Alva, Okla — As I mentioned in my first post of the 2016 season, I feel like I am finally where I belong! I am content with my life and and trusting God to know what is best me. One of these many blessings in my life came very unexpectedly. In February, my family and I went to a harvesters meeting. There I met a wonderful man whom now I cannot imagine my life without. David Begley works on a custom harvesting crew, but on the silage side of things. The chopping world is so different than the what harvest world, but we really are working for the same result: to harvest the crops that feed the world. He drives the truck along side their chopper and keeps the road hot between the field and the pit. His brother-in-law, Matthew, and sister, Rana, are the owners/operators of Zeller Harvesting Co. and are wonderful people. I got the chance to go see David on the harvest run near Alva, Oklahoma. Let me tell you, it was an experience I will never forget! Harvest for the Zellers start in April and ends in November. It is very similar to our harvest run. They cut grass in the summer and milo and corn in the fall.
Be safe and God bless!
