The Adams County Record Wednesday, July 11, 2012 Page 9 Extension D Corner By Shanna Hamilton -- 253-4279 Better late than never right?! The months keep slipping away from me, and June was no exception. There have been field days from Marsing to Council, Record book trainings and workshops, and as always meetings galore! The 2nd "Farm Tour" was in Cascade this year on June 19, and had a good turnout of around 32! We were able to visit 3 ranches, including Little Land & Livestock, Shaw Herefords, and Davis Cattle. There will be an article to the paper, as one Farm Bureau press staff was able to join us and will submit when he is finished. Thank you the Valley/Adams Farm Bureau for helping with this event. Looking forward to next year's tour! If you have ideas that would be educational in, or around Adams County, let us know. The Adams County Fair is right around the corner, literally! The time has flown by, and here are some fantastic events we are doing to celebrate the 100th year of Idaho 4-H!

As I watch them and listen them and they talk about their worries and the nightmares they sometimes have, they are afraid of the unknown. But I also have talked to a lot of adults who are fearful and are afraid of the unknown. I suppose we are all afraid of something. But there is great news! God tells us we don't need to be afraid! For many of the adults I have talked to, their biggest fear is dying. But even in that, God says "Trust Me!" 1 Corinthians 15:48-55 says, "Every human being has an earthly body just like Adam's, but our heavenly bodies will be just like Christ's. Just as we are now like Adam, the man of the earth, so we will someday be like Christ, the man from heaven. What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that flesh and blood Cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These perishable bodies of ours are not able to live forever. But let me tell yQu a wonderful secret God Rowland Auction Service COTTTONVgOOD, IDAHO (208) 96.2"3284 Sales are Fridays at 12:30 PM. Dennis Rowland - Owner Cell: 208.983-7400 Brent Rowland - Rep. Cell: 208-451-4415 by Ion Sorg has revealed to us. Not all of us will die, but we will all be transformed. It will happen in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, the Christians who have died will be raised with transformed bodies. And then we who are living will be transformed so that we will never die. For our perishable earthly bodies must be transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die. When this happens - when our perishable earthly bodies have been transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die - then at last the Scriptures will come true: "Death is swallowed up in victory, 0 death, where is your victory? 0 death, where is your sting?" What a great promise and hope we have because we know that God will do what He says He will do! So even at the end of all things, even in death, there is a new adventure waiting for those who love the Lord! To be transformed into the likeness of Christ! Let's keep preparing for our awesome adventure!
