Building Project

Our Vision

As our community grows and our ministries grow, we find it vital to establish a permanent place here in the US that would support this growth. We have a vision to build a place of refuge and healing for God’s people from all over the world. The truth is, God’s children are aching with the sores and wounds of this world, and are in dire need for the Lord’s house of refuge. We, the mothers and sisters, have each truly tasted and seen the healing of the Lord’s house in our own lives, in different and unique ways, and thus want to share this power of healing with all nations.

The Land

By the grace of God, we have found a beautiful and suitable piece of bare land in Casa Grande, AZ, that is in line with our vision. We used all we had saved up over the years to finally purchase this property, and have just installed the fence around the perimeter, the front wall, and the inner private road. We are now preparing to begin extending the utilities to the future location of our first building. We live by a simple principle: whenever we have provision we proceed.

That being said, we need your help!

How You Can Help

For years now we have been working hard to save up for our little city of refuge, with much prayer, much labor, much dedication, and little sleep. We deeply thank all who have been supporting us along the journey; it is by your contributions and generosity that we can build our future home and center for ministry. We are eager to one day welcome you to our little Paradise!

However, we still have a long way to go before we make this vision a reality. We humbly appreciate your prayers and support, and assure you that every gift you offer, whether spiritual or material, will never go unrewarded by our gracious God!
