It is pretty incredible to think back to a year ago and realize how far God has brought us. I want to take this time and thank everyone for their prayers, advice, and help. Moving our family and farm 460 miles was not what we were planning to be doing at this stage of our life. However we are excited to be following God’s leading in this.
We are enjoying our new home, which finally became ours on December 30, 2015. It was a long drawn out process with the banks. However over and over God has confirmed that despite that hurdle that we are where he wants us. From understanding sellers, to strangers welcoming us to the area and tell us how they have been praying for a family like ours to buy this particular farm. We are very grateful to finally be homeowners!
It seems that everywhere we look there is another blog or post about the challenges for beginning farmers. While we try to be open to God calling to a different vocation, for now we feel very blessed to keep farming. It has been very challenging and humbling in many ways. We thank God for his provision and lean on him more every day. I’m sure 2016 will have many new adventures of its own!
