Thank you to all the friends and supporters who came out to celebrate with us as we dedicated the Emmanuel Cottage! It was a joyful morning as we reflected on how God provided all that was necessary to bring His vision to fruition.
We anticipate welcoming our first guests later this summer or early fall. Just a few more items need to fall into place, then we'll open the doors to all who will come.
Delivery of our first cottage took place on Monday, April 24th. The cottage was safely placed on its foundation and made ready for the next phase of preparations.
We are thrilled to report that our first cottage is in the works! Watch here for updates on the cottage to be in place and ready to furnish in April 2017.
Shepherd's Rest Ministry is partnering with Gospel Bracelet Ministry to spread the word about Gospel Bracelets. Why use a Gospel Bracelet as a witnessing tool?
1. It keeps you focused on the subject because you follow the colors of the bracelet.
2. It insures the availability of important Scriptures in an order that is easy for a seeker to follow.
3. It allows the seeker to review the message again and again. It serves as a beautiful reminder of your witness.
4. It provides a visual to underscore the message of salvation.
