When they saw the woman who was selling the property she did not want to sell this particular hill, she wanted it to build her own home on. This was not acceptable because that would mean breaking up the property. So they went back to the motel to petition the Lord for guidance, it was decided that if the woman would sell, without them asking her, the entire property for $8 dollars per acre, the amount she had originally asked for, that the Lord wanted them to buy this piece of land.
They met with her the next morning, before they were able to say anything she said, "Oh, I decided to sell the hill for the same price as the rest of the property." So they new that hill was their answer, that they should buy the Waco property.
This entrance next to Highway 6, which
is now Valley Mills Hwy.

||The reason for this kind of gate is because Brother Houteff said, "The Lord is protecting this place, we need no gates, guard dogs, or guns." The only gates we had were to keep the live stock in place.|
