“Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal:” John 4:35-36
I know these boys not only have a few months, but a few years before their missionary service, however I feel the preparation for that service is hastening. Never has the world been so hard and never has God needed stronger laborers for His harvest.
I love the look of conviction in the eyes of these brothers, and though they are standing together they each look a different direction. A foreshadowing of the day when a common cause will send them to labor in different parts of the world. “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38
