Ministry Update 2-8-21

We are so excited about how the Lord is using his people to supply everything needed for the Village, our tiny-home community for the unsheltered that we are building here in Cullman, AL. I’d like to share some of these blessings from the last ten or so days.

First, Winston Home Builders in Double Springs, AL, contacted us about a 28’x60′ office unit they had. This commercial grade unit, was built several years ago but never sold. It has never been used and they asked us if we would be interested taking it as a donation. Of course, we were happy to say yes! We are planning to use this as our first office at the Village property. It will give us a place for administration and management and save us thousands of dollars.

Along with the office, the same business gave us a tractor-trailer load of sheetrock. This was left over material they no longer needed. We plan to use the sheetrock for the tiny homes!

We were also blessed last week with a generous memorial gift in honor of Mrs. Melanie Parker. Melanie loved our ministry and prayed for us often. This special gift was used to purchase an additional lot near the Village property and also a 4×4 heavy duty truck.

It would take a long time to tell you the whole story, but God had all of this planned out and we are thankful for his goodness and the generosity of the givers. There is a 1200 sq foot building on the lot that we intend to use for a shop to help support our building efforts. The truck will be put to use not only at the Village property but for whatever else we need.

Coming up

Our annual live fundraiser is coming up in only five weeks. It will be Thursday, March, 11th. This is our one big fundraiser we do every year that helps us to keep our doors open. In order to continue our projects, such as the Village, we need to have a successful fundraiser.

We have already had several people make pledges. To be honest, that’s how this one really does good. We work hard in the weeks leading up to the live share-a-thon style event to raise as much as we can. The goal this year is $100,000. We are praying for $80,000 to be pledged or given before before March 11th.
