Sanctuary Ministries at
firstname.lastname@example.org to request a complete written description
about the organization of and plans for the future development of
expanding this much needed ministry. SHELTER needs other Christian
owned B&B's to come on-board as facility providers and encouragers.
SHELTER needs some individual, church, or other organization to
assist in further development of this ministry and establishing a
foundation for it.
Ann & Mike had many guests
at Trinity Hills Farm B&B Country Inn that we owned and operated for
nine years. Health problems led to financial problems that forced us
to sell out. But, God wanted us to continue to serve, so He set a
series of things in motion that brought us here to what we call "Aire
Castle Inn B&B".
We formed "SHELTER Sanctuary
Ministries" long before we knew we would ever have a place to make
it a reality. Our plan after losing Trinity Hills Farm, was to buy a
nice home in a subdivision somewhere and have one extra room to
bring Pastor Couples in for a sabbatical retreat, but God had other
plans. So, here we are!
Couples" are our primary "target" group, but not the only persons
that we seek to help. Our goal is to "catch them before they fall",
encouraging married couples to recognize that there are "three"
persons in their marriage, not just two. By encouraging in this way,
we see couples come to the realization that the Holy Spirit is real
and always there to guide them.
1. The ministry
seeks to serve any married couples, or individuals in any Christian
Ministry from any Christian denomination who are really burned out,
tired to exhaustion, spiritually or emotionally wounded, or even
displaced (maybe fired from ministry) and needing to seek the
guidance of the Holy Spirit.
2. It seeks to bring married couples who almost chose divorce, but
were strong enough to seek counseling and are on the road to
recovering from this experience, to come here for a "celebration of
3. It seeks to bring Married Military Couples that have been apart
for a long time and suffered in their marriage, possibly considered
divorce, for them to have a few days to get to know each other
Each couple may
contribute as much as they can afford to pay, to help with expenses,
but if they cannot afford to pay at all, we will take them anyway. A
few caring & concerned individuals, most being previous guests have
given a little along the way to help with this ministry and we, Mike
& Ann absorb the rest. If SHELTER guests are financially able to pay
in part, or however, we expect them to do as led by God's Holy
Spirit. If these guests
cannot afford to pay anything, that is fine. We take them anyway.
Otherwise, SHELTER Sanctuary Ministries does not solicit for
contributions, but rather depends upon the Holy Spirit to move those
who choose to contribute to this ministry, as they see fit.
