Curious, he yells: "Who are you?" He receives the
answer: "Who are you?" Angered at the response, he
screams: "Jerk!" He receives the answer: "Jerk!" He
looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"
The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention." And
then he screams to the canyon: "I like you!" The voice
answers: "I like you!" Again the man screams: "You are
amazing!" The voice answers: "You are amazing!" The boy
is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains: "People call this an ECHO, but
really this is a picture of LIFE. It gives you back
everything you say or do. Our life is simply a
reflection of our actions. If you want more love, you
have to give away more love. If you want more
encouragement, give more encouragement to others. This
relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of
life; life will give you back everything you have given
This is also the harvest principle. October marks the
time of year when farmers will reap what they have sown
months earlier. And, it is the same principle that
drives our Harvest of Talents ministries.
Every October, countless individuals bring items they
have crafted, baked, constructed and or created to our
Harvest event and donate it to help minister together
for World Hunger.
Our Harvest of Talents has become a true “community
event” for so many; an opportunity for people of all
backgrounds to come together in a single cause to help
feed the hungry of our world.
In the past 28 years, the monies collected by this
festival has been used for food and medicine for hungry
and hurting people who have been through a natural
disaster all over our planet. Every dollar and every
cent collected during this event will be given to
International Disaster Emergency Services (IDES) and
distributed through their agency. IDES is a Christian
benevolent organization whose reputation in disaster
situations has been above reproach and we are blessed to
join them in shared ministry.
