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.
