This site is dedicated to you, fellow pilgrim, brother and sister, as you search for and hold onto the promises given by the God of all hope.

May joy and peace deepen as you trust the God who does not lie,

the One who has set us free,

Who gives us all we need for today, and

Who is making all things new.


Live in great expectation!


May all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you (Psalm 40:16a).

  1. I am so excited about this site. Who knows that maybe God has led you to do this “for such a time as this.” Who knows what the near future may hold for us Children of God. Will we be persecuted? Will we be banned from attending church as we have always done? The USA and the world are increasingly hostile to Christians and think we are a nuisance to their agendas. We so need to encourage each other in these last days until Jesus comes to take us home. hank you for being obedient to God’s leading on creatng this site.

  2. Dear Elaine,

    I visited Berlin earlier this month, driving from Michigan back to coastal South Carolina, and became intrigued by the beauty of both the people and the surrounding landscape. After returning home, I started google searches to find out more and stumbled upon your blog. I’ve been keeping up with it since. May God continue to bless you on this mission.

    In Christ’s love,

    Cheryl Aden
