Announcing “Anna’s Adventures”
Dear Friends of Canaan Land,
Did you know there are over 12 million widows living in the U.S.? Based on biblical instruction to care for widows (I Tim 5:3), we have felt led to start a new ministry at Canaan Land for these special ladies. These ladies will enjoy a “mountaintop" experience called “Anna’s Adventures”. Anna’s story is in the Bible (Luke 2:36-38). She was a widow for 84 years and exemplified devotion, prayer, and faithfulness to God. When Jesus’ parents first brought Him to the temple, Anna was honored by God as the first woman to give testimony that Jesus was the Savior of the world. Anna could be our example as we go on our “Anna’s Adventures”.
We will host week-long retreats where ladies can enjoy fun activities and fellowship. Lodging will be in Cana, the former historic hunting lodge of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, Bethel (a single-story 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin), and other cabins on the campus. The adventures will include crafts, gem mining, train ride, electric boat ride on Lake Toxaway, movie nights, games, Bible study, putt putt golf, comedy night, singing, bonfires, nature hikes and other fun adventures.
We are praying this endeavor will be successful. We would appreciate your prayers and if you are able, we would appreciate your volunteer or financial support.
We would like to accomplish the following projects before “Anna’s Adventures” starts next fall.
1. Prepare the cabins for the ladies (safety hand rails, window repairs, heating, etc)
2. Install benches along the paths
3. Reroof and insulate the birdhouses
4. Replace the floor in Fairhaven
5. Replace siding on the Lodge
6. Complete Hawks Nest expansion
How about planning an “Anna’s Adventures” retreat
for the special ladies in your church?
Joyfully in Christ,
George and Nancy Corbett
