Ministry Update January 2017
Dear Friends of the Ministry,
Are you familiar with the phrase full circle? To me it implies, obviously, completion.
But, it also implies that you are taken back to a place where you may have started and that work has been completed. Let me explain further.
If you remember, I shared my Tribute story with you on the Clara's House website about my great grandmother, Clara. (It was her that my two ministries were founded).
I also shared with you how God gave me the vision for the ministry; that of being through a dream. And, that original dream involved the location of my great grandmother's house in Saylorsburg. Upon actually starting the ministry, we located it in Peckville, but I must say that I always felt that it would not be a permanent location. For the 17 years we were in Peckville, my occassional dreams would always involve a different location, that of my great grandmother's house. And, this is where the "full circle" concept comes in! The Clara's House ministries are now in Saylorsburg.........in the house where Clara was born and raised!!!
Our property is dedicated to doing ministry. This property was established in 1872 by my great great uncle who was a Pastor. I believe that I am the 6th generation in this home. I hope he is proud of me as well as Mom Mom might be! I even wonder if they prayed for their future generations (meaning me) in hopes of building a legacy, but also in hopes of building a ministry for God's service. I hope to ask them one day in Heaven!!
I also wonder if my future generations will be here one day..........
