What a fascinating story. I love the recurrent theme of the wind(s) (especially when you consider how it pictures the Holy Spirit in the Bible). This is an amazing testimony of how God works. Great work (and writing).
My favorite phrase: "We made friends with the wind. We had to, because we couldn’t send it back." One of those: "Where the corn is green." moments. To me, your sentence speaks volumes of the author's insights and indicates the true heart of a writer. What fascinates me about your work (other than your ability to write and engage the reader) is the consistent theme of working the vineyard for the Lord - regardless of where that vineyard might be. Great work!

I was fascinated by your detailed descriptions of Victoria in the first two paragraphs. I like the way you led into the wind of God's Spirit from the natural wild winds. It flowed,(or blew) beautifully.

I find this an inspirational testimony to God's leading and how He works when people step out in faith. It's also an easy to grasp message for non-believers.

Both your opening and ending lines were great. Superb writing as ever!

I enjoyed how you weaved together the physical wind with the wind of the spirit. Your testimony of how the church grew was inspiring.

We live in an Alaskan fishing village. Easy to identify with the "wind" part of your article. Congrats!
