Oh glorious day! After five years of envisioning, planning, and construction we have opened the doors of the Women and Family Development Center at Star of Hope’s Cornerstone Community℠ transformational campus!
It has been so rewarding to see our community come together and support this project through their financial giving, volunteerism and prayer. We could not have done it without your help in all three of these areas.
For those of us who have been closely engaged in the construction details, it is wonderful to see the reaction of others when they see Cornerstone Community℠ for the first time. Not only do they see the beauty of the architecture, the landscaping and the décor, but they experience the light, the joy and the grace and mercy of God’s presence. “There is dignity here” as one recent visitor, who hails from a poverty-stricken country, said.
Cornerstone Community℠ is a place where someone who is hurting and in need can come and say “this is the first day of the rest of my life.” A new beginning that can only be brought about by a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. And that is at the heart of all that we do at Star of Hope.
We know that when a person unites with Jesus Christ, they begin a joyful life. No matter what happens after that, they never again face the struggles of life alone.
When you visit, and I hope you do, you will see a unique community. As far as we know, there is nowhere else like Cornerstone Community℠ caring so deeply for so many women and families at one time. I think you will smile and rejoice for those finding grace and peace in this place.
And if you haven’t already done so, I hope you become a part of what we are doing at Cornerstone Community℠, whether it is through your time, talent, treasure or prayer, and that God blesses you richly in the process.
