summer

field fellowship. . .

 It’s strawberry season here on the Island. Time for strawberry shortcake, pie, jam and socials.

The girl of the family is holding down 3 jobs this summer, saving money for her mission trip next winter. Picking strawberries is one of them. It’s long, hot work but she’s good-natured about it and glad for the chance to earn money.

Her dad is helping out, joining her in the fields for an hour before work each morning. He loves to pick berries side by side with the strawberry farmer, who also happens to be best friend and elder in the church. It’s a good time of fellowship for them both.

 And the extra boxes of berries, added to Sarah’s daily total, help keep up our future missionary’s morale!

  3. Lovely looking day, and lovely strawberries. Good for your daughter for being so motivated! In my family, I’m afraid, there is just as much strawberries eaten as put in the bucket. The missionary trip would be a long time coming! LOL.
