Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children

 

10 Acre Challenge

How It Works

GROW: Sow your seed, and say your prayers. Let God do the rest.

GIVE: Donate a portion of what you are blessed with to children and families at Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children(OBHC). Some farmers choose to give 10 acres worth of crop production. This can be donated through your local co-op. Contact Mike Williams who will collect the gift. Examples: grain, lumber, canola, cotton, corn, milo, wheat, etc.

CHALLENGE: Challenge your buddies to do the same. Together, the impact of your gifts will help children and families in a great big way.

Other Ways to Take the Challenge

While donating 10 acres worth of crop production is a special way to help children and families, any gift of any amount is welcome. Other ways to give include: cash, check, online credit card donation, income from oil/gas or wind energy contracts, property, equipment, etc. Do you have something in mind you would like to donate? Call Mike Williams, and he will help coordinate your donation.

Garden City, Kansas – The day the boys from the Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children came to visit the field will be one of my most favorite memories of the 2017 wheat harvest. 
It was a blessing to me to see the excitement in these boys’ eyes. None of them had any idea what they were about to experience when they left their cottage that morning. Their wonderment at the large combine, tractor and truck did my heart good to see them so interested in what we were doing and to watch the machines working through their eyes.

Cheyenne, Oklahoma – On the afternoon of June 10th we had the privilege of welcoming four guys from the Boys Town Ranch in Edmond, Oklahoma-
a ministry of the Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children. It is always neat to have a chance to educate anyone on what goes on during harvest, but especially some young, eager minds.

Apache, Oklahoma – The Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children brought three young men out to our field the other day to get a first-hand harvest experience.
They loved it! These boys all came from different backgrounds but all found something they enjoyed about the harvester’s life. They were telling me how cool they thought my job was, how cool my LIFE was, and one even admitted he now wanted to be a harvester when he grew up.

West central Oklahoma – On Sunday we had the privilege of welcoming three young men from the Boys Ranch Town in Edmond to High Plains Harvesting.
Mike, organizer of the 10-Acre Challenge, and I have been trying to coordinate a visit since my drive down to Texas; and until last week, he heard a lot of, “It rained today. Try back in a few days,” or “We’re switching fields a lot and its going fast. It will probably be tough to coordinate.”
