This ministry houses full time missionaries and at times part time missionaries / full time volunteers / pastors for longer or shorter time retreats.
we have 2 units that house 1 or 2 persons , 1 unit that houses a family of 2 to 4 persons, one unit that houses 2 to 6 persons, and as one of the 2 person units is on top of the 6 person unit we can combine these two and house a family for up to 10 persons
The Fosmo family privately owns the land , pays for the mortgage & property taxes and does all the work on the land.
They work as missionaries for restore His workers full time ( unpaid) as to make your stay as cheep as possible.
You as guest are asked to cover your electricity , utilities, building insurance ( see the last page of the application package)
generally $100,- per couple per week , $25,- per extra person/ child per week.
If this is too much for you please let us know at time of application so we can see what we can do for you.
If your church / ministry lets us know you cannot afford this you can apply for scholarship
If you just want to save some $ you can ask to do yard or maintenance work to reduce your contributions here $20,- per hour of work....with a max of 5 hrs per week per unit.
we have a very 'limited visitors policy' as to keep this a peaceful and restful place for all living here.
we live 1 1/2 hrs away from Seattle , 40 minutes from stores , minimal public transportation ; all this makes this a great place to get rest. If you plan to fund raise / spend a lot of time in cities this may be a challenge due to travel time and gas.
with rural living comes rural internet service ...that means we have a computer and office you can use 1 to 2 hrs a day for internet , emails, google searches. no down loads / gaming / Skype / big files or we are all without any service at all while you are on. so bring your own service if you need any of that or use the libraries 20 minutes away from us.
may God bless you and give you the rest you need !
If you are a full time missionary and need some time to get away from work / fundraising / people needing your time , so you can have alone time with God ; this may be the right place for you.
you can come for 1 week upto 6 months maximum.
