George and I wanted to open our lovely home in the country to welcome people who could really do with a fun weekend, people who would not normally be able to afford a country house hotel.
Using money made from the bronze and a lot of elbow grease from ourselves and friends we converted our empty, leaking top story into a really nice bright apartment.
We feel this is God's idea and He is sending all the help as it is needed.
Just as the essentials were finished and the money was used up we received a really nice commission to sculpt Hurricane Fly life sized and we were able to buy the towels and bed linen to host a group of 20 ladies from Ballymun. They are from a Christian group who are getting people off drugs by God's power and helping them rebuild their lives.
We have welcomed them again twice since and each time they come there is such fun in the house and everything is left perfectly clean and tidy when they go.
Sean and Thelma are the leaders and they themselves have left a life of addiction and crime so they know first hand the power of God to heal and restore lives.
In time as more people catch the vision it would be great to expand to the basement (any shovels welcome), youth groups and special needs.
We would love to have a nice warm place where cancer patients could come with their families to talk things through and get away from hospital for a while.
A huge THANKYOU to all my friends who have invested in a bronze sculpture, I hope you like what we are doing with your money.
May you know the love and joy that you have helped to share,
Love Siobhan and George.
