Leisha's HOPE is building HOPE!

It's hard to believe, but almost a year ago, I wrote about our first Leisha's HOPE project.  (August 12, 2011)  

It is our heart's desire to partner with Crossroads Church to build the HOPE cabin in the DEEP WOODS spiritual retreat center that is being developed in the 25 acre woods behind the church.

During this year, we rejoice that about 1/3 of the funds needed has come in.  So this month we are going to work to complete the fundraising and get the project underway.  Our goal is to to have the total funds raised by August 16th, 2012.  We are really excited about the possibilities!

For that reason, I'm including an invitation to a special event designed to continue the influence of Leisha's Hope!  You are more than welcome to come.  But please let me know you are coming so I make sure we have enough food to feed you.

On August 16th, 2006 Leisha Burrus told her mom that she wanted to influence others. 
“I want to say to them, ‘I’m going, come with me!”  Fifteen minutes later, she died! 
But her influence lives on in the form of Leisha’s HOPE! 

Green Hope Coaching & All Things New, along with the Burrus family are partnering with Crossroads Church to build the HOPE Cabin in the DEEP WOODS spiritual retreat center as part of LEISHA’S HOPE
