The Lord our God is Always Faithful to Provide
A great many of you have visited or even been residents at our beautiful campus here in the rolling hills of Kentucky. But for the sake of those who haven’t been here, allow me to share all that the Lord has provided for us in the 27 years we have been at this location.
The ministry owns three separate properties. Our main campus houses the Residential Program, consisting of a student center, a chapel, a counseling office building, two shops, four dorms and eight staff residences. This 45-acre spread also has the Cross and Prayer Trail, where countless men have had powerful encounters with God. We also have a large administration building in the town of Dry Ridge which is home to our accounting, HR, donor, customer service and Media Outreach ministries. Our third campus is a small gravel road further out in the country called Peaceful Lane, where we have five more staff houses. Everything is paid for. God has truly blessed us and taken care of us over the years!
This also makes me thankful for Mark Schmucker and our maintenance crew. These hard-working men do everything: carpentry, electrical, plumbing, landscaping, and even overseeing the wastewater treatment plant. God has wonderfully blessed us with property and personnel.
But, as you can imagine, with so many buildings, we are constantly facing problems. One need that has recently come up is to replace the heating and air conditioning unit in the home of Pastor Ed and Karla Buch. This will cost $7,850. Their home also contains a two-bedroom basement apartment where guests stay when visiting our campus. If you are interested in helping to meet this need, you can visit the Donate page on our web site and designate a gift for the HVAC for Staff Housing project.
In other news, we continue to make real progress on our video project, The Overcomers Series. The overarching purpose of this series is to use sermons, documentaries and testimonies to describe and present what the lifestyle of a victorious Christian looks like. It will be the perfect complement to the At the Altar of Sexual Idolatry DVD Curriculum, which is currently being used in men’s groups and prisons across the country. Most of the messages have been filmed; now we’re focused on wrapping up all the Bonus Features that will be included. We appreciate your prayers on behalf of this project.
Finally, I want to celebrate with you what the Lord is doing here at Pure Life in terms of enrollment. We are at full capacity with a waiting list in our Residential and At-Home programs. Meanwhile applications continue to pour in! You have prayed with us for God to send desperate people whom He can save and set free, and He has answered your prayers. The enemy continues to ensnare multitudes with sexual temptation, but God has provided a place where anyone can come who desires freedom!
Thank you so much for all you do in support of our work here at Pure Life Ministries through your prayers and generous financial giving. I feel like I can’t say it enough. We couldn’t do this work without you, and we appreciate you more than we can say.
Steve Gallagher is the Founder and President of Pure Life Ministries. He has dedicated his life to helping men find freedom from sexual sin and leading Christians into the abundant life in God that comes through deep repentance.
