We all know that when God closes a door, He opens a window. And He is doing just that with Abigail. For the last 7 years, we have been blessed to use the building of our Crisis Center/Clinic without any charge. I bless the people who have allowed us to use this facility all these years. But they now need their building for another purpose. And the Lord is moving us to another location.
I was not thrown into shock when I received the news. My spirit immediately leapt with anticipation of what God was going to do! I thought of our doctor and wanting to keep him in employment. So I started praying. I felt led to talk talk with the president of the Hope Center and see if perhaps we could use a small room just for the doctor until we decide where to relocate the Clinic. When I met with her, I explained the situation and asked if she felt a room in the Hope Center could be used temporarily. She began to explain to me that she started praying a year ago, asking God to put a clinic in the Hope Center. I was FLOORED!!!!! I literally began to cry and we prayed, thanking the Lord for opening doors for Both of us!!!! He had given both of us the desires of our hearts.
I immediately began the construction that would be necessary to have offices for our doctor, dentist, counselor, and a warehouse for medicines. All of this construction required building walls, running new electricity, closing doors, and opening new doors. And all happened within three weeks! Talk about moving and shaking!!!!! All of the construction is finished and I will be moving everything this week. We will begin to see patients
