GOD, our Father, who we rest in, answer to, follow and stand in awe of.
To Room for Dreams, who were the catalyst behind Room for Restoration and whose selfless support for the kingdom of God, even when things happened that were not planned, gave us encouragement beyond words.
The men at the father’s prison that we were able to talk with, who helped steer us in the right direction and who allowed us the priviledge of speaking with the inmates to announce the nomination for the first Room for Restoration.
To the men and women who sat in our first meeting with support, prayer, confirmations and possible future connections. It was a necessary moment in the momentum of our vision.
To our possible connection that will provide us a building for storage, work, marketing and inventory…..WE ARE BELIEVING FOR IT!
To our nominee, his father and his mother, who understood the value of connection and never hesitated to give us information, remain available and support the mission from the get go…promoting Room for Restoration at every chance. We are blessed to have seen such a powerful gift from the father to the son, bring about such a powerful start to a new journey of love and forgiveness.
