  1. Thank you for the book you created with your friend Tricia Goyer. I read it front to back within a few hours couldn’t put it down, only for 30 mins to have some lunch. I have read many stories of the Amish by different Authors borrowing them from my library. They have helped me over the years to grow closer to GOD having been raised a Catholic.

    I don’t like what the world has become and the same sex marriage laws and allowing so much into the schools. I often ask JESUS to come back now.
    Anyway just had to reach out to you Ora Jay and Irene Eash. Bless you both.
    Pat (Australia) I would cherish a ride in your buggy but too far away for me.

  2. I have just finished reading “Plain Truth” and had to tell you how much I enjoyed reading about your life. What was exciting was knowing you found Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. I have often seen the Amish in Pennsylvania and been fascinated with them, but now I see them in a different light because of your story. I have prayed that your families will come to know Christ in a personal way. I wish Maryland weren’t so far from Montana because I would love to experience one of your sleigh rides and dinners. Maybe some day! Thank you for sharing your pain and sorrow, struggles and triumphs on your journey to finding Jesus Christ and the freedoms life in Him brings. May God continue to bless you, your children and grandchildren.

  3. We went yesterday with our children and grandchildren. Was excellent! Such nice welcoming folks, a beautiful sleigh ride. Sledding that is adults enjoyed as much as the kids,wonderful food . Was a very special day. Thank you so much!!

  4. We had such an amazing time today meeting Ora and Irene and experiencing the beauty they have created around their property. The sleigh ride was so much fun and the bbq lunch was excellent. Not to mention a couple of runs down a hill on the tabaggon. We would HIGHLY recommend this. And, be sure to give Gunnar the welcome dog some extra love! Thank you for a wonderful memory!
