I’d like to introduce you to my cousin Andy.
Here we are hunting eggs together in the barn.
He loves tractors and it thrilled him to sit on our John Deere 3020.
Maybe he’ll be a mechanic when he grows up.
Ha! A little mechanic that fits into the tool box!
Dreamin’ of someday….
In the meantime, he has been adopted by Mr. Bill Brown of the Fellowship of Christian Farmers International to help with his ministry of sharing the gospel bead story at farm shows and fairs.
This picture was taken last week at the Farm Show in Hamburg, New York.
Bill Brown and his wife Kathy have worked for 14 years with The Fellowship of Christian Farmers. He is the Area Coordinator covering all the New England States, and New York. He travels a great deal in Canada getting the ministry started there, and also works in the South. He coordinates mission trips to ECHO and Reality Ranch in Florida each fall, and helps with FCFI disaster relief.
When at fairs and farm shows, the Fellowship of Christian Farmers sets up a booth where they pass out these walking sticks with the Gospel Beads attached as they share the precious story of God’s Love.
The card says:
Gold Bead – Heaven Revelation 21:21b
Dark Bead – Sin Romans 3:23 and 6:23
Red Bead – Blood of Christ Romans 5:8 and 1 Peter 3:18a
White Bead – Purity / Forgiveness John 1:12 and Romans 10:9
Green Bead – Spiritual Growth Matthew 18:20 and 1 John 1:7
You should check out the FCF web site for more information about them – www.fcfi.org.
On the way home from the Farm Show, guess where Pa Dart stopped! Oh, yeah!!
These are Amazing Donuts! After sampling them all, I still couldn’t decide…
Maybe I’ll settle for this one.
Oh, so yummy! But oh, so Big, I think I can only eat half!!
It was a beautiful wintery day in western New York, here is a picture at sunset.
Blessings to you as you begin your new work, Farmer Andy!
We look forward to hearing more about your adventures in the future!
