The last three weeks have flown by and our project here is complete. Some more SOWER couples will be coming in next week and we will be departing soon. What a great team we had here and we feel like our mission was accomplished. Each couple comes with their own unique talents and giftings. It is such a delight to see how God assembles each team. Our General Leader couple were such a success in guiding this ship. Wendy planned some really fun times for the ladies and for the couples too. It was not all fun and games though as we really worked hard to do our best for the Lord and for the ministry here.
Some couples are leaving tomorrow and some on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Some are going home to check on their own livestock and some are on their way to their next project. One couple is full time in their RV and one has been on the road 16 months and will have completed their 25th project by the time they arrive home. That is the wonderful thing about SOWERS is that you can do it most any way you would like to.
The farmer and I are ready to get back to our farm and see what is happening on the home front. I have several groups of girlfriends I need to have lunch with and catch up on their last month. A neighbor needs the farmer to drive a truck. We will have cousin camp for our 13 grandchildren in a couple of weeks so we won’t be bored.
Iowa has treated us well. The weather has been beautiful, the camp staff delightful. The new friends are so very special. There is nothing like sharing work and life for a few weeks together on a mission. It is hard to leave but home is calling.
