Getting Ready for the Next Phase

This first week in May has been a time of planning and preparation in the Twelve Tribes of Israel Prayer Garden.  The welcome rain gave all the garden crew an opportunity to rest their planting muscles before starting on the next phase.  This has been a week for walking through the garden, getting a feel for the rest of the tribes, marking new pathways and bedding areas, and making choices about permanent features in the landscape.  In the days and weeks ahead, several things will change in the garden:

  • A threshing floor arbor will be built in the tribe of Ephraim
  • A bridge will be built connecting Asher to the rest of the garden
  • Stone steps and a retaining wall will be installed in the tribe of Reuben
  • A water feature will be added to the tribe of Manasseh
  • And so much more!

And, of course, there will be lots of new trees, shrubs, and flowers planted throughout the garden!

Even now, with just a fraction of the garden completed, the Spirit of the Father is so strong!  Of course, from the very beginning of this adventure, God’s people have walked and prayed over and through every part of this place.  It is truly a sanctified piece of earth, and I am blessed to be a part of it.  I can’t begin to express my thanksgiving to all those who have sowed into this garden with time, money, plants and prayers.  And even if you can’t be here to experience the garden in person, I will continue to post pictures so you can enjoy what God is doing in Corinth, Texas.

Shabbat Shalom.

    Dear Pam,
    What an encouragement these photos are. Many of us so long to be part and it is true pictures are worth so much more than words in drawing us in to be part. Thank you for your faithfulness in remembering to share with us out here on the web. The gardens look more beautiful with each passing day, yet when I see these I also see them in a few years with the trees grown and people walking in their shade, praying and giving glory to God.
    Bless you and all your workers!

    I just wanted to say that I have been following the posts from the beginning and every time I read about the garden and the Global Spheres building I feel God’s spirit on me and a longing to be there helping. Through the pictures I feel like I am coming home. It is a blessing every time I get a new post from you.

    Thank you and God Bless!


  3. You are right, Pam. The Spirit of God is all over even the pictures of this beautifully and carefully placed garden. I felt His Spirit as soon as I opened the page. Thank you so much for sharing with us who cannot come in person. I pray we will be able to visit sometime. Your work and intimacy with the Lord is a great blessing to me. God bless you always, Barbara

    I plan to come up there a week before the conference. Would There be an opportunity to work in the garden while I am there. I would love to, if it is possible.

    I am really amazed in what you all are doing. I’m willing to help in anyway I can.

    Thank you for all your hard work.

    May God continue to bless you and Keep you in His care!
