The Vision (Part One)
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.
I listened to his idea and knew exactly what he had in mind. I was always proud that my father was a bit unconventional. He challenged things that had been taught out of tradition and studied the word of God with a fresh open heart. He even coined the phrase "possibility thinking" which I see is used all over the place now. So, this museum idea wasn't so odd coming from him.
The museum remained in his heart as a part of the ministry he wished to grow. He included it in a written out vision and often spoke of it to others. But, for whatever reason, it was not to be accomplished by him. He passed away in 2003.

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.
