Not long after my encounter with Sharon and Andi, someone asked me what my big dream would be for the hurting and hopeless women and children in this area. The answer came easily. “
I want to build a farm,” I told him. “A safe place for women to come after they are released from jail.I want to build a farm,” I told him. “A safe place for women to come after they are released from jail. A place where they can work on skills they desperately need, so they can start life over with their families and be contributing citizens to their communities. A place where women wouldn’t have to trade favors to meet their basic needs. A place where children can reunite with their mothers and learn the tools necessary to become healthy families.
This is the Smoky Mountain Dream Center!
As an example to those whom we will minister, we will be modeling debt-free living. Therefore, anything we build or service we provide needs to be paid for before we launch this ministry. Currently, we are preparing a budget with the Assemblies of God U.S. Missions team and are actively raising funds to meet that budget.
