MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR to each of you. We are so blessed to be loved by a God who wants to have a relationship with us and sent His Son to be the payment for our sins.

Our Most Urgent Need

A new dishwasher is our most urgent need. Currently we have to wash all the dishes by hand and then put them in a sanitizer. Unfortunately, the sanitizer has to be repaired often with make-shift parts that last only a short period as parts are no longer available. This is very inefficient and labor-intensive. The dual-dish rack dishwasher we need is made entirely of stainless steel with unique upper and lower spray arm systems which complete the cleaning in minutes. The pump purging system eliminates soil and chemical carryover during the rinse cycle. The cost, including installation, is approximately $5,000.

  9. Painting of building 8 was completed by volunteers from Eagle Christian Church and Rock Harbor Christian Church. This included repairs to the outside, preparation painting and removal of debris and an old shed and debris. Additionally, one shed was also painted to match the house. Thanks and praises to all.

Focus on the Family

Wayne and Jerry

The Dakes decided to spend their active retirement years serving at Intermountain Christian Camp near Fairfield, ID. Eighteen years later they moved to the Village (in October 2011). Jesus called Wayne home on January 7, 2018. After spending most of his adult years as a carpenter Jerry says he is now helping to build mansions in heaven awaiting her arrival. This couple, married for more than 64 years, have 2 married daughters, 7 married grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.
