S.I.F.A.T. Servants in Faith and Technology

S.I.F.A.T. (Servants in Faith and Technology -or- Southern Institute for Applied Technology)

In 1983/4 when I left Southern Seminary (without graduating) I headed down to eastern Alabama and lived and worked at S.I.F.A.T. (a Methodist institution) for about 11 months.  I am not a “people person” but they put up with me for the time.  I was 29/30 years old during the time, and learned to milk cows (Stephanie & Sugar), kill chickens (75 one morning, mostly with a machete) and even build a RAM pump.   We had an IBM PC and an external, 10 MB Winchester Hard Drive.   I transferred the VHS video into a digital form and then put it on YouTube in segments.  It is interesting that the video is now 30 years old, so for historical purposes it is probably important.
