The time that we have had without running back and forth to the ministry house has been a time, for me, has been catching up on everyday tasks around my own home. We have gotten some rain so no need for me to go water. I’ve had time to grocery shop, buy myself a tomato plant, and do the usual things like laundry, etc.
I was told by my handy man about another ministry much like ours and I am absolutely amazed at the work they do. Yes, its helping women rescued straight out of the sex traffic horrors. The Sacred Roots Farm Ministry is much more than what we are planning on doing. Into the Light Ministry is a transition home. The women have previously gone through a year long program before they come to us. That ministry is a working farm and there is no time limit for the women and their children (if they have any) to stay to heal and recover. Milking cows, feeding chickens, and horseback riding can bring amazing healing.
These types of Christian ministries is desperately needed in Georgia. (All across the country actually) Georgia is one of the top sex traffic states. Last report we saw we have gone from number 1 (Atlanta) to number 3 in the U.S.A. and ministries such as this one and ours is less than a handful in this state. Out of Darkness is yet another one. (Atlanta)
From the very first when Pastor and I spoke about starting this ministry I have felt an urgency. Once we actually began the plans and searching for a house the urgency seemed to increase. Now that we have the house and have been doing the renovations it has caused me much frustration (not happening fast enough) and I have to keep reminding myself, “its all in God’s hands and in His timing.” I’ve had to do that this week while pastor is having himself a great time wading out into a flowing cool stream and casting that fly rod. I hope he and his honey had a big old trout dinner. I can hear that crackling campfire and smell those trout frying from here. Its making my mouth water. They both deserve the time away and I pray safe journey back home tomorrow.
In the meantime I’m getting a bit of rest too, but my mind is zeroing back in the direction of what I need to do to get the flower garden done. We still have the front steps and a walkway to install and pastor needs fill dirt to fill in next to the driveway before I can do anything with that end. I’m waiting for his return to get his opinion on whether to use the scalloped edging or blocks, plus all that still needs to be done inside.
I am excited though about a new delivery coming next week. Will it be delivered as promised?
Come on back to see what all the excitement is about. I hope to see you then.
Blessings to you.
Into the Light Ministry
