I just love being around farmers! It probably stems from my work as a child on a tractor.

Article Type: A Message From the Director

Jesus’ words in Matthew 6 have never been more appropriate. In the middle of his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth… But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven… For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (vs. 19a, 20a, 21)
