SOWER Roundup and Friendships

Texas Roundup of SOWERS in Big Sandy, Texas

Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you; spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.

The SOWER Texas Roundup was held at the Alert Academy in Big Sandy, TX just before we headed home from our assignment there. Sixteen other camper couples joined us for three days of fun, games , instruction and fellowship. SOWER stories of projects and experiences filled each moment. New friendships and connections were carved. Acquaintances became true friends and talented people were discovered. These retired couples join forces each month to serve the Lord God in many and varied ways. The mission is the same; make a difference in some way in the lives of those they come in contact.

Jelly Beans and a Board

Gail Fieler had some great game ideas and everyone participated. Peeps were shot with rubber bands, jelly beans were balanced on a popsicle stick and rolled down a board. A talent show was enjoyed by all. One couple had a hole in their bucket!

The SOWER couples also collated bound booklets of the book of John and of Romans. We were able in two hours to collate 1400 booklets. These books of scripture will be sent to the Philippines. Some were collated earlier in the Thai language to go to Thailand. Fertile fields will receive these seeds from this group of SOWERS.

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.

Following this wonderful Roundup for SOWERS we embarked on the journey home. Our hearts were warmed by new friendships and experiences. One woman that I hadn’t met before became an instant heart sister in the Lord. We were kindred spirits. Praising the Lord for this opportunity.
