Once again we have found ourselves in an entirely new neighborhood. I honestly don’t think we have ever been in this neck of the woods before (though I’ve been wrong before about places we have or haven’t been. Just ask Gary!). But at any rate, I KNOW we’ve never been at this particular SOWER project before – mostly because it’s only been in our SOWER Family of Ministries for a year or so!
This month we are serving at The Potter’s Place – Psalm 91 in Central, SC – which is not to be confused with central South Carolina!
The town of Central, SC, is actually quite far west in the state, and is home to (among other things) Southern Wesleyan University and is just east of the town of Clemson. (There’s a university there too, I hear!)
This ministry is focused on three areas –
To provide an environment of quiet solitude where those who come can seek God and be molded into the vessel “The Potter” desires (Jeremiah 18:1-4).
To provide a place of respite for full-time pastors and missionaries who need rest and renewal.
To serve other Kingdom building leaders from Churches, para-church and humanitarian organizations.
We arrived mid-afternoon today and are still in recovery mode from our boomerang trip to Texas this past week (as in I’m still working on clearing out the back seat of the truck and has anyone seen the peanut butter?), so we haven’t done much exploring yet. But we’re looking forward to the month for sure! We’ll be working with two other SOWER couples, one experienced and one on their very first project! As an added bonus we have friends in the area and we are excited about connecting with them. And with a couple of other SOWER projects within driving distance, you just never know what adventures might be instore!
I have a very good feeling that April 2021 will be a great deal different than April 2020.
