As 2020 drew to a close, we could not believe time had passed so quickly. The challenges and opportunities that we experienced during the year offer a new perspective as we begin 2021.
What beautiful autumn afternoons we have enjoyed these past few weeks! The weather has been so nice to do everything outdoors. Just about every day we take a walk and enjoy the landscape with the falling leaves. Some of the young sisters and girls have gotten together for different activities, including bread making and sewing classes to learn to make aprons, purses and skirts. In the evenings, our families often enjoy visiting out on the patio, watching the children jump rope and play together.
As 2020 began and COVID-19 interrupted the lives of many around us, the Lord urged us to change our way of thinking and respond to the guidance of our hearts. And, in part, that guidance involved raising more crops. So we began to prepare the ground to plant.
