A hero is someone you look up to because of their courage or good character. Sports stars are often heroes. I want you to meet one!
Mr. Jason Brown was a star NFL player. He made lots of money every year and reporters often said great things about him. When he was released from his team, he shocked everyone. Instead of looking for a new contract to keep living the same way–as a celebrity in a mansion, he and his wife chose to listen to God.
He and his wife knew God wanted them to open a farm and donate all the food to the poor. But the Browns didn’t know how to be farmers. So, they searched the internet and obeyed God by starting First Fruits Farm.
People said giving up millions of dollars to sweat in the dirt was a huge mistake. God had different plans. First Fruits Farms gave away over 110,000 pounds of food last year and will give away over 200,000 pounds this year! Heroes believe God and help us believe too!
“I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you…” Jeremiah 29:11.
Do you have a hero you would like to have others know about?
