Pictured: Elden ‘Bousa’ Oster holding a cluster of wheat stems in a paddock that has miraculously flourished despite the erratic weather conditions of the past season.
Along with his sons Jake and Charlie, Elden Oster takes great pride in working the land. He sees it as a great privilege to be part of feeding the world from the family farm on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. Despite the lack of early rains in April/May this year Elden moved ahead in faith to begin planting crops, asking God to use the land as a witness of His provision and faithfulness. Miraculously, the crop in this paddock is thriving. It’s still a long way to go before reaping begins in November but this is just another example of faith for the harvest. Believing for God’s best in the tough times and the good times.
From one humble seed planted in faith an abundance can come. There are nine healthy stems on this one plant that all have the potential to produce quality heads of wheat. From one seed a multitude will grow. It seems to be the master plan of everything God has created. Please pray for the farming families across Australia who work tirelessly every year to produce food for the nations of the world. Without them we would not have the basic essentials for our everyday lives.
