USA – Harvest Kids, Sept 14, 2019

What a wonderful day of fellowship and celebration for all the work these young people are able to accomplish. We were thankful to have Jenny, from Anacortes, bring our friend, Bishop Anthony Owor, from Uganda to visit with the Harvest Kids for the second time. Many thanks to our servants, Cathy, Linda and Isaac for helping. We only had a few cans to crush because we just recycled 630 pounds the kids had already crushed and we received $159 to go toward their monthly support of the teachers of the Wambuti pygmy primary school in the DRCongo and the Comfort Africa vulnerable children’s ministry in Uganda. After crushing cans, the kids received the good news that along with their bi-weekly donations, we have picked and sold about 4,500 ears of sweet corn that our local farmer friend donated and had raised $1,775 toward the completion of the school. Everything being totaled, they had the $1,818 to finish the primary school in Uganda and almost all the money needed for their donation to the Africa quarterly support. Amazing, as is our custom, the kids let Laura, our first time visitor complete the red in the school thermometer and Melody, who is celebrating her 11th birthday, fill in the quarterly support thermometer. Afterwards, Bishop Anthony spent time with the kids as they asked many questions about children in Africa and about the country itself. They enjoyed a special “Africa” lunch that Linda had prepared, then a special “Job Well Done” ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. The rest of the time the kids made “vision boards” capturing some of the special things in their lives, including some things they would like to accomplish or have in the future. This was a special idea from a co-worker of Isaac’s named Heaven Lee and we really appreciate her sharing that with us.

USA – Looking out after orphans in distress, Sept 10, 2019

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans in their distress…” (James 1:27). We are so thankful to the Harvest Kids that were led to support Pr. Christopher, the Harvest Vision coordinator for northwest Uganda, and his vision to provide a primary school for orphans and other vulnerable children in his community. They had a small group, huddled under a tree (when it wasn’t raining), with a teacher and a blackboard. No desk, no chairs and no school supplies when we first were introduced to them last year. These young people donated enough money and received enough donations for the sweet corn that a local farmer planted for them to help construct the brick 4-classroom and office building, as well as a toilet last fall. This summer they raised enough money to purchase the tin for the roof to protect the brick walls during the rainy season, leaving a balance of $1,818 to finish the doors, windows, plaster and walls. Thanks to everyone, they will celebrate reaching that goal, plus having enough money for their regular donation to support the Comfort Africa, vulnerable children’s ministry in Uganda, and to pay the teachers for the Wambuti pygmy children going to a primary school on Idjwe Island in Lake Kivu in the DRCongo. We invite you to come and bring any young people, whether they have been involved before or not, this Saturday, September 14th, from 10am-12:30pm at the Harvest Home, 9467 Pierce Lane, Sedro Woolley. We will be crushing some of the aluminum cans that have been donated, the kids will count the change and fill in the “thermometer” they have been using to track their progress. We will be having games, a traditional Africa lunch and a special dessert to celebrate the event. We are prayerfully expecting our friend, Bishop Anthony Owor, who is visiting in the USA from Uganda to join us for the morning. We are so thankful for everyone, including the parents and other adults and young people, that have prayed and helped these young people that are making a real difference in the lives of these children that are less fortunate.

USA – Bringing in the harvest, Sept 10, 2019

We are again blessed to know that in August our brothers and sisters shared the gospel in the harvest fields of central Africa and over 5,500 new believers have accepted Jesus and are now on their journey of faith to become true disciples. Every outreach is different and we appreciate praying and supporting their efforts. Last quarter we recognized that some of them were doing this at great sacrifice from their own families and were led to raise our monthly support to four of them which requires additional funds when we send our quarterly support. We are praying that the Holy Spirit will lead our brothers and sisters that can financially help to become monthly donors and help meet that need but we are still waiting for that to come about. We have been able to send the financial support to five of our coordinator’s that will provide a long term sustainable income to meet this need so we can expand the ministry by supporting four more coordinator’s that are ready to begin the ministry in their regions. Presently, we will be $1,500 short of sending the quarterly support and we would appreciate your prayers and support. Donations can be sent to Harvest Vision Ministries, PO Box 733, Sedro Woolley, WA, 98284 on be made on-line at www.harvestvisionministries.org.

USA – Sharing the harvest, Sept 3, 2019

    “When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of the harvest. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 19:9-10)

We are so blessed to have the wonderful sweet corn that was grown for the Harvest Kids to make available for the donations that will help them finish building a school for orphaned and other vulnerable children in northwest Uganda. We are getting close to the end of the harvest and has become our tradition, we make corn available free for those in our neighborhood. Thanks to everyone involved and these two young girls that directed us to those that would be blessed with this harvest. We have just a little more tomorrow and then we will count our blessings and see how close these young people are to realizing their vision to finish the school. “Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds and to be generous and willing to share.” (1 Timothy 6:18)

 

USA – Can you help the kids build this school, Sept 3, 2019

    Hallelujah. We have worked so hard for over a year to finish building the primary school for vulnerable and orphaned children in northwest Uganda on the border of the DRCongo. Last fall, the Harvest Kids raised enough money ($1,570), mostly by picking sweet corn a local farmer planted had donated and selling it, to start the 4-classroom with office and toilet project. Earlier this summer, they raised $470 to get the tin on the roof before the rainy season destroyed the mud bricks the school was made from. These last two months, they have bringing their change to meet the final goal of $1,818 which will finish the school (doors, windows, plaster and floors). They have collected $210. We were blessed to have that same local farmer plant sweet corn again and have collected donations from Walker Motor Works, 9430 State Avenue in Marysville ($604) and the Harvest Home, 9467 Pierce Lane in Sedro Woolley ($581). That is $1,395 leaving only $423. We have a little bit of corn left and we are hoping to pick one more time in a few days and then that will be over. The Harvest Kids meet again on September 14, 10am-12:30pm, 9467 Pierce Lane in Sedro Woolley and will be bringing whatever change they are able to set aside for the project. If you would like to help the kids finish well and get these other less fortunate children into their own school, you could drop off any extra change you have at either location, bring your kids to the to Harvest Kids or donate online at www.harvestvisionministries.org or send a check to Harvest Vision Ministries, PO Box 733, Sedro Woolley, WA. Help these kids to learn it is better to give than receive so they can be true disciples of Jesus Christ.

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and truth.” 1 John 3:16-18   

Africa – August testimonies are coming in, Sept 3, 2019

    What a blessing to support our co-laborers in central Africa with our prayers and financial giving. This is the report that we just received from Pr. Evariste, our coordinator in Burundi.

“We have done evangelization for 25 days in 50 communes in 10 provinces. We had 100 young people join us during the outreaches. 3,500 got saved and 816 were baptized and 30 families forgave each other.

We praise God for all things that we have done is by His grace.

Continue to pray for us.

We need new equipment; wireless mics and piano.

Thank you so much for your love and support.

Be blessed

Pastor Habonimana Evariste

Bujumbura, Burundi”

Many thanks to sister Martha who invited us to take the Harvest Kids games to the Sakuma migrant camp with the City of Refuge church family to share the love of Jesus with the people that live there. The Harvest Kids made a variety of games: miniature golf, bean bag toss, ring toss and hot wheels racing to use for outreach a few years ago and we are excited to see them making a difference. Martha and different groups have been going to the local migrant camps for years and we are encouraged by her faithfulness and the compassion she has for these families and especially the children. The afternoon was filled with hot dogs, popcorn, drinks and watermelon; games, including soccer and basketball; face-painting and giving out backpacks and school supplies to the children. What a blessing to see the adults and young people that are willing to pray and sacrifice other things they could be doing to be the hands and feet of Jesus to these people that are constantly moving from one place to another to work and care for their families. They provide a great service to the communities they transition through by helping harvest many different crops that are important to our lives in this country. They are definitely deserving of this honor and respect and we thank everyone that supports sharing the love of Jesus with people that live and serve in a lifestyle that is different than the one has chosen for us. We pray for those in this community that have began a relationship with Jesus Christ through these outreaches and pray that those that have not will be prompted to open their hearts and receive the free gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.

USA – Harvest Kids with Child’s Evangelism Fellowship, Aug 24, 2019

Another beautiful day to sell corn and crush cans with these incredible young people that are willing to come loving Jesus and willing to sacrifice to serve others. Real examples of young people that are truly desiring to become His disciples. We are thankful to everyone that supports these young people and those that stop by to drop off their aluminum cans. They are collecting their change to complete the 4 classroom primary school in northwest Uganda and they are also asking donations for the sweet corn that a local farmer has generously planted for these young people to harvest and complete this project. They had collected $180 toward the final amount needed to complete the project, $1,818. Today they collected another $30 and were able to add the first money from the corn – another $192. That is a whopping $402 with only $1,414 to go. We were blessed to have Corbin and Caleb come for their first visit and it was fun to see them (and their mother) put their handprints on the wall and fill out a birthday card for the HK birthday board. Lynn, from Child’s Evangelism Fellowship, shared the love of Jesus with her usual inter-active ministry that includes songs, scripture, stories, games with prizes and prayer. It is always a blessing to hear these young people reciting verses that the Lord has prompted you to commit to memory. Today, it was, the story of Isaiah when he was over-whelmed by the presence of God and committed himself to the Lord by saying, “Here I am, send me!” As the summer family activities become less and school begins, we are hoping to see many of the young people beginning to attend again.

USA – Smokey Point Farmer’s Market, Aug 23, 2019

    Thanks to Jamie that invited the Harvest Kids to sell corn at the farmer’s market at the Tractor Supply Company on 172nd Street in Smokey Point on Friday, August 23rd, from 2-6pm. There is still one more on this next Friday, August 30th. We were blessed to have all those that donated for the sweet corn know that they are helping build a primary school for vulnerable and orphaned children in northwest Uganda. The kids received enough donations to start the 4 classroom school last year and recently sent the money to install the metal roofing on the school. They are now working toward the remaining $1,818 to complete the school: doors, windows, plaster and floors. We met some people that we knew from other ministry work and others that have visited the used car dealership that was started to help support the ministry long term, Walker Motor Works, 9430 State Avenue, in Marysville which is operated by Blake & Kylee Walker. Their two girls, Madilyn and Hailey, started Harvest Kids six years ago when they were only 5 and 3 years old. The Lord blessed us with no rain during the day and we met people from Africa and others that had visited or have a desire to go some day. Lot’s of fun and we really enjoyed the different vendors and the variety of unique items that they brought to make available to those that came to visit and shop.                

USA – 7th Annual Harvest Fest, Aug 18, 2019

    Thanks to everyone that helped with making this gathering such a wonderful blessing to everyone, including those that were at the park and weren’t aware that they would be welcomed to join with us. This was the 7th year we have had the Harvest Fest at the Riverfront Park in Sedro Woolley. Thanks for Armando who helped get the right equipment together for the sound and Linda, Isaac and Nick for helping set up. The Harvest Kids helped load up the games the night before. We were blessed to have not only the Harvest Kids games, including ring & bean bag toss, hot wheels racing, miniature golf and the Slip n Slide but also the use of the children’s playground that is available to the public at Riverfront Park. Thanks to Lyman Baptist for loaning us the popcorn and snow cone machine and for Pam and Cathy for helping with those refreshments. Thanks to the city of Sedro Woolley which allows us to rent, not only the covered pavilion with it’s amenities, but also the beautiful stage with its view of the mountains and with the Skagit River in the background. We were blessed to have the City of Refuge worship team from Burlington, Matt Audette and the Circle of Friends from Ferndale and Marcelle & Mayrah to share their gifts and passion for worshiping the Lord through music. Lot’s of testimonies and invitations to receive the gospel message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Thanks to everyone that came and shared with one another and especially for the parents and other adults who helped ensure the kids were safe and enjoyed this beautiful day that the Lord gave to us. It was a blessing to over-hear people sharing their testimonies of their journey of faith, praying for one another and encouraging one another as individuals and groups to bring the message of hope to those in our families and communities. “Lord Jesus, we pray that we will continue to be passionate and unselfish about seeking the lost with the message of the eternal life that You have made available to us and to others through our obedience and faith to ‘deny ourselves, pick up our cross daily and follow You’. Help us to open our eyes and look to the fields for the harvest and pray that God will send even more workers that are willing to ‘serve rather than to be served.’ Let us live and breathe to bring You glory. In Jesus Name, Amen.”       

USA – Grandy Creek Grocery car wash, Aug 17, 2019

Thanks to these young people that were willing to spend a part of this beautiful Saturday to do a car wash to help support the many co-laborers we supportin the harvest fields locally, in Mexico and central
Africa. We didn’t have as many cars as we would have liked, but we appreciate those that stopped and let these kids perform their labor of love. Thanks to Mike and Pam Westberg for setting this up and for our friends at the Grandy Creek Grocery in Birdsview, WA for giving us this privilege. These young people are great at making the most of any and every situation and were able to pick over a gallon of blackberries which allowed them (with Grandma Linda’s help) make a great blackberry cobbler. We enjoyed that after going out to the Harvest Kid greenhouse at Wayne & Rebecca’s home to hand out flyers for the Child’s Evangelism Fellowship 5-day club which will be at that location on Mon-Fri, Aug 19-23 from 1-3pm. After an evening skating and meeting with other Christian friends (who happened? to be skating that evening as well), the kids enjoyed that fine blackberry cobbler with a small scoop of ice cream. We are so looking forward to the Harvest Fest today at Riverfront Park in Sedro Woolley, making new friends and sharing the love of Jesus with them and looking forward to the fellowship, music and kid’s games.

Africa – Enlarging the territory, we need your help, Aug 17, 2019

    It is was with incredible joy that we shared about the 6,343 people that accepted Jesus last month in Central Africa. A blessed harvest from our faithful co-laborers that coordinated these outreaches. Pr. Martin, the director of the ministry in Africa, has just informed us that the Lord has provided us the workers that can serve communities around Mbale in east Uganda and between Mubende and Ft. Portal in west Uganda. Although, we have been searching for someone that can serve especially in western Uganda we were not able to find someone that felt called to serve all the existing church families in the region and not just their own church family or denomination. We will be needing to provide sound and video equipment, generator, phone and the remained of items needed to help the Church reach and teach new believers in communities in their region. That costs is about $3,500. The highest recurring costs for successfully completing the missions is the transport required. We are in need of $150/month for each coordinator on a consistent basis to fulfill that need. We are in need of monthly supporters that could help us. Please pray for these areas and if possible, donate to help. $25, $50 or maybe the Lord might lead you or your church or para-ministry to provide for the entire monthly support for even one of these new coordinators. The daily sacrifices these co-laborers and their families are willing to make to reach the lost with the truth of the gospel in their regions is evidence enough to confirm our assurance of their dedication to the great commission that Jesus has given unto us.

USA – The crazy days of summer, Aug 10, 2019

    Somehow, the Harvest Kids ministry, Back to School Blessing at the Skagit Valley College and the Skagit County Fair all fall on the same day and at the same time. It is great to witness so many being involved in these different outreaches. Many thanks to Cathy, Veronica and Wayne for helping the young people that came to Harvest Kids and crushed cans and gathered their coins to help build a school for vulnerable children in northwest Uganda. It is encouraging to meet young people that are truly led to learn to serve rather than be served. A miracle considering we are born takers but have to be born again to become givers. Thanks to all the believers that organized the different aspects of the Back to School Blessing at the Skagit Valley College. School supplies, wonderful worship, hot dogs, games, clothing and Child’s Evangelism Fellowship sharing the good news of the gospel. Harvest Vision was blessed again this year to be in a booth next to the Child’s Evangelism Fellowship team at the Skagit County Fair. We are always encouraged to share about the ministry locally, in Mexico and the different countries in central Africa and to hear fellow believers share about the many different ways in which God is directing them in the harvest fields that they have been called to. Thanks to everyone that choose to live for Christ and to bring the good news to the hurting and lost in our community and throughout the world.                

Africa – How can they believe if they have not heard, Aug 12, 2019

      “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.’” (Romans 10:14-15)

    We are thankful to our Father in heaven and to those who have been led by the Spirit to help send these workers into the harvest fields of central Africa. Whether it is the jungles of the DRCongo or the desert sands of South Sudan or the lake shore of Lake Victoria, most of these people live with no power, no clean water, no medical facilities or the amenities that much of the world takes for granted. We are blessed to be in partnership with these co-laborers that are empowered by Holy Spirit and allow their faith and calling to face these difficult and sometimes life-threatening circumstances to bring the good news of God’s love to the people in these areas. In the month of July, with the prayers and financial support of the body of Christ in the USA, these champions of the faith coordinated 31 outreaches and were witness to the Father’s love compelling 6,343 lost souls to come into His waiting and loving arms through the message of the life, death and resurrection of our Savior, Lord and King, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We are praying for an increase in those that might be led to help support even more coordinators that are waiting for the sound and video equipment, prayers and financial support they need to move into even more of these remote areas. What a blessing to minister through the ups and downs of my everyday life knowing that by making some financial sacrifices someone is receiving the free gift of eternal life every 8-10 minutes and there is more rejoicing over each one than over anything else in heaven. We thank God for the privilege of being even a small part of these miracles that truly “shine like stars in the universe”. (Philippians 2:15).               

USA – Kellilynn’s Spiritual Recover Center & Eagle Cliff Community Church, Curlew, Aug 5, 2019

What a wonderful day of fellowship and ministry with my co-pilot, Chuck Dralle. We left at 4am to drive over to Curlew, WA, to visit with Pr. John Seaman at Kellilynn’s Spiritual Recovery Center along the Canadian border. Surreal to be in this beautiful country with all it’s wildlife and to see the incredible relationship that John brings to this community, especially those that are struggling to appreciate that the purpose in all this creation is that everything that has been created is to lead humankind to understand how much God desires a relationship with each of us. We had a great day and are blessed to know that God has provided a “loan” that will help John build the septic system and drill the water well that will provide the foundation to further grow the ministry. If anyone would like to help repay the loan, ($160/mo for 48 months), you can send donations to Harvest Vision Ministries and we can get this paid off. Along the way, there are many other much needed items and work needed to further establish the ministry. We were blessed to visit Pr. Mike & Sonja and the Eagle Cliff Community church family where John has been attending. They are long-time friends and supporters of Harvest Vision Ministries and we were able to make a presentation on the spiritual warfare that is being unleashed against our families in our communities, the state and our nation. Somehow, we ended up with a load of kindling to support Linda’s smore ministry at the Harvest Home and a kitten for Mike & Pam Westberg’s grandchildren. During the late night drive back to Sedro Woolley, we had this kitten jumping from the top of the dash onto either Chuck or me. It was like having a living and moving bobble-head on the dash instead of in the back window.Oh, what we are called to do to build His Kingdom on this earth.

USA – Lyman Baptist church family Back to School Blessing, Lyman, WA, Aug 4, 2019

    Thanks to the Lyman Baptist church family that reaches out to the families in this community providing school supplies and an afternoon filled with fun, food and fellowship. Always looking for relationships that might become eternal if people can open their heart to the true and living God that so desperately wants to become the friend that will never leave them or forsake them.  Thanks to everyone involved including the people that helped with the community garage sale that provided the funding to purchase the school supplies. Lot’s of fun and a great opportunity to “serve rather than be served” for those that cooked, served popcorn and snow cones and shepherded the young and old with the games, bouncy house and the Slip n Slide.

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers (and sisters) live together in unity.” Psalms 133:1

USA – Celebrating the Harvest Kids ministry, Aug 1, 2019

    What a wonderful morning. Fred and I were able to visit with Jim “with joy” Kager at the Life Care Center before heading out to meet Mike and work on the Harvest Kids greenhouse. Jim has been an avid supporter of Harvest Kids since it began 6 years ago and has convinced the people living their that their empty aluminum cans they put in the recycle bin in the library should go to the ministry. We picked up two bags of cans today and were blessed to present a friendship plaque that Laly had made for him with one of his favorite characters, Winnie the Pooh. It summarizes how the kids feel about Jim’s prayers and input into their ongoing ministry to meet the needs of vulnerable children in Africa. It simply showed Winnie saying, “A chat with your best friend solves everything.” Even though Jim has experienced some physical challenges the joy of the Lord is his strength and he always has a smile and one of his goofy jokes. He is much appreciated and a great example of a true disciple of Jesus Christ who is not ashamed of the gospel.

Afterwards, we made it out to the greenhouse to install solar panels and solar lights for the greenhouse. None of us had experience with this technology but we now have lights and a continuous 14.7 volts dc lighting the two lamps in the greenhouse. We are excited the kids are going to be doing a 5-day club, Mon-Fri, 1-3pm, August 19-23 with Child’s Evangelism Fellowship at Wayne & Rebecca’s home where the greenhouse and aquaponics project is located on the Samish River. It is a wonderful time of fellowship and targets young people in the 5-12 year old age group. Please call 360-421-8811 or 360-421-8812 for information.

Africa – There will be more rejoicing, Aug 1, 2019

   Jesus tells us what we should do if we had a hundred sheep and lost one: “Go after it!” “And when we find it, we joyfully put it on our shoulders and go home. Then we call our friends and neighbors together and say, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner that repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” (Luke 15:3-7)

  Thanks to everyone that prays and supports our co-laborers in central Africa. Despite many difficulties and trials, they have chosen to glorify Jesus by doing what He has commanded all of us that are His disciples to do. They are reaching the lost with the light of Jesus Christ as their primary mission. We just received the testimonies from Pr. Evariste in Burundi, who coordinated 7 outreaches in Burundi in July, where the Holy Spirit drew another 2,050 into the waiting arms of their Father in heaven and where they have been able to baptize 1,005 of them. Pr. Charles and Rashida in Kayunga in central Uganda, were witness to another 104 that received Jesus Christ and 10 of those had been of the Muslim faith. So far, in the month of July, four of the coordinators have shared with us that during 54 days of outreach they coordinated 13 outreaches and witnessed a total of 3,785 come to faith in Jesus Christ. 1,298 of them have already been baptized and are now being discipled by believers into their respective local church families.

   Everyone of these new believers were created in the image of God and have now returned to Him the greatest gift they can ever give Him and that is themselves. All precious in the sight of the Lord and in the heart of our Father in heaven. Wonderfully and beautifully made.

Take a moment and honestly ask yourself how you would be celebrating if one of these was your spouse, son or daughter, mother or father or best friend that you know aren’t in a relationship with the true and living God. “Young and old - red and yellow – black and white, they are precious in His sight”

Africa – July testimonies are coming in, July 30, 2019

   We are so blessed that at the end of each month and the beginning of the next we begin to receive the monthly outreach reports from the coordinators in Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, Burundi and the DRCongo. Through the support of Harvest Vision Ministries, they have been provided with sound and video equipment and the support needed to organize outreaches through and with different Christian church families throughout their region. These involve door-to-door, seminars, evangelistic crusades including movies, pastor-leader training, follow-up and help with church planting to disciple new believers. David, who over-sees the ministry in north Uganda, coordinated an outreach to the Palabek South Sudanese refugee camp in their area. Over 1,500 received Christ in those three days and 293 were baptized. Now, the work of setting up church fellowships within the camp for discipleship. Some of the outreaches, such as two that Titus coordinated in the Namaingo District in eastern Uganda, were smaller and more typical. In the town center of Hohoma, where they did door-to-door and a crusade, they witnessed 47 adults and 54 children come to Christ and in the Kamunje village they witnessed 11 adults and 32 children. In these areas, the local believers are trained to take on the initial responsibility of helping the new believers get into local fellowship where they can be encouraged, nurtured and taught to be true disciples of Jesus Christ.

USA – Kellilynn’s Spiritual Recovery Center, Curlew, WA, July 30, 2019

   It is amazing what can happen when a man is called by God and given a vision to share the love of Jesus in the unique way in which he is called. Many thanks to Pr. John Seaman who started the Kellilynn’s Spiritual Recovery Center in Curlew, WA a few years ago. The Lord took his daughter, Kellilynn, home after being involved in a drunk driving accident and after an extensive time in the hospital. She never recovered but was the catalyst that God used to inspire John to begin this ministry. He prayed and scouted out different areas until the Lord led him to this small plot of land in north central Washington along the Canadian border in Curlew. John is working hard, even though he himself has much pain from the abuse his body took during years of drug addiction. He is still in need of a septic system and a well on the property, but also is continually finding himself helping meet the needs of everyone in the area that needs a hand. He is helping take care of some yards for elderly and disabled people that are unable to mow or weed and is in need of a good running self-propelled lawn mower.
