It's been a while

We are still waiting on the Lord's timing...

A year and a half since the last post LOL I didn't realize it had been so long.

We have been back to Gunnison twice since the last post. Turns out we know the people who own the Goose Creek property. They are trying to sell it for their is still available.

I have started sending resumes out to selected churches that I think would fit us well.

I Preached quite a bit last fall and early winter before we got our new pastor (he is a great guy!)...I even baptized 6 or 8 people, including two of my own children!

There are a couple 40 acre parcels a few miles south of town that could work pretty good, since they close to the mountain biking mecca of Hartman Rocks.

I have been writing so much in the last couple years that the blogs have gone from neglected to almost dead.

Maybe the Lord will allow my writing to pay for our ministry and retreat in Colorado...I don't know.

If you know someone who wants to invest in a ministry right from the ground floor, show them this blog and our vision statement.

Keep praying and I am sure the ministry will touch people even if we don't know it.

In the Lords time

Waiting in the Lord to provide if He so wills.
Found an affordable place on Goose even has water and gold.
We will be out there this summer so i will take a look at it.
I have spent some time on Goose creek panning so I know the area well.

Did some supply preaching last week and did a baptism on Easter Sunday.
The Lord is using me again in little ways.
I have a couple resumes out so we will see what He has in store for us!

Still have the dream

Here is a remote piece of property that would work well for the retreat. View it here

It wouldn't work as well for the community to come and buy produce but would be great for a quiet meditative place to recharge your spiritual batteries.

Found another beautiful place

Here is a nice place closer to town.
It is on the Hartman Rocks trail system so we would be getting lots of traffic from the kind of people we are going to try and reach.
Best of all it is less than $40K
20 Acres McCabes lane

Someday the Lord will send us back I am confident.
Tanya and I have both picked up writing gigs that are providing a small portion of income so far but have the potential to grow.
Pray for this ministry to get off the ground (or into it)

320 acre ranch is still available

The ranch we would like was on Cragslist once again yesterday.
The Lord will have to move in order for us to get it.
We are still here hopefully fruiting where we are planted while praying for His direction.
We talked briefly about a church planting opportunity in western Colorado and were really excited about it, but we feel the Lord did not us to pursue that at this time.

Keep us in your prayers,

Reaching the lost

The Vulcan ranch was on craigslist again today 321 acre ranch.

I know God owns the cattle on a  thousand hillsides and He will be able to give us the land we need when it's His time.

Just knowing His perfect will is the big thing, He will use you if you are willing even when you are out of His will.

Talking to friends in Gunnison they think this ministry we have proposed is a great idea to reach the lost of the area...the added bonus is helping pastors to relax and unwind.

The people in the area are big time into health and fitness, a ranch like this with locally and organically grown whole food is just the ticket into many hearts that have been hardened to the gospel over the years from outsiders coming in and trying to "save" them.

It is not anything we can is a God thing.

Continue to pray that we would have clear guidance on what we should do with either the retreat or the church plant.

Praying for direction

We have an opportunity to plant a church in Colorado.

The community is very similar to Gunnison and we think it would be a very good fit for us.

Although we don't want to go if God is not in it...praying for clear direction in this matter.

Please pray with us...or if you are praying about helping us with the retreat let us know...
