Tye is the youth minister at Rocketdyne Road Church of Christ. He has a wonderful vision, to turn the fallow field just south of Maxine Austin's home into a huge garden to feed the hungry in Neosho. That field hasn't been worked in decades, so he had quite a task ahead of him. The field has been plowed, disked, rototilled, fenced and planted. May God give him grace to continue the labor and a bountiful harvest sufficient to meet the need here in this area.

The harvest begins. Scroll down to see the fruit of Tye's labors.

Weeds are ever present.
