Today I spent nearly $1400 on clothes and other items for my mission.
It was the culmination of roughly 160 hours of farm work last summer.
I traded long mornings weeding fields for two suits.
I traded afternoons hauling hay for eleven white shirts.
I traded late nights and early mornings handling irrigation water for five pairs of slacks.
I traded digging ditches for neckties, socks, and a coat.
I’d say it was a fair trade.
