A General Store, Spiritual Retreat Center, and Farmstead, in the Making
We are on a continuous quest to find meaning in life. We long for the simple life; a life that is honest, built on integrity, harmony, peace, community, and stewardship, and a special place where we can continue to love and thank God for showing us HIS goodness. We believe in the value of family and hard work, no matter what that may look like, as we continue to build our ministry’s farmstead & Christian retreat center (still in the making) named CharO’s Hummingbird Farm & Spiritual Retreat Center. Our vision is based on the model of social equality in line with Proverbs 31:8-9 “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy.“
In this context our primary focuses are: agriculture to provide food for the poor, agriculture as therapy, and learning center, and a healing retreat center for the weary, lost, those facing adversity, and individuals seeking and addiction free lifestyle. In addition, we are focused on education for well-being and social concerns to build awareness toward positive community change. Furthermore, our plans include a cultural center offering films, lectures, and to showcase any form of art designed to uplift the spirit. We envision a thriving community where we also provide employment to people in need of care and support. This is a manifested community we intend to call home. CharlotteO Ministries’general store was designed to support some of these efforts as we continue to secure donations and specialized funding to see this vision come to fruition.
We embrace CharO’s Hummingbird Farm & Spiritual Retreat Center to be a place where you enjoy a healthy meal, take spiritual walks, attend a workshop, spend a week to rejuvenate or heal from addictions, or simply a place you may choose to visit often.
We appreciate your blessings, guidance, and friendly suggestions as we muddle through all that we still have yet to do to accomplish this significant goal.
Thank you for joining us on this journey!
The CharlotteO Team!
