If we are afraid to be different from the world, how can we make a difference in the world? ~Rev. John I. Jenkins
Our family had a busy weekend. As Justin reported, there is there a flurry of spring plantings –a couple hundred soil blocks made and two hundred strawberry crowns in the ground.
But we also had a local outreach work on Saturday which was held at a private home for a gathering of ladies young and old . The theme was about “bringing the revolution home” and how we must re-skill in order to be less dependent on outside resources or “the yellow pages.” Before starting the talk, we all sent up prayers for the people in Japan, noting how thankful and blessed we all were even to have a chance to be there that morning. After having witnessed the destruction in Japan, we realize that no amount of planning and preparation will save us from nature’s wrath.
Narrowing down the “exodus from the home/bringing our lives back to the home” to seven points, this brand new “lecture” with the open discussion that followed focused on the baby steps we all can take to slow down and take control over our modern “24/7′ lives.

6. Goods & Services
I certainly gleaned a few ideas from the lively discussion that followed.
What great fun we had yesterday. Everyone is a stir and your younger sister had the girls all excited! Thank you! – MH
I think this was my favorite outreach group as I loved chatting with the younger girls who were so excited over the topics that were covered. Many thanks goes to MH for the invite & to the host family for the warm and generous hospitality – thank you!
