Pilgrim Hill attracts international support

God-willing, Pilgrim Hill will attract travellers - and supporters - from all over the world.

Ronald and Christina Kirk, who currently live in California, are already devotees.

The Kirks know Peirce and Christina Baehr through their parents. They say the main reason they were drawn to the venture was its focus on evangelism.

"Christians possess something extremely worthwhile that others do not," says Ron, a landscape architect who became a Christian in his early '20s.

"Hospitality has a venerable history in the cause of Christ. Add to the mix the Baehr family, of the greatest character and amiability, and you have a great missionary work of the highest quality," he says.

When I ask Ron why he and his wife decided to support a ministry in a first-world country many miles away, he says, "We're supposed to make disciples of all nations - what better way to minister the love of Christ than through hospitality?"

If you would like to support the ministry of Pilgrim Hill, our website outlines ways you can help:

Not your average work day...

For many of us, the words "work" and "day" conjure up a pretty tedious affair that involves a desk, a screen, and not a lot of physical activity. But at Pilgrim Hill, work days are an entirely different beast. 

For starters, there's no space between the words "work" and "day" - our workdays are too dynamic for that! Also, you can put an exclamation mark after the word without being cynical - they really are fun!

If you're based in Tassie and have never experienced a Pilgrim Hill workday, you're in luck. There's one coming up in a couple of weeks and you're invited

Come prepared to do battle with thistle and bracken, breathe the fresh Huon air, make new friends, and enjoy a delicious afternoon tea. If you're really lucky, Jordan de Hoog will take a shallow depth-of-field photograph that makes you look even more beautiful than you already are...
