The Peanut Farmer

I have become a peanut farmer.  Salif and Simon, two members of our church, asked me if I wanted to farm with them this year.  Sure, why not.  While Jason Rishel was with us, he helped to plant the two acres.  Today, I went to pick up about half of the peanuts.  We are waiting for hopefully another rain.  If not, we will lose the other half.  I did this to be a help to Salif and Simon and to also show an example as we will give our tithe off of what God has given us.  Here are a few pictures.  The kids enjoyed helping also.

Car full of peanuts

Looks like a Georgia redneck in Africa.  Yes, the back of the car is absolutely full.  We have no machinery, all done by hand.

    That would be a Georgia Bulldog redneck if you are going to claim the name.

    Hi there!

    The photo of the harvest is VERY impressive!

    I am thrilled to have found your blog since I am planning to arrive in Accra in the later part of November! I will live in Ghana for a year while I am starting a nonprofit. I am very excited!

    I started a blog to serve as my online diary while I am there!

    The Lord has so many things in store and I am bursting with anticipation! I hope to meet all of the brothers and sisters in Christ from the U.S. when I arrive!


    (ah yes, a woman nicknamed Paul! Long story! *giggles*)
