You are getting a special treat here*, dear blog reader. We had a team last week of four people. Well below our normal for a team...but this was no ordinary team. It's hard to share exactly how all this came together without writing a lot...but sufficit to say, we wouldn't have our 1025r tractor here for the farm, if it weren't for Tractor Time with Tim's YouTube channel.
They came down last week, along with Felipe's dad Kenton, and Cecilia's fiance Dave, all of whom helped with four days of tractor. Tractor work, tractor education, tractor invesigation...it was a lot.
It was also a blessing, all the way around. It isn't something we have ever done, so we had a schedule, but none of us were quite sure how it would come together. It wasn't perfect...but it came together in a way it was clear it was God, and we were all blessed because of it. Blessings abound!
Not just the expertise shared, the progress made, the education for Jorge and Jeffrey...but just sharing stories, learning more about each other, about the capabilities of the tractor, it goes on and on.
*I took some drone videos (posted below...finally getting the mission its own YouTube page, narrated even these videos.) You can check out Tractor Time with Tim's first video here. More will be coming in the next couple weeks of the other days we worked up there.
The whole week was not only was it yet another reinforcement of the value of our tractor to the mission and communities/people we serve, it also came along at the same time to prove how useful the Gator we just purchased for Las Botijas will be for that farm as well. Expensive purchases sometimes, even when you think you made the right call, when you can see it play out in front of you...are encouraging as well.
Harvest is now in full swing, so between that, trying to finish the clinics in each location, and road work...everyone will be busy in both communities for a while to come. Glory to God!
