Frgm the furrow to the factory, farming and agri-business are going through their most difficult days since the Great Depression. The documentary, "Come Before Winter: Missouri Baptist Relate to the Farm Crisis," is a 30-minute video produced by the Missouri Baptist Convention. It examines the role of the church in the current situation. The documentary is scheduled to be shown Nov. 3 over KQTV, St. Joseph at 1 p.m., and KTVO, Channel 3, Kirksville at 5 p.m. Missouri Baptists are predominantly a rural denomination and a lot of their members are involved in this hurting, according to Don Evans, an associate in the Missouri Baptist Convention, missions department. Evans, who is in charge of the project for Missouri Baptists explained that "we got involved because there is a need out there." The need "out there" has been to bridge the gap between the facts about the crisis and some relief for the victims. One farmer described the farming situation by comparing it to an injured hand, "you go to bed with it hurting, and you wake up with it hurting." The need to bridge this gap was also the major reason KOMU-TV in Columbia offered their services in the production of the video. Tom Gray, KOMU station manager shared that although the station had done a number of series on farm problems, the Missouri Baptist video not only addresses major concerns, it discusses how to cope with them. "This is a facet we felt hadn't been continued, "It is in our interest of the viewing get it on the air." Addressing the issue is what the documentary catalogs recent history words and experience of The doctary ward trend in farm boom years of the examines some reasons happened. In the process close look at the personal rural people across the state. One farmer a prospect of filing for "Even if I file like I need to pay those shared his struggle with question, "It's a matter of selfworth...gotta keep Another aspect the traces is the effect the related business and school superintendent able drop in enro because of farm families people moving away to Another man ment dealers can't merchants can't make it, hurt -- all becaus their has no cash flow. The documentary appeal that churches csn through the stress that crisis. One farmer put it thiJ don't need somebody their hand - just someone they care." Another statement, "We're still don't see how anyone church connection can (because) it's a matter of 'Gospel Music Specta at Hannibal-LaGrange A "Gospel Music Spectacular" will feature a joint concert by the Luster Family and Cornerstone 33 AD at 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 2 in the Hannibal-LaGrange College Auditor- ium, in Hannibal.
