John Miller's Conference Notes
Heart-warming news from Pastor John Miller of
I just came back from a fruitful trip to Argentina, tho Peachy was not able to accompany me.
You will remember we shared a word on Hebron, Achsah & Caleb when we were there.
"Judges 1:15 And she said to him, Give me a blessing. For you have given me a south land. Give me also springs of water. And Caleb gave her the upper springs and the lower springs. "
Little did we imagine that it would soon become a reality for us!
God has opened a door of blessing for us and we have just put a downpayment on a beautiful land from a bank Foreclosure, at a VERY cheap price, about 1 hour north of Atlanta in the mountains.
It was a house built in 2005 that burnt down in November 2009 - so it has been "sanctified with fire".
The land is 17 acres, has 3 creeks, and 4 springs (2 upper and 2 lower), like the land Caleb gave to Acsah.
That is why we have called the land "Hebon Springs".
It is a partially developed land, has an asphalt road access up the hill to a large cement slab, complete with sewer, and a spring-fed water well.
There are still 2 useable thick cement walls standing and a small cement bunker/ hurricane shelter.
So far we put a small mobile home on it and have the electricity, internet and telephone already installed.
The idea for now is a little house for rest/retreat/hunting for the kids.
As God provides, we will be able to develop it as a retreat, children’s camp and/or Bible Institute.
Maybe as the "Quinta" one day? We do not know yet!
There are many beautiful white marble stones & boulders in the land, as it is very close to a major Marble quarry in Jasper, Georgia.
Peachy is always picking up large and small marble stones to bring back..
In Asia they would be worth a bundle!
There is a nearby town called "Talking Rock" and the access road to the land is called "Damascus Road"!!
It is nearby to a large lake... simply paradise!!!
It is full of deer, wild turkey, even a few non-aggressive black bear!
I have been working hard on the land these past 2 months, clearing and hauling away all the burnt house rubble, finding the buried water, electric and phone lines, installing rain drainage pipes etc. etc. to make it liveable.
Here is the link to see the video of "Hebron Springs"
Feel free to share with Silas and church family.
In Christ's Love,
