Coming out of the military service at the close of the Korean war, Randall decided to put his agriculture degree to work, so he went into the chicken business. Randall and his wife, Janet, put it all on the line. For several years they struggled to make ends meet, and finally, during one real desperate business cycle, they decided to turn their chicken business over to God. Janet said they prayed, "Lord, this is your business, do what you will with it."
God heard their prayers. Over the years, He prospered their labor. They eventually built a very large chicken business with over 16 million chickens housed in various states. They continued to honor God's faithfulness by becoming generous givers and teaching the principles of generous giving to their four children. In 2007, Randall, Janet, and some of their family established a substantial endowment fund with the Church of the Nazarene Foundation. This endowment will generate income to the local Church of the Nazarene for use in family and children's ministries. The pastor says, "This gift will enable our church to reach into the homes and lives of countless people without negatively impacting our daily operational needs."
The eggs they gathered over a lifetime will produce far more than a wonderful breakfast.
