Fresh Veggies from the Farmer’s Market

This week one of our church families contacted the RWN to mention some fresh vegetables available for our arrivals from other countries.  This FWC family have a subscription service with Painter’s Farms to pick up vegetables each weekend at the Farmer’s Market.  The family was going to be out of town and they wanted to put the vegetables to good use.

We picked up the vegetables, passed them along to Pastor Cing who will focus on giving them to families whose breadwinner’s just lost their job at the chicken processing plants in Mocksville and Siler City.  We want to let them know we are thinking about them and praying for them.   Here’s the story in pictures:

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John

  1. Was sorry to hear about those who lost their jobs. Will pray for a quick turn around.

  2. i am praying for all the Burmese men who have lost their jobs.

  3. Melody, it seems the Siler City plant is remaining open until Sept 30. Perhaps God will work a miracle and find a buyer for the plant. A number of our High Point refugees were working in Mocksville and have had to look elsewhere for jobs. Some have found work at Wayne farms in Surry County.
