Future Hope

world Saviour

Generations saved.

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21 KJV


Mighty Chorus

sparrow's song

Montana and Susanna joined the community in rebuilding the chapel as a first step in their new life together.

“In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.

The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”
Zephaniah 3:16, 17 KJV


orchard pruning

After the harvest, Susanna and other workers pruned the apple trees in the Belmont Brothers’ orchard. Pruning helped the trees stay healthy and produce more fruit by allowing light to filter through the leaves.

“For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled”
Colossians 1:19-21 KJV

How Great Thou Art: Astounded

joyful noise

Spreading good news.

Shine Like the Stars
(How Great Thou Art)

Searching for me,
unfailing, gentle Healer,
he set my feet upon the solid ground.
His grace abounds; the cross—forgiveness purchased,
I’ll spread good news, astounded by His love.
