Many of you have been asking for an update and it is way past time that we posted one! -Sorry about that! Here is what we’ve been up to out on the farm! We have moved in and LOVE living out here! It is incredibly peaceful & it feels like home. But there is also an expectancy for what’s to come and for that we are daily having to ask God to give us patience! We of course want to be up and running yesterday but God has us on a slower timetable. So here is what we are doing to keep busy:
-Meeting with a lot of exceptional people ~ teachers, horse experts, event planners, cow experts and friends that are praying for this adventure who want to help in some way! All the meetings are part of the foundation for Arrow Farm. We’re planning the school with excellence. Planning an equestrian program that will benefit the kids on the farm and also be a sustainable income source. Looking at what needs to be done to hold events & weddings at the farm for another source of income. Also talking about and planning some cool fundraising ideas.
-Cutting the grass and weed eating. There’s a ton of grass to cut and with all of the rain you can literally watch it grow! You’re always welcome to join in on the fun!
-Something we are really excited about….Putting together a Launch Team! What is a launch team? So glad you asked! A launch team is a group of people who want to support & be cheerleaders for something really incredible! Like; Arrow Farm!
We are asking people who have a heart for seeing kids thrive to be Ambassadors for Arrow Farm! If you have been reading the blog posts, talking to us about the vision for Arrow Farm or you’ve just heard about this farm-thing we’re doing out in McClellanville and your heart starts to beat faster, you get really excited about helping kids and families stay intact and you just know that you need to know more; then you are who we are looking for to be on the Launch Team!
We’re going to utilize Facebook as our primary tool of communication within a closed group, so you can live anywhere in the world and be part of the team! Launch Team members will know the vision and mission of Arrow Farm and then all we’re asking is that you talk to people about it! Social Media will be the easiest tool and what we recommend. That’s it. Not gonna ask anyone to go door to door selling anything. You don’t have to put a team together. There will be zero homework (Praise Jesus!) and no meetings you have to show up for. We will have some fun events for the launch team and we would love to have you join us for those!
If you would like to know more about the Launch Team or you’d like an invite to join, shoot me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you set up! I know some of you are still wondering what Arrow Farm is all about and we would be happy to answer any questions you have.
On September 16th, we’re having our 1st Launch Team Party out at the farm! There’s going to be an inflatable waterslide, food, games and fun for the whole family! Let me know if you want an invite and I’ll send it right to ya! We will also take some time on the 16th to answer questions: let you know what the business plan looks like, the phases of the farm, who we will be serving, house parents, school and everything else! We greatly appreciate everyone who continues to pray for the Farm! We cannot thank you enough!
