We’re actively looking for land to build A Light in the World Museum. Recently, I looked at a 24 acre parcel of land with interstate 81 frontage that would be almost perfect for the museum. There were a couple drawbacks with this property, but for the most part the pluses outweighed the negatives. Unfortunately, after I looked at it the price was raised significantly making it out of the museum’s ability at this time. I know that if this is the land that God has for the Museum he will work out the details.
We are often skeptical when something is free. We think that there has to be a catch. There’s got to be something hidden. That is the reason some find it difficult to understand God’s gift of salvation. God’s love isn’t based on us or what we do; in fact, he loves us in spite of ourselves.
When my father passed away I was shocked. To me he was a spiritual giant, a great man of faith. I didn't think he could be touched by an early death. For weeks I felt as though I was in a fog or living a nightmare. It seemed unreal. The best description would be to say that I felt like the rapture had taken place and I was left behind. I couldn't make sense of it and felt completely out of sorts.
A Light In The World Museum was my father's vision many years ago. I remember him telling me about his idea one day after we had visited a historical wax figure museum. Back then it was exciting when the mannequin's chest moved as if they breathed. My Dad told me he thought that a biblical museum could tell about Jesus in a fresh new experience for unbelievers as well as believers. He thought it would be an instrument that God would use to draw people to him.
It's not in my own might that A Light in the World museum will be built. I certainly do not have the resources to "make" it happen. In my heart I do believe that God has asked me to lead this endeavor with his help. It can only happen with divine appointments and God supplied people, funds, and other resources. I move forward in faith responding to His call to action. Thank you for reading.
