In 2007, Fred Grey, then president of RLM, had a vision of a Mission Centre in Thunder Bay; a place where workers could stay when they had to come into the city. It was envisioned that this home could be a place of refuge and respite for those in need and for weary travellers.
The Earls, who were accustomed to offering hospitality to those in need, were at the same time considering moving from Armstrong to Thunder Bay so as to provide a home to four foster children they had cared for many years. God had the answer for both. In 2008 He provided a 6 bedroom home with all kinds of potential for both needs. The Home was renovated and has since hosted many individuals each year, as well as boarding College & University students wanting a Christian atmosphere to learn and grow in, and many foster children in need of family, security and love.
