As I mentioned in my last entry, the master plan for East Edisto was unveiled last night at a town meeting held at Summerville High School. You can go to the website to see the maps and read all about it. It's incredible exciting. "Why?" you ask - THIS IS OUR MISSION FIELD!
In Scripture there are lots of times when God sends His people to existing areas of need, but there are also those rare occasions when God sends His people out ahead to prepare the way. John the Baptist knew all about that kind of ministry. He went to the wilderness and declared that Jesus was coming. How cool is it that we get to do the same thing!
We are in ongoing conversations with the land development team at MeadWestVaco that is responsible for this project. They see ARC as an asset to the kind of community they are trying to build. Please continue to pray for our relationship with MWV and our continued dialogue, but more importantly start pulling the maps of these communities up on your computer screen and start praying for the people who will come and the ways God will use us to point them to Jesus.
This is so exciting!!!
