Dear Friends and Fellow Preppers,
I’ve posted on here before that I think the U.P. of Michigan is one of the best bug out locales around. But, I’m prejudiced, as I live here. I certainly realize that everyone has their own ideas. But, believe me…..we’ll find out soon! I wish the best for everyone. God Bless you All!
But, regardless of whether I’m right, wrong, or somewhere in-between, I have a situation that I may be offering up for some special peoples’ attention. We already have a community in place. It’s several families in a small neighborhood out in the boonies working towards self sufficiency and our own micro-economy. We are looking for like minded people to join us. What’s new?
I’ll be very specific here, as I truly believe it’s better to be up front and truthful. It’s one of the things I like about this web site. People who post on here will put exactly what they are or aren’t looking for, and that’s great! I know there is somebody out there who is looking for this type of situation. But, because it involves being here on my property, I’ll be even more specific, and just plain blunt. I hope it’s appreciated. And, if the “shoe doesn’t fit”, then God Bless You, and I hope you find what you are looking for. One size certainly does not fit all. By the way, I’m not advertizing real estate in our area, although there are places to buy here. This is basically a freebie (for the right person – see below).
I’m thinking of having a healthy, hardworking Christian couple, or small family move onto my property (basically for free) with the caveat being that they agree to help out around the place. They could put a travel trailer on my property, live here free, but agree to work on this farm 6 days a week. We raise dairy goats, chickens, organic garden, etc. Experience is good, but not necessary – I’ll teach you. Here’s the deal: My wife and I live here alone and are happy, healthy, and are over 50. There are others in the neighborhood, but we are looking for help specifically on our place. There is much to do, and I’m not sure how much time we have left. So, here are some qualifications to consider:
We are Christians. Actually, we are what is sometimes called “Messianic” although I don’t like the name tag thing. But I note this because we are looking for others like ourselves. We work 6 days a week, and our Sabbath begins Friday evening at sundown. If you are a Sunday Christian, that’s perfectly fine. We love you, and respect you, but you wouldn’t fit in here. We keep the Biblical Holy Days (Passover, Unleavened Bread, etc.). We don’t do Christmas trees and Easter eggs. Once again, if you do, that’s fine…..I’m just saying up front that we don’t. We don’t eat unclean meats. We aren’t expecting to be raptured away any time soon. We sincerely believe that we are at the doorway to the Great Tribulation, and plan on never selling out our faith. We will not deny the Lord Jesus Christ, even if it means our lives. We do not believe there is a political solution for this country, as the problem (we believe) isn’t political, but spiritual. So, if you are a “conservative Christian” that believes we just need more Republicans in office, that’s fine. That’s not where we’re coming from, though. We believe in standing against tyranny and are armed and will defend our property and our families. So, we have what you may call a neighborhood “covenant militia”. In essence, we have each others backs. Some may disagree with this, and plan to just pray against the troops coming up there driveway. I understand this mindset – they’ll end up in a FEMA camp, and it’s not going to be as romantic as they thought. I’ll be praying, too (as I’m reloading).
I say all this not to spout off, or express my views. But, instead to be very specific as to who we’re looking for. If this is not your cup of tea, that’s perfectly fine. I’m sure there’s a situation out there that is just right for your famnily, it’s just not this one. I don’t want to debate any of this. It’s far too late for that.
So, we need help around here. Somebody may be looking for a place out in the boonies. 2 + 2 = 4!!! Take care, and may God Bless You ALL!
