If you missed the first part of our past year in pictures, you might want to skim it right quick before you read on. We are hoping to catch up with friends and family through a series of posts with mostly pictures, recounting some of the “glory moments“, challenges, and lessons learned so far on our journey into a whole new way of life . . . agrarian community living. As you can see from the photo above, our youngest has had the toughest time on this journey, but he is walking now and discovering that life isn’t so bad when you can get out of the travel trailer and explore.
We prayed for years for land and Yahweh blessed us with 20 acres in the rural Missouri Ozarks, just outside of Goodhope. Little did we know at the time that we were just a little over a mile away from a family endeavoring to live like us. It took a mutual friend and a Baker Creek festival for us to finally meet them, months after purchasing our land. We still deeply long to have our best friends from California with us here on our land (in His time), but so praise God for the blessing of the family down the road.
Lesson Learned: Perhaps one of the biggest lessons we have learned so far is that the agrarian way of life cannot be lived without true community, at least that’s how we feel about it.
Praise Yahweh for all the glory moments, challenges, and lessons learned . . . they have all deepened our love for Him and each other. More moments in pictures to come . . .
