Bob's Memorial Tractor

Bob's Memorial Tractor stripped down for restoration.

May is almost over and we have been so busy that the month has blown by fast.  We thank God for his daily protection at everything we have done here at the home.
Work has started on Dads Memorial. After much thought on what to do and where to do it. We are going to make a special place at the entrance of the home where Dads Ford tractor will sit forever under a very nice shaded spot. It will be a few feet from where the ground breaking ceremony was held 40 years ago.
The tractor has been out at the barn but had not been in use since we got the big Massey Fergusson 6 years ago.  It has taken us 2 weeks to get it cleaned up and I will attempt to give it a nice fresh coat of paint and restore it to look just like it was when brand new.  It does run, but needs lots of rubber parts replaced before turning the key.  
We thank you very much for sending your special memorial donations to us, please continue praying for all of us here at the home as we continue trying our best on this mission field without Dad.
