I have been blessed to be married into such a wonderful family, that I would like to see my inlaws dreams come true. Here is a little about thier history.
Once upon a time, over twenty years ago, they believed that God had given them a dream to minister to people one on one, in an environment somewhat apart from "normal" life that included aspects of close community life. This dream followed them through the ensuing years, but remained a dream as raising a family and other ministry opportunities took priority. Unrealized dreams become burdens and the frustration of not making this dream a reality became so great at times that they prayed and asked the Lord to take the dream away. He never did.
In 2000 they received a very unexpected letter from a missionary friend who shared with them that the Lord had prompted him to encourage us not to lay our dream aside. Four months later some dear friends called and said that the Lord had laid on their hearts a similar message: they needed to be encouraged to proceed with their dream. In the subsequent year and a half they met with these dear friends, almost every weekend to talk, pray and wait on the Lord for guidance and direction. They are excited to report that at this time their friends, along with four other couples, have been serving on the Life in the Vine board of directors for the last eighteen months.
More exciting news had graced them as a man decided to donate a few cabins to thier dream. This amazing opportunity will allow Life in the Vine to blossom and grow. Truly bringing thier dreams to reality. This is where we need your help. In order for the cabins to be rebuilt we need to hire a Construction Manager. This person will be in charge of making sure that the cabins get built in a timely mannor. We will need to raise around $75,000 to cover his fees for the lenth of the project.
