A purchase contract is in place!

Great news. We placed a contract on the property yesterday and got the word today that the owners accepted!
God is moving Heaven and earth for the women that we are planning to help and I'm believing Him for the financing to make this happen. No matter how HUGE this project feels to me, it's not about me, it's about God and about the women He's calling me to help. What seems like a mountain to me is merely a grain of sand to God.

Our closing date is August 30th, 2006 and we need donations. Any donations, of any size, would be deeply appreciated. Also, we need fundraisers who can hit the ground running and start raising money. Car washes, change drives, e-bay auctions, garage sales... now is the time for all of us to get creative. I'm going to be creating a separate blog within the next few days with more details on the property and the project, 501(c)(3) info and several ways in which people can contribute, including PayPal and Amazon buttons to donate online.
If you want to contribute by check, please make checks payable to:
Grace Bay Charities
PO Box 383
Sutherland VA 23885

Please keep this project in your prayers, contribute in whatever ways God leads you to, and pass the word on to as many people as possible. Imagine what a testimony this project is going to be to the greatness of God when people see how it came to be.

Stay tuned!

HI SYD, I would like to have more information on the SKM Signature Prayer Shawl. I would love to knit one for a friend. She is one one of the girls in my knitting group that is having issues with her liver. I am praying for her every night.
