He has shown you, O man, what is good;

To act justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God.

Preface from “Entrepreneurship with a Mission”

This book is dedicated to all those who have enriched our lives as we have had the privilege of living and working with them over the years. Mine has been a blessed life as I have shared it with Elaine, my wonderful wife of 50 (52) years, and our children; Nancy and her husband Chuck, Heather and her husband Peter, Ian and his wife Laura, and David. In addition, we are proud to be the grandparents to 12 wonderful grandchildren.

It has also been a wonderful privilege to work alongside our Grand Valley Fortifiers family of employees which now number close to 125 (160). Beyond these is our great family of customers which we have the privilege of serving every day. It brings us great joy and satisfaction to work together with them, helping to achieve their production goals. Over the years, many long-term friendships have been established and it is rewarding to now be able to work with a number of third generation family farms.

In this book we have shared with you the story of our lives including the good times, the difficult times, successes as well as some failures.

You will read how I came to trust the Lord early in my life and the blessing we have experienced as we looked to God for guidance, direction and provision for our every need. He inspired us with challenges and with opportunities to become included in mission projects and other opportunities of service.

In has been an exciting and fulfilling life for Elaine, myself and our entire family.

We are happy to share our story with you and trust that Grand Valley Fortifiers will continue to have a positive impact as we continue to have the opportunity to work and share with the finest people in the entire world, “our farmers”.

God Bless,

Jim and Elaine Ross and the entire Grand Valley Fortifiers Family, February 2015.
