Safe and green on the farm-in God's care

IT'S NOW SUMMER on our farm in Australia. When my article, "Praying our way out of desperation," appeared in the Sentinel in May (see May 7, 2007, p. 10), we'd been experiencing a drought in Queensland for over a decade, with little or no rain. Our dams, or water reservoirs, were very low. Although my husband, Dudley, and I had been praying during this extended time, there seemed to be no prospect of planting our winter crop of wheat and barley.

But the publication of our article brought new momentum and inspiration to our prayers. An outpouring of letters, phone calls, and e-mail messages came from readers in Australia, the United States, and Canada, letting us know that we were in their prayers. I couldn't believe it! Such love and care deeply moved Dudley and me. We could actually feel the support of others praying right along with us.
