Tonight was the town Planning Board Meeting for "My Fathers House".
Thank you for your prayers. We went in truth with a sincere heart to explain our plan to help help people who are struggling and we were met by the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth.
The meeting was meant primarily for us to present to the Planning Board our plan for parking, drainage and changes to the property. It is also to hear the concerns of the property owners that live within 300 feet as to how our plans might effect their property. According to Masslive there were about 50 people in attendance.

The room was full and so people had to stand in the hallway to be part of the hearing. I was grateful that so many people came out for the meeting. It was my hope to meet everyone and answer all of their questions and concerns. Those who spoke asked good questions in the hearing and many continued to ask after the meeting in the hall. We have agreed to meet with the concerned residence at a separate informational meeting later in the month if they desire.
No decisions were made tonight and the Board has asked us to consider applying for a variance that would allow us to turn the property into a lodging house. Either way the decision has been continued to their October 4th meeting.
I am learning that it can be difficult to be of service to your brother and please everyone. Many people opposed Jesus until those same people needed Him. He came to save us all whether we agree with Him or not.
I know we are doing as our Lord would want us to do. He said so in Matthew 25:40 "Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."
I am honored to be a servant the Lord.
