Miracle Point at Mirror Lake “A perfect place to reflect.”
He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’ Psalm 46:10
We have recently obtained the use of some property that has been in our family for generations. Located on Mirror Lake in the small town of Interlachen, Putnam County, FL, “Miracle Point” is now home to Pastor Audra and her husband, Peter.
Based upon relationships with others the Lord has joined through this ministry and our availability, we share our home with our friends in Jesus by allowing the Lord to use this serene lake side setting – conducive for contemplative time, healing, worship, togetherness, rest, and good ole Florida fun. We call the property the Lord has blessed us with “Miracle Point” because, two by two, the birthing of miracles and revival is what the Lord accomplishes here.
By sharing our home, we are able to provide short term Christian retreats for individuals, one family, or one small group at a time (with a preference to children and Veterans) to allow individuals time to reflect on what God has done in their lives, hear His voice together, learn new skills, celebrate our collective heritage, and better get in line with where the Holy Spirit is taking all of us.
Our beautiful property has a dock accessing Mirror Lake, a spring fed lake where the water is so still and calm that it reflects the beauty of nature as if you were looking at your surroundings through a mirror. The Lord has given us the know-how to utilize every square foot of our homestead to include opportunities for talent discovery, recreational activities (fishing, boating, hiking), learning about nature and science, well balanced nutrition, food preparation and preservation, tent camping, crafts, self care, reality therapy, gardening, tending to small livestock, pastoral care, and getting in touch with God’s creation to better provide for wholeness in Christ and the message of Salvation to be carried further.
We have an art studio, a camp fire ring, a flag pole circle, a meeting room and a dock for swimming or fishing. We hold baptisms in the lake, provide meals, and we are within walking distance to the Carl Duval Moore State Forest nature trails. It’s a great place to step out of the mission field temporarily and get refreshed by God so you can be strengthened enough to go back at it again.
All while gaining a new perspective that incorporates further remembrance of early Native American history, America’s patriotism in it’s formative years, Florida pioneer days, early history of Billy Graham’s ministry that started in our county, and the true wealth contained in revisiting America’s small town “heart land” culture.
We believe that, if you take a small piece of the “simple life” you experience while here, God can be glorified all the more through others in your neighboring American communities when you leave here. People who visit here always say they feel like they have made a trip “home to grandma’s house” where they just attended a “family reunion”. God uses time well spent seeking His direction at Mirror Lake.
“Miracle Point” provides teaching opportunities for His children to learn more about His image and how that compares to our own. When we pay close attention, He teaches about identity in Christ through nature and the surroundings He has provided for all of us here.
At Audra Waters Ministries, Inc., we believe every home in our great nation should feel like a safe haven where we belong because God is exalted. We pray that this property serves, not only as a sanctuary set aside for Him, but as a reminder of our need to get more in touch with our families and our roots so we can all work together better for the greater good of Christ’s Kingdom. We are in need of prayer support as well as financial and in kind donations (ie. sporting equipment, tents, canoes, kayaks) to go towards daily operations, as well as a few small needed renovations. We also welcome sponsor ships for our guests who are working through financial healing.
