We have often said we do not believe in miracles, we DEPEND upon them. And, He is working all sorts of miracles. So much so it is a bit on the scary side. We are now in the running for one of three properties in Edgewood, New Mexico which is just outside of Albuquerque on I-40, east of Albuquerque a few miles.
It has been a while since we have posted here. We have been working toward seeing this project to care for our homeless veterans with the prime focus on providing an assisted living facility in Albuquerque specific for veterans with six months, or less, in which to live.
We are now purchasing a property in Edgewood, in the mountains just East of Albuquerque. Edgewood is a small, new city located in the Sandia place name of the central New Mexico Rocky Mountains. The first property has four bedrooms and sits on three acres of land. That land will allow us to develop apartment housing for the elderly and handicapped on the same property.
The City of Edgewood has indicated their desire to work with us. And, the good news with respect to the City of Albuquerque is they are working with us to purchase a property in Old Town, the original Albuquerque settlement. The city has offered to handle any of the bidding and construction contract needs and will pass on the discount they enjoy to our benefit.
There are currently two properties in Edgewood which have high marks as to fitting our needs best. One property is not yet on the market. That property has a commercial well which could prove to be a financial blessing if we were able to obtain that property at a reasonable price as we would be able to sell water from that well; or, to enter into a relationship with a water bank which would also produce a monthly income. The other property has three acres and a new residential dwelling with four bedrooms and two and a half baths. This property is located close to the first and has potential for future development. This second property would easily support the kennel business we now run from here in Old Town. We will continue to operate the kennel business at both the Albuquerque and Edgewood properties.
There is no better therapy for a human being than that provided through a loving relationship with a dog, or cat. People with pets live longer and happier lives than those of us who do not. Research has born out this truth time and time again. Kay, Angel and I will continue to drive the roads of New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado raising funds for our project as long as the three of us are able to do so. Kay and I are not getting any younger so our ability to keep up on the road is diminishing month after month.
