Behind the scene and praying fervently we would love to see a land base established in the Olive Press Hotel in Skala Lautron, a small fishing harbor 20 mins from Mytilini on the edge of the smaller of the two inland lagoons.
What does this location and place have to offer?
A place of peace, beauty and tranquility.
Away from the rush and bustle of Mytilini.
Away from the rush and bustle of life.
A place to come aside and rest.
A place to be inspired by creation.
A place to walk among ancient olive trees.
A place to stare at the ocean and ponder.
Situated 20 meters from the sandy beach and facing west to the setting sun. This is a place one can come and breath fresh sea air, gaze at undulating beauty and in that stillness hear Gods voice in the depths of your heart.
Climb the small hill to the south and sit on a bench in front of the old Greek chapel and just meditate, let your mind rest, your heart ponder and your spirit communicate. Discover a fresh vision for your life.
Climb the large hill on the north of the bay and do serious prayer and intercession for your life, the island and the kingdom. Sleep on the top under the stars. Take in all of creation that longs and yearns for your revealing.
What would we do there?
Basically in a word seek the transnational process of turning human olives into holy anointing oil.
For people of all different nationalities to come and meet God in a deeper way and through that daily encounter sense an internal transformation. Become illumined on the inside
