For fifty years, God has continually shown His faithfulness to Sheridan House. He is the great Provider, even when we may doubt. In 2001, after seven years of searching for 40 acres of new property (and basically giving up on finding it), a friend of Sheridan House found 57 acres for sale! Each acre was $500,000, coming to a total of about $29,000,000. We offered only $50,000 per acre, and ridiculously, the owner countered with a price of $53,000! Sold!
After the initial joy wore off two hours later, Bob Barnes blurted out, “We just committed to pay $3,000,000! What were we thinking?! Sheridan House only has $10,000!” Paying this off seemed like an impossible feat. But not for God.
