Brand New Landscaping ! ! !

Vineyard front 2Vineyard front 1As of July, 2014, Mike Hand of Summit Landscaping, working with the City of Pensacola, finally was able to complete the construction project done on our street, 12th Avenue, and OUR YARD ! They did a beautiful job ! Many Thanks to all who worked so hard to make this possible. Working with Road’s Inc., the construction company that was hired by the City of Pensacola to complete this project has been AWESOME ! ! !

We have since added a timer water system to keep all the plants, grasses, and trees “happy”.  It’s mid-September.  They look great, don’t they!

We have some Great News!

Chairman of Martha’s Vineyard Board of Director: Nix Daniel, is also on the board of Christian Ministries Inc., the “Mother-Ship” non-profit agency that is literally guiding Martha’s Vineyard into our own non-profit status.  Christian Ministries truly  believes in this vision called Martha’s Vineyard, a place where family members from out of town can come and stay.  These families stay at no cost for as long as they need to.  We are on our 366 house guest!  They have been with us from just a few days to nearly 6 months!  Martha’s Vineyard is based on Romans 8:28, “And we know that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose”.

We provide not only a safe, home-like setting and clean bed, but someone to talk to, pray with if needed, food, laundry facilities, and a “Welcome Friend” feeling when you stay here.  We have had families from car accident victims, boating, gun shots, motorcycle accidents, heart attacks and strokes etc.

We have discovered that adults need a different kind of caring.   Steve Rouse ( his wife Martha is whom this home is named for) said it best,  “This is SO much better than a cold hotel room any day”.

I am borrowing a saying I heard from a pastor friend of ours a long time ago, but it still applies today.  We are all just one beggar, telling another beggar where there is Bread.

Love, Always in His Name!

A Whole New Look to Martha’s Vineyard!

A Whole New Look to Martha's Vineyard!

With the completion of a new circular driveway that takes all our houseguest traffic off the roadway, and a beautiful palmtree with a soon-to-be sitting area in front of the Vineyard, we are in the final stages of completing the landscaping that will complete this total overall project! We were able to re-direct the ramp in front of the Vineyard that was built by “The Word” Chapter from Pace, FL. They have volunteers that join them in building these ramps. Our Christian Motorcycle chapter group, Maranatha Riders joined them and came back to build our porch too! What a great group of people! We have to thank also Summit Landscaping, Jim Henson, Glen Strange, our home church, First Baptist, and so many others who made this project possible. It looks GREAT!

It’s a whole new day!

Let’s just say Martha’s Vineyard is going to take on a whole new look! As of two months ago, Christian Ministries, a non-profit organization is going to come along side of Martha’s Vineyard of Pensacola, assist us in attaining our non-profit status, and allow any tax-deductible donations be made to them for the Vineyard until we get our 501-C3 status! They are literally going to be our “Mother-ship” and guidance counselor until we get through this process. Because of them, they are also off-setting my salary at Baptist Hospital to allow me to go full-time here at the Vineyard to attain this! How awesome is this! Up until now, It has taken my salary to keep the Vineyard going. But, praise God, I now have the time to get this ministry solvent for generations to come.

We have served so far:
207 house guests. We currently have 3 families. 2 cancer patients being treated for chemotherapy/radiation treatments. They will be with us for 5 to 8 weeks. Melissa and Carl. We have Sandy also, whose son, Trey suffered a brain stem injury from a dirt bike accident. He is at Baptist Hospital right now. For how long, we don’t know.
Where would these people be if it were not for Martha’s Vineyard of Pensacola?
Melissa was sharing with me she has no family, is from out of town just over 100 miles from here. Carl lived just over 60 miles from here too. Same story. No family either. Both needed the chemotherapy/radiation treatment.

Dennis and I just want this ministry to live for the next generation. We have already promised to give the house to the ministry. If you want to give anything to see that this ministry does continue to grow–and believe me we need to, you can give your tax-deductible donation to:
Christian Minisries,Inc.
