The Rezoning is Approved!
We have some exciting news to share with you today! You may not be aware, but we have been making progress behind the scenes toward the new building project. For two years, we have been working with a consultant and an architect firm to help us rezone the newly-purchased property so that a school can be built on the new land. During that time we have met with numerous government officials, devised plans to meet their recommendations, and then presented this finished project to the zoning board.
Today we have received word that THE REZONING HAS BEEN APPROVED! What does that mean? This is one of the first steps that we needed to complete that will be followed by making more detailed plans and raising the funds required for the project. After that, we will work toward getting the plans approved so that once we have our funding all lined up, we can break ground and build. The fundraising and planning phases will probably take another two years or more, but we want to celebrate each step along the way.
While studying the book of Exodus in the Old Testament, I was reminded that God’s people celebrated when He made a promise to them. They did not wait until they saw the fulfillment of that promise. They knew that they could trust God to keep His word, as He had proven Himself faithful throughout time past. And so they praised God for what He was going to do.
Let us join together as a community to celebrate what God has done and what He is going to do. The accomplishment of clearing this hurdle is the perfect time to do so! We are confident that God is working out all things in His time. We must continue to be patient and to bring the building project to Him in prayer. Thanks to all who have been supporting us as we walk through this exciting time together.
Because of His Faithfulness,
Dr. Sharon C. Brobst, Director
