I am honored to pray for the Buckingham's, and trust with God's help that they will be able to restore their Sacred Grounds and Pottery business. When I read that their business building was built in the 1930's, it took me back to a letter written by my grandfather in Olelomoana (So. Kona) on September 13, 1944... it was written to my mother in it he wrote about her siblings in other parts of the world and "the expensive, useful things they would send home, the younger ones who were still in school were on vacation at the time to start again in the latter part of November in line with Kona coffee picking season... Kona the same, most young men had gone to war, price of poi is very dear, only Higashi selling poi, fish hard to get, all go to Hilo Market... still raising taro, bananas, and sugar cane..." Things don't seem to change much. Poi has often become scarce today, with high prices, etc. ha. It's a wonderful, well written letter, though quite personal, depicts the life and times in Kona back then, coffee picking season being one of the highlights! Isn't it a blessing to know that God's economy is not at all tied in to our nation's economy and its woes. Keep faithful in the Lord's economy and you and your business will experience all that you could ask and hope for.
