As of July, 2014, Mike Hand of Summit Landscaping, working with the City of Pensacola, finally was able to complete the construction project done on our street, 12th Avenue, and OUR YARD ! They did a beautiful job ! Many Thanks to all who worked so hard to make this possible. Working with Road’s Inc., the construction company that was hired by the City of Pensacola to complete this project has been AWESOME ! ! !
We have since added a timer water system to keep all the plants, grasses, and trees “happy”. It’s mid-September. They look great, don’t they!
We have some Great News!
Chairman of Martha’s Vineyard Board of Director: Nix Daniel, is also on the board of Christian Ministries Inc., the “Mother-Ship” non-profit agency that is literally guiding Martha’s Vineyard into our own non-profit status. Christian Ministries truly believes in this vision called Martha’s Vineyard, a place where family members from out of town can come and stay. These families stay at no cost for as long as they need to. We are on our 366 house guest! They have been with us from just a few days to nearly 6 months! Martha’s Vineyard is based on Romans 8:28, “And we know that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose”.
We provide not only a safe, home-like setting and clean bed, but someone to talk to, pray with if needed, food, laundry facilities, and a “Welcome Friend” feeling when you stay here. We have had families from car accident victims, boating, gun shots, motorcycle accidents, heart attacks and strokes etc.
We have discovered that adults need a different kind of caring. Steve Rouse ( his wife Martha is whom this home is named for) said it best, “This is SO much better than a cold hotel room any day”.
I am borrowing a saying I heard from a pastor friend of ours a long time ago, but it still applies today. We are all just one beggar, telling another beggar where there is Bread.
Love, Always in His Name!
