God blessed us with 6.85 inches of rain which should be a record for August for central Texas. It will help the pastures & hayfields.
The corn & cotton crops will have mostly low yields. There are very few crops in West TX other than what is irrigated. Hay is in short supply because of the drought. Farmers & ranchers and those in agriculture are forced with little or no income after working hard all year.
When we think things are not going very well, we can remember what Carrie Ten Boom said in the German Concentration camp. She stated, “we need to praise God for all things”. We need to pray that God will give us faith to praise Him in all circumstances.
We had a great FCAI program at Conference & Show. Martin Higgenbotham from Florida gave the program & Denny Stouffer of Maryland presented the praise music.
FCAI officers elected from Texas were Amy Assiter, Alvin Kaddatz, Lisa Gay, John Gay, Traci Yeaman, Spanky Assiter, & John Sisk.
