Yesterday I saw a man plowing his field. It was actually a man and two boys. One man held the plow, another grabbed the horses harness and helped direct him, and the third whacked the horse on the rear end to keep him motivated!
I grew up either near or on a farm, so I understand something about plowing. But we plowed with tractor and plow, not horse and plow. We could plow through a field in a few hours. They plowed through an single acre in hours.
It is still hard to break new ground in Moldova. Hearts are crusted over. Minds are resistant to the message of God's love. Religiosity makes new church plants difficult, dependent on intensive prayer and loads of work.
Pray for Moldova this week: that the spiritual ground will be broken; that hearts will be turned to God; that the spiritual harvest may be great and plentiful!
