Welcome to The Sanctuary

Brothers & Sisters,

I trust this letter finds you in good health and strong faith in our Lord & King Jesus Christ.  I write to you today to ask for your help.  The Sanctuary project is in need of both financial donations and physical help. 

It has been a long year of trials and tribulations, successes and failures.  As we move forward in 2016 we have had to reevaluate our goals and to see if we are hearing from God correctly.  It has been a strenuous learning process about construction, helping wayward kids, helping adults claiming Christ, business ventures, and our own Pilgrim’s Path.

Sometimes having an open heart to help people is very costly on many levels.  In this world today we have learned the hard way that in to help people of the world you must succumb to the ways of the world to be legally eligible to help people, thus you become stained by the world.  That requires massive financial abilities which we do not have, nor do we desire to compromise God and His Word in order to succeed with our plans.  There are many so called Christian schools and camps that do what we wanted to do, but the cost is in the millions per year and it is debatable whether or not they are truly successful and being part of the soul winning process.

I have had to repent of my lofty goals and ask God to steer this project to what He desires, not what I thought He wanted me to do. I have been running ministries for 16 years and sometimes I get it right, this time I missed the mark.  Thus we have come up with a new plan and direction for The Sanctuary Project.

CHANGES:

1)      We will not be taking in wayward kids anymore.  To do this it requires the world to send in CPS, doctors prescribing drugs, and shrinks quoting Freud instead of the Word. Only God can save a child, PERIOD.

2)      We will not be building anymore 2 man cabins unless we have the donation money first.  The current and all new cabins will be used for Christian retreats.

3)      The 80KW generator is up for sale, it is too big and too costly to operate.

4)      We will no longer allow non-Christians to rent space or cabins on a monthly basis, this has proven detrimental and costly to us.  For those who rent on a daily basis and break the rules, they will not be allowed to stay another day and will be barred from the campground.

5)      The paintball project is cancelled.

6)      The hunter’s cabin project is cancelled.

NEW FOCUS:

1)      First and foremost we will open the church for fellowship in early spring.

2)      2nd we will use the church building as a Covenant School for homeschooling families during the weekdays.

3)      We have built a corral, chicken coop, and pig barn. The chicken coop is operational and producing organic eggs.  In the spring we will purchase a sow and bull to produce pigs for sale and consumption. We plan on finding mountain trail horses and/or mules for trail riding.

4)      The cook shack is 80% completed. We need to sell the big Garland commercial oven/grill and purchase a smaller grill.  And the wiring needs to be completed.  This unit will start with 2 days a week cooking Mexican food one day and Italian food the next.  The menus will be simple and limited to 2-4 dishes.  In rural Montana we are lacking restaurants, thus traveling cook shacks do very well.

5)      We will open the campground up to born again churches who wish to have retreats but could never afford them because of the commercialization of most “Christian” campgrounds or retreat centers.  Our belief is no standard charges; let us know what you and God worked out for a fee.  That way small and poor churches can actually come here!

6)      We need to cultivate some of our land to growing food for consumption, canning, and farmer’s markets sales. 

7)      We will be doing seminars and boot camps for evangelism and other Christian issues.

8)      We will be looking to grow a family Christian community here.  Where families move onto the property and work in a community agrarian environment for the Kingdom.

NEEDS:

1)      We need cash flow for all these projects.  Please donate via PayPal @ administration@alpha-omega-outreach.com.  Or contact Steve @ 406-493-5274 for bank transfer of larger donations. 

2)      We need to build the solar/battery backup system.  This will run about $10,000. If this is your business, consider donating a system to us. It is our #1 priority to sell the big generator, install a solar/battery bank with smaller generators charging when needed.

3)      We need families to consider moving here.  Your faith in the Lord and your desire to work for the Kingdom are the requirements, all else we will teach. 

4)      We need the following donations in livestock: Pigs, chickens, horses, mules, and cows.

5)      We need the following donations in materials: solar panels, 6volt deep cell batteries, small generators, construction materials for building buildings, hay, gravel for roads, railroad ties for trails.

6)       We need the following labor volunteers: farming, wranglers, builders, trail cutters, loggers, and general labor.  If you have skill sets already great, if you desire to learn great!

7)       We need the following spiritual volunteers: teachers for the home school project, elders for the church, Bible Class teachers, Children teachers, music leaders and teacher.

8)      We need people who wish to work in the cook shack and/or take over the cook shack operations.

9)      I am probably forgetting something, so if you just want to help, you are welcome.

I am on the road on the west coast preaching so contact me via phone @ 406-493-5274 or email me at the road email: TheSanctuaryMT@gmail.com.  I pray you will help and come visit us or stay with us this next year.  May God bless you and your family.

In Christ,

Steven Barry/Director Alpha-Omega-Outreach, The Sanctuary Project

The Sanctuary is a brand new project being undertaken by Alpha Omega Outreach.
 
The goals here are simple;
  • Provide a sanctuary for Christians to escape from the world and fellowship with True believers.
  • Provide a sanctuary for Christians who have lost their jobs & homes due to the economy.  Thus providing them with a place to stay with Biblical counseling, temporally, until they are back on their feet.
  • Provide a place where youth can learn the value of hard agrarian work ethics and learn about the simple life in God's Kingdom.
 
Director Steven Barry and the family of God, welcome you to come to one of the most beautiful landscapes that God created, Superior Montana.
 
Here you will have the time to pray and worship God, so that you may learn and rest before returning to the front lines of the spiritual war.
