Farmer Andy and his sister Fanny are enjoying the harvest season.  They are resting here beside a John Deere tractor with a lovely painting in the background by Kathy Brown.  She and her husband, Bill, are busy this summer with the Fellowship of Christian Farmers ministry, sharing the bead story.  Many people are hurting and ready to hear that the blood of Jesus can cleanse and give us new life in Him.


“Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields;
for they are white (ripe) already to harvest. 
And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal:
that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.  John 4:35, 36


“The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few:
pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest,
that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.”  Luke 10:2

This is our friend Heather Kimbriel:

In 2011, she was invited to join a prayer team that would be traveling to the capital cities of :

Santiago, Chile

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Montevideo, Uruguay

She, in turn, invited Penny to go along as well!

What a neat opportunity to visit these distant countries and to do it on a mission of prayer!




The Operation Capital City folks arranged the trip to include a several day visit to each capital city.  As the team toured they met pastors, leaders, and citizens, and prayed together for these five subjects:

  • Government Centers
  • Education Centers
  • Marketplace Centers
  • Media Centers
  • Spiritual Centers


I have arranged several slideshows here from the photos Heather took from the different countries they visited:

  Santiago, Chile


Now on to…

Buenos Aires, Argentina



The Presidential Palace is called the “Pink House”.




The Argentina slide show:



Now in…

Montevideo, Uruguay



 Some beautiful architecture, and a lush garden.




The prayer team leaders share a laugh with little Penny.




The Uruguay slideshow…




Farewell, beautiful lands in the southern hemisphere!  Thank you for your hospitality.

May God watch over you, and hold you in His Almighty Hand.

“If my people, which are called by My Name,
shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My Face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from Heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 
 II Chronicles 7:14
