Soil. Shovel. Snap. Lift. Dump. The feeling of the wooden handle against my skin, sifting through the soil for potatoes, getting dirt underneath my fingernails…. There’s nothing like it! This is what I experienced everyday: the joy of getting to make the earth new, while gaining an understanding of food and culture that went beyond what I could have imagined. I found beauty in learning about different cultures and practicing Jesus’ love in real tangible ways. Continue reading “Thursday, August 30”
