Sunday Afternoon Visit

On Sunday after church we took a lovely ride through Maryland countryside to visit M.'s parents at their newest volunteer station. The campus where they now live and volunteer was an old college back in the late 1800's. The grounds are lovely and the buildings quaint with lots of gorgeous views and quirky architectural surprises. We enjoyed a delicious late lunch in the dining hall (the cook left us raid the left-overs) and then they gave us a tour of the conference center and grounds where groups and individuals come for retreats or to live for various reasons and periods of time. Also located on the grounds are several other ministries and two warehouses - one of which receives handcrafted items from around the world to ship out as well as resell in the little shop there. The other warehouse is a huge one with its' own railroad siding that packs and then distributes items to the world wherever natural disasters occur. The campus is really quite a place - filled with ministries and service. We so enjoyed our visit and look forward to going back - to visit again as well as to do some volunteering in one of the warehouses.

What a beautiful place to live and serve the Lord in ministry! Does the campus have a site in the internet?
