Dreams are often with us but how many dreams become a reality? In 1999 Mary Nelle Cummins had a dream that was "vivid and intense and I am certain that it was a vision from God."
In the dream Mary Nelle was directed to start a children's health clinic, supported by volunteer doctors, nurses and others. Supplies and equipment was donated. "It was a happy place with cheerfully painted walls and stuffed animals and games and puzzles for children. There were rocking chairs for volunteers to rock children while parents talked to nurses and doctors."
In my dream there was a big flood or some crisis. I was rushing about frantically trying to save the many donated items and suppies...and then I awakened!"
