Never Give Up on Your Dreams, Cause You're Never Too Old To Achieve Them

Several years ago I began to think that I would never have the opportunity to live the dream that God placed in my heart. I kept asking God to show me through my wife, Kat, what ministry He wanted me to do. I expected it would involve an inner-city ministry or even a water front church plant at the Lake of the Ozarks. What God revealed to me through Kat as our farm which we have named Restoration Farm.

Since moving down to the Ozarks Kat and I have been humbled by how God has blessed us here. It is interesting how God will give you a dream and after you surrender it back to Him will lead you to accomplishing the dream. We still can't believe how our dream has come together and how God continues to increase our dream.

Back in the fall we had the opportunity to lead a house group which still meets each Monday evening. Beginning in February we will be leading another group which we will call Discovery. Also on Mondays I meet with another guy and we hope to invite other men to join us.

We have set a goal of helping 30 people in the coming year to be restored. Restored emotionally, physically or spiritually. Restoration Farm is a place for wounded, broken and discouraged pastors, missionaries, couples and wounded warriors to come and get restored by the Master Healer. Kat and my job in all of that is to be here and provide a pace of safety for the Holy Spirit to do His work.

In May we have the honor to host Danny Daniels (http://www.danny-daniels.com/bio.html) an internationally known songwriter, worship leader & educator. Over the last thirty years he has had over 100 songs published & recorded by Maranatha! Music, Vineyard Music, Sony Music, TIME/LIFE and many more. He most recently contributed a song to Jeremy Camp's Billboard #2 Top Contemporary Christian album, "Carried Me: The Worship Project". Hope you enjoy the following:
