  4. Prayers of thanks for the rain!
    It's beautiful to know that the long soaking rains we have this weekend and during recent thunderstorms are providing just the right
    thirst-quenching moisture our crops need.
    Hopefully, new growth and good fruits will
    continue to sustain the harvest for ACTC.
