Sharing What God Entrusted to Create a Living Legacy
October 27, 2021

MARSHALL, TEX. – After they married, Cheryl and David Steingas, pictured right, found employment in Marshall, Tex. When it was time to buy a home. there weren’t many options, so they turned to God in prayer. They asked God to expand their family and provide a home where they could serve Him. 

First, God helped them find land that was just the right size. “We felt the Lord placed us right here,” David shared. Then, God helped them find more land across the street. 

When Cheryl’s now-widowed aunt needed a new home closer to family, God answered her prayer. The Steingases had a one-bedroom home moved on to the property for her. 

After she passed away, they continued to use this “mission home” as a temporary shelter for Hurricane Katrina victims, as well as a home for family, friends, gospel workers and many others. 

This year, the Atlanta, Linden, Marietta-New Hope and Marshall churches met on the property for an area camp meeting. After Sabbath morning service and potluck, two new members were baptized by Ernesto Illingworth, district pastor. “We never imagined we would see baptisms on this property,” David shared. “Praise God we get to serve in this capacity.”
