Over hot chocolate with
his dad one cozy winter day in Mammoth, Mason set some goals for 2014.
Along with growing a six foot mohawk and learning to play an instrument,
he aspired to fly in a plane to India.
As a family, we have always prayed for India. The amount of orphans there number in the millions. And while our hearts are broken over the child our family is missing, we are also made aware of all those little children missing families.
Shortly after Mason's sudden death, very dear friends of ours were moved to establish a home for orphans in honor of our son. Unaware of Mason's goal to fly to India, their hearts had been moved by God to bless a country already so close to our hearts.
In January of 2016, Mason's Place became a reality. It is located in Rajasthan, India and is the current home to 50 girls, 8 staff members and includes a school with 170 students.
Under the leadership of Hope Partners International, partnering with the Church of North India, we pray that this home will become a refuge for those children who are orphaned, abandoned, and left facing a life of victimization, enslavement, abuse and harm. Mason’s Place will provide not just a home where orphans will be loved and nurtured, but will also provide an education, discipleship, and preparation for life.
Mason's Place is situated on more than 6 acres and has over 7,000 square feet of livable space. These current facilities require much renovation but are a great foundation from which to move forward as we seek to transform lives and the surrounding area through the love of Jesus.
Future plans include the establishment of a
Hope Center which will look to serve the entire community by providing medical care, adult education and vocational training, all centered around a church.
We welcome you to be a part of what God is doing at Mason’s Place and the work God is doing in India.
We humbly thank God for this beautiful vision and we are forever grateful to the generous people impacting the world through the memory of our son.
