    The organization helps individuals with special needs and chronic illnesses.

    "Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it," Hamels said. "Barnabas makes dreams come true, and we felt called to help them in a big way." 

    The 32,000-square-foot mansion will be the largest gift in the history of Barnabas, according to a press release by the Hamels Foundation

    The Hamels began building the mansion in 2012. It went up for sale in August of this year. The home sits on 104.7 acres of land with more than 1,700 feet of shoreline along Table Rock Lake.

    "Our mission is to change lives through disability ministry, and we've been strategically looking for ways to expand our ministry outside of a summer camp," said Jason Brawner, CEO of Camp Barnabas. "We have no doubt this gift will allow us to do just that."
