WHIPPOORWILL RIDGE LOG CHAPEL 

A Second Chances Ministry in the Making

This 133 year old cabin from Tennessee will be coming home to Ivy Jean's Ozark Farmstead in December 2017 to live out the second half of her life as a Little Log Chapel in the woods; The Whippoorwill Ridge Log Chapel.                    Just as God intended it to be All Along.
Jeremiah 29 : 11; "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

                                  Information on how you can bless this building fund and ministry is located at the bottom of this page. Thank You!                                                            In Exodus 25:1-9 we see where God prompts Moses to ask people to give willingly to the building of the House of the LORD 

The Story:    September 22, 2017  was the first time I ever laid my eyes and my heart on this little cabin on the left. She comes from deep in the rurals of southern west Tennessee. I didn't find the Cabin, the Cabin found Me!            But God started this journey. He started it way back in December 2002 on a crisp winter day as I was walking this 10 acre rough cedar glade hillside that would soon become Ivy Jean's Ozark Farmstead; My Home.

At the edge of the woods just up the hill from the creek is a beautiful ridge of dark volcano culture rocks where the big hard wood trees grow deep and spread their limbs high with great movement.  And as I sat on this one large rock in total awe of this inspiring yet peaceful view I heard a still small voice inside my head say "Take off your shoes girl you're walking on Holy Ground." I continued to listen and observe in silence and that's when I knew I was to build a little log chapel right there on that spot. It was to be an old cabin that needed a second chance, just like a lot of us who need second chances in life too. 

Our God is a God of second, third, four and more chances. He never gives up on us!  So this is a second chance rescue log cabin for Christ. It  will stand proud again, proud to be a place of peace and rest for others, Just as Christ rescues us and gives us peace and rest for our souls, then sends us out to serve others!

The Whippoorwill Ridge Log Chapel mission statement is:                     ' Restoring the past so as to preserve the future by creating a place for folks to connect to the Creator through His creations.'

This picture on the right is a similar visual of what the original log cabin  will look like once it is re-erected and given a lot of TLC! (tender loving care)!          As she stands now, she's rough from years of wear, tear, neglect, over used and underappreciated....many of us can relate. But She will be a fine house of the Lord and will bring Glory and Peace and Rest to our Souls! Matthew 11:28-30

I want to say Thank You to another generous anonymous donor for giving to the building fund of The Whippoorwill Ridge Log Chapel!

I'm so humbled and honored to see this kind of faith and generosity from others for this mission that God began back in December 2002, but now in 2017 is making it happen.  God's purposes always come about in His time ! The bible says that He will have the rocks to cry out if needed!  And then we see that He even uses humble little dirt clod servants like me and you too!                       Thank You so much!  Exodus 35:4-29 God speaks to Moses of willing hearts giving offerings to build God's. tabernacle
