Spring at the farm

Well, I know it's been a while since I've posted on here, but we've been really busy.  It is definitely spring here at the Feldman farm, and spring means that we will be busy.  There's been a garden to plant, an orchard to be put in, mites on the chickens, a sheep to shear (by hand, with scissors!) and also the usual animal care.  I've also found time to build an incubator, order chicks, and even do some fishing.  Hopefully we'll be getting a trotline out on the lake soon, so can utilize some of the natural resources there.  Daddy is planning to build a new porch onto the front of the house, which means that all the plants and trees need to be moved to new locations, so yesterday it looked like we were playing musical plants.  Evan also built a large cage on the girls' room window for our two cockatiels, Captain and Papageno.
    So that's pretty much what's been going on at our house.  I have an update from the Schmidts in Haiti.  They are continuing to build a relationship with Pastor Antoine, and are already moving their buildings out of the front yard to Pierre Payen.  Here is the link to their most recent newsletter.  SCH March NewsletterThis page on the Harvest Int. website has the newsletter from a different orphanage on it as well, so you'll have to scroll down the page to see the one from the Schmidts.  Thank you for all your prayers.  Please continue to pray for them.


  1. Spring on the farm...a beautiful picture of working together to harvest together the fruit of thy labor. :) We, too, have planted our spring garden and Lord willing, will have another successful year of growth and fruit. Animals...a desire and prayer for open doors to that one day. :)

    Thanks for the update on the Schmidts and your lovely family. Tell all "hello" for us.

    The 9...10 Smiths :D

  2. Joyous spring is finally here! Thank you for your sweet update. :)

    In Christ,
