Our rice farm has put our faith through some tortuous times after two straight crop failures, a lot of farmers were afraid to plant until the rains came. Now, it is too wet. We are blessed with one of the best looking crops in Cambodia. Unfortunately, because our rice is so lush and green, all the pests love it. The fortunate rain we’ve received has led to a fungal disease called “rice blast”. We either treat it or lose a crop, so we treat it. The rats saw the best crop around so they moved in for lunch, we poisoned them and now cray fish are popping out of the ground with scissor like claws and all they do is cut. They don’t even bother to eat, they just cut the rice so we kill them. Its enough to make you think “Murphy” was an optimist; you know, they guy who said, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong!” Well Murphy is wrong! Nothing worthwhile in the kingdom of God will go unopposed. We will face obstacles and only grow stronger when we defeat those devils.
