This handsome man is my grandpa and he turned 94 today!
He lives on land that’s been in our family since 1885, although the farmhouse was built in 1902. He has been farming for over 80 years and also had a repair shop (located on the farm) for almost 50 years. (Click on the picture to see it bigger.)
He is a God-seeking, kind, generous, hard-working man and always has fun and interesting stories to tell. He also a very creative thinker and has come up with some really neat inventions to help with his repair work and farming.
Quite a few years ago he and my beautiful grandma (who died in 2005) started going on mission trips to Mexico each January to help build churches. A few weeks ago he, two of my aunts and my mom made another trip to Mexico…it was my grandpa’s 16th mission trip!
