Peter learned to swim; to relax, to let the water "help" him. He also learned the import- ance of Jesus in his life. Like Peter, we need to learn how to "swim" spiritually. Church offers spiritual "swimming" lessons each and every Sunday. "When heard Simon that it was the Peter Lord, he... sprang into the sea." (Frm Ik Ilevitt rd YmiM d Ike Bibk. INL II(.. INt. 1171.

Rrct Baptist Church - Elk Horn, By Rev. Glenn Rankin . . St. Paul's Episcopal Church Harlan has had a CROP walk for many years as have some other commumties in Shelby County. CROP not only provides food and tools for people to grow food for themselves, it also provides simple resources in many places in Africa, for example, for communities to provide water supplies. In some dry parts of Africa, women may have to walk 10 miles just one way daily to get a meager amount of water for their families. But through simple wells, very simple irrigation systems, planning, and conservation of supplies, communities are being provided with water for cooking, bathing, and for crops. These changes involve the whole community, effect the whole community, and benefit the whole community. Water is a precious girl. People in the U.S. have rarely had to worry about water. Turn on the tap and let it run! Yet our national thirst for water continues to grow as the supplies of water continue to diminish. Use and diversion of rivers has become a very heated political topic. Heat and draught have only made these problems seem more pressing as community wells fail. Why doesn't someone else provide us with more water? Why doesn't someone else conserve so that we can enjoy more? Why doesn't someone else find a solution that will not ask anything of us? Water is a previous gift. Whether in Africa or the U.S., Christian people believe that good and careful stewardship of God's creation is an important part of faith. Use and conservation of our national resources becomes part of our religious conviction because we are all called to be good stewards. Someone elses stewardship doesn't free me to be careless or indifferent. How can you be a good steward of the water you use? How can your community best conserve its use of water? These things won't happen by chance or by someone else doing it. Conservation of our water supplies will only happen when we all care, talk about it, and get involved. Like all God's gifts, our stewardship of our water resources requires attention, planning, and care. Water is truly a precious gift.

Beef promotion team announced Tyson Haas (Larry), I/arian, is one of 50 4-H'ers on the Iowa 4-H beef promotion team to educate Iowa con- sumers about beef. Tyson and teammates attended a one-day workshop in Denison to learn about the program. "This program will help 4- H'ers develop communication and leadership skills," said Barbara Dunn, Shelby County Extension 4-H and Youth leader. "They will use these skills to explain how high quality, lean beef is produced and answer questions con- sumers may have about the production of beef." Tyson and other 4-H'ers on the beef promotion team will staff a display at least twice in an urban area and once at the 1989 Iowa State Fair. The ti- de of the display is "4-H'ers- Producing Beef 4-You." Barb said, "The youth want to inform consumers that 4- H'ers are producing lean, nu- tritious beef to meet con- sumer demands. The program also will increase the visibil- ity of the 4-H beef project and the number of 4-H'ers in- volved in the beef promo- tion." The project is being funded by a $2,100 grant from the National Beef Industry Council and is made available by National 4-H Council. For more information, contact the Shelby county Extension Office.
