I realize that I have been quiet on this blog for quite sometime now, but I want to assure you that my commitment to building the museum has not waned. Yes, it is a daunting task and it has been difficult to gather supporters, funds, and interest in the museum. But, I continue to lift the museum up to God and look for open doors and resources to flow. I remain confident that God is in control and in the right timing everything will come together.
The concept of the museum is different and many people haven't know what to make of it. It's not another church and it's not aimed solely for amusement. Yet, it will have a role in building the kingdom and hopefully it will be done through an entertaining experience. I personally enjoy the idea of the museum being a unique way to reach people,... a unique way to share the gospel of Christ. God has never been in a box for me -- His love endless, His grace boundless, His mercy limitless. A Light in the World Museum is just one more way that God will meet people where they are. I know that God wants the museum built. That belief has never wavered.
Take a look at what is planned for inside the museum.
It's been hard to get back to this blog, even though I have felt God prodding me to do so. 2011 has come in with a sense that all things are different. Have you felt it? It's been as if we have entered into a new chapter in time - a harder time. Winter has been long, causing me to be reflective on the changing of seasons personally as well as globally.
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.
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.
