Lillian meets baby chicks!

Hidden Hollows chicks have arrived! We got the call from Peavey Mart in the middle of breakfast this morning. Come pick up your chicks! 5 eager beavers made the trip to town with me and the other two stayed home to finish chores and wash dishes:). We ordered 55, but it seems like they included at least 5 extra! Here are some pictures from this morning:

30 minutes vs. 4 days

Scott is working for a neighbour this year. He was tilling about 5 minutes away yesterday. When he finished up he asked our neighbour if he could borrow the tractor/tiller to work up one of our fields. The answer was YES! He came home, ate some supper and took Kiersten and Addie with him. When he got back to our property it was Caleb and Sam's turn to ride in the fields.

You can kind of see them if you look closely:).

It took him 30 minutes to clear the field! He figured that it would have taken him about 4 days with the smaller one. We are very thankful for our tractor though! We just praise the Lord for all the time saved by the generosity of a neighbour.

May we all remember to reach out and seek to be a blessing to those around us in the days and years ahead!

Missionary Focus

This week I'd like to focus on the Gbendah Family in Liberia. They recently came back to Canada to raise more support and are looking forward to going back very soon! We are thankful that the Reimers have been over in Liberia carrying on with the work. There is a shipment of Bibles, Hymn Books and Medical Supplies for their new Medical Clinic needing to be sent over. The cost for that is $9,000. Praying that the Lord would supply those funds and allow us to have a part in it, as well.

The Gbendahs were one of the last missionaries to leave Liberia during the Ebola crisis. They really wanted to stay, but they were told that they needed to leave the country. It's been amazing to see how the Lord is opening up spiritual doors in that country. We look forward to reading their prayer letters and seeing how God is blessing!
