"Hello" from Tom and Claire Muller! We live near Cynthiana, Kentucky, and have had a passion for missions since becoming Christians in 1979- in our early 20's. Our lives soon revolved around having children, adoption, and foster care while Tom was a firefighter in Winchester for 20 years.
The concept of the Valley of Baca Missionary Retreat was born from that passion. Becoming servants to God's servants seems to be a niche that suits us. We reasoned that housing and transportation may be a big issue with missionaries when they were in the states, so we wrote to missionaries. Over and over their responses confirmed that need.
Jesus is our 'Lord of the Board' . He manages every aspect of the Valley of Baca. He works on overall scheduling, keeping the vehicles and missionaries configured in ways we would never have imagined. He manages to keep peace (in the valley!) as well as constantly offering more ideas to serve. He listens to each problem we've faced and comes up with solutions when the time is right. We try to always defer to his mindset.
