We finally closed on another piece of the land puzzle. Since the storm we have purchased four parcels of adjacent land. Last year our pre-storm neighbor, who owned the property where the current camp kitchen sits, agreed to sell to us. Because of issues pertaining to his Mississippi grant he needed to wait on closing. This past Friday we completed the transaction on this forth piece. The diagram above shows our current land holdings.
This acquisition opens up enough property to begin making plans for our new church facilities while still hosting, housing, and feeding the volunteer efforts. With this new property footprint, we do still have the sensitive issue of existing grave sites that we want to respectfully incorporate into development planning. We would love to obtain the other two sections of land on the chart above, however the current owners have expressed no interest in selling. Please make these issues subjects of prayer as we move forward for the glory of God.
