Review for Opal House, Snohomish, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

To be invited to spend time at Opal House is to be welcomed into a vision made real. From the escuelita serving local Mayan children, to the healthy fields of coffee and avocados, to the awe-inspiring chapel and finally, to the warmth and hospitality of the Will and Diane's home, our visit to Opal House was truly life-changing. It was my first encounter with people who followed God's call and, selflessly, and with great effort, are making a difference for the people in the community and those that have the opportunity to visit. We will not ever forget our visit to a Mayan home where Dr. Will checked on a patient. My four year old granddaughter will never forget riding in the tuc-tuc to pick up the children for school and my one year granddaughter will not forget the parrots' morning wakeup call "BUENO! HOLA!"

As Jacob said, "Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it." But I know it now and hope to share the vision with others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help Will and Diane create time and space for themselves so that they can continue to create the safe and loving place that Opal House has become.
