In 1994 the Lord spoke to Dillard about starting a camp but for nine years it was only a thought in his heart. One day he found some property that he thought would fulfill the dream, however the property could not be obtained due to legal matters.
Two weeks later, he was talking to a friend of his who asked him when he was going to build the camp. He told him he hadn't been able to find any land. His friend just smiled and told him about a neighbor of his that was going to sell her farm that she had owned since 1954. Dillard went and saw the property, showed it to a friend and then carried his wife Linda over to see it on a Friday afternoon. The property was perfect and Linda told Dillard to purchase the property that night. They contacted the owner, made the deal and bought the property all in the same day. The rest is "His-Story"!
