Breaking New Ground
On a beautiful fall afternoon many gathered on the site of our NEW HOME to participate in a meaningful and vibrant ceremony. Banyan
made history and many dreams come true when we broke NEW ground! Over 500 people - community members, donors, supporters, and partners – shared in the celebration of this milestone in Banyan’s journey.
For me it was a bit surreal—a day that we have been talking about and planning for many years had finally arrived.
It was a day of many, many smiles and lots of laughter. Blessings for our children, giving thanks for God’s provision for this great gift, and blessing the neighborhood that we are so much a part of. The kids said their favorite part was the food trucks, the bounce house, playing soccer, the dancing, the shovels, the dirt….
I think Maricruz said it well with her closing thought:
Having a place to go is: HOME
Having a community is: FAMILY
Having both is: A BLESSING
Banyan is a wonderful blessing, and we are so grateful for everyone’s part to make this dream come true!
