But I am so excited to share it with you!
So here's the outside view as we had our celebration on the porch. The weatherman told us we would have a chance of thunderstorms and rain, but no storms happened in the WOODS and the rain held off till the last people were making their way into the church for refreshments.
Passing HOPE on to the next generation!
We had about 35 people join us for the Dedication. Rennie shared the purpose for our meeting- a celebration of Hope passed on to us by Leisha. A living faith even though she is not! A dedication of something that represents hope to many who will spend time with in its walls.
I acknowledged all those who were in attendance;
people from our past and our present,
people who knew Leisha, many who never did,
3 of Leisha's girl friends came, representing many others who connected with us during the week
some came who barely knew us, but were attracted to story of hope we had been able to share.
I wish I could share of those stories with you- but those are not mine to share!
Thank you Megan & Tori!
We loved having you!
The girls represented LEISHA'S HOPE passing on the HOPE cabin to the Crossroads staff who represented DEEP WOODS. Pastor Randy gave a dedicatory prayer, then invited us to surround the cabin and join hands to offer our own prayers! As we stood, I felt the wind swirling around us, as if the very presence of the Spirit of God was surround the space.
Then Randy called me to the front. "You need to be the one to open the door!"
"Ladies and Gentlemen, We invite you to HOPE!"
