We are raising money for startup costs and for a house for House Upon a Hill. We currently operate out of a small space and need to expand into a bigger space in order to accomplish what we need to.
Our names are Micaela & Melina, We are best friends from Pittsburgh who knew God had a purpose for our friendship the moment we met at work 5 years ago. He has taken each of us through quite a lot while we have been friends, both together and individually. We are thankful for all that God is doing in both of our lives and how He is using the purpose He has for our lives individually, for a unified ministry. At the end of last year, God made it very clear that Micaela needed to move to Lancaster PA. She had been in a car accident which resulted in a concussion that led her to need to attend her classes in person at Lancaster Bible College, while Melina was finishing up her college degree in Pittsburgh. In the midst of this, Melina was looking into jobs around the country and praying for what God had for her future. She traveled to Lancaster with Micaela to help her look for apartments, and instead of seeing a single one, God made it evident that this was where Melina needed to be also. So, they made the move in January, started on the journey that God had for them, and after two months, COVID -19 shut "work" down. This stirred up so much in both of them to dig deeper into what God wanted for each of them in that quiet time. Micaela continued to pray for guidance for a dream God had placed on her heart to open a coffee shop, and also to have a house ministry. Melina took quarantine as a time to focus solely on God and Who He is. She was praying for Mica and what He had for her dream, and while doing so, He revealed the plan He has for her life; To lead a ministry of a home that would be able to house people that do not have a place to call home. A place for a season that they need time, family, and for them to experience the Love of Christ. This just so happened to align with what Micaela had in mind for her home, and once they both started praying over this dream, God made it more and more clear that this is what He had for our friendship, and instantly started sending people to stay in their apartment to already show how this ministry would work for His glory. And House Upon a Hill was born. The only thing missing was an actual house. This led to long searches of homes all over the area. But, both of us knew that it was only by God's hand that this would be made possible. We knew our financials wouldn't be enough for a home, but we knew our credentials in Him would be all we needed, since this was His plan to begin with. Our heart is to serve Him in all things, and be obedient in all things. This journey has definitely been a journey of growing in faith, understanding how to hear His voice, and to let go of our own understanding and allowing Him to guide the way--in anything He asks of us. We can't say that hasn't come with trials, but they have all led back to healing our hearts to be in more alignment with His plan.
