For Fertile Soil

For Fertile Soil

The above video is taken from a train and shows what typical small farms look like in the Basque Country. Many of these may provide a supplement of food for an extended family, some may be used to sell at local markets, and some are just for fun. Many are done on land that is rented from someone who owns a lot of land and the payment is made in a certain number of vegetables each week.

Today would you take time to pray through the Parable of the Sower? Here’s a link to Matthew 13:1-23 or you can read it in your Bible.

As you read, would you take time to pray for each type of soil (each type of person) that could be here in Basque Country. Pray that Christ followers who are here would be able to find those who have hearts who are ready to listen to the gospel.

The truth is in the Basque Country that most of the ground is not good for farming. However, the valleys near the river and small plots of land from place to place do yield a really good harvest. So use these pictures, this text, and this video to help direct your prayers for the Basque Country today.
