Andersonville -- William Richard claims to see visions of the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ in his front yard.
Richard says he has seen visions of scriptures and faces since 1996. The visions he sees are often in the forest where he made a rose column chapel that is dedicated to Jesus Christ.
Richard says the reason for the appearances are for encouragement and because he has been called by God for a special mission. "I have been chosen to unite the twelve tribes of Israel when He gives me the verse, and I am to drop everything and just go to Persia."
Richard says that he prayed for his wife to be able to see the visions so she could understand.
Now when he sees visions of numbers, his wife often interprets the numbers and directs him to the scriptures that she thinks God is trying to show him.
