and in 1879, at the age of 63, he and one of his sons built the original structure of the church building for a total cost of $1200. To this day, we still worship in that same building.

We’re remodeling a house. By remodeling, I mean getting it ready to move into. Last week the story was about changing the pump in the well and successfully getting life-giving water to the house. The house has sat empty for a few years. Exactly how many years, no one seems to know, although I know someone knows. This week, the story continues.
