Unseen Ministries, a ministry that helps other ministries have a better online presence has been working with us for many months to re-brand and give us a new fresh look to our website. They have designed a new logo that is fresh and clean too.
They will also help us behind the scenes in the future to handle our business functions more efficiently. They have designed a new form that will be used by fundraisers who are requesting the permission to sell Threads of Hope products for their Fundraisers or Love Projects.
They are folks much younger than most of us who are more knowledgeable about websites than we are. They know the current trends of how people use websites and will help us to catch up to the times. For example, they know that people don’t like to read anymore so they are helping us to present things with more pictures and fewer words.
I am waiting on pics to add. I will post them when I get them.

We started out in September of this year trying to design a two-story building that would have two distinct functions. The first floor would be to house the existing thread store and storage room. The front rooms of the high school are the current home of the Threads Store.
The second floor would be living quarters for the Coltrane family. The roof of that building would be a spot where we can build a shading roof and rails so that area can be used as part of daily living space for homeschooling, hanging laundry, devotion time. The views will be amazing. Outdoor living is the norm here based on the always toasty temperatures.

Then, along came the donation, out of the blue, of the birthing center contents. So as you can image, the direction got changed quickly. The birthing center became the priority to be completed.

Because we have guests that come for a month at a time several times a year, the World Racers.

We have 14 Racers here now. And because the space they use when they are here happens to be rooms of the high school, we are now focused on building that two-story building mentioned above, but using the ground floor for guests and the 2nd floor for Coltranes. We have a spot on the hill picked out for the building already.
