Answered Prayer Affirms God’s Leading
Story by Tamyra Horst
Members of the Williamsport church are selling their building and constructing a new combined church and school facility. Between the sale price of the church and funds already donated, they have more than 60 percent of the funds needed to build the new facility on the campus of Mountain View Christian School (MVCS).
Educating young people is a priority mission for members who invest time, resources and prayers into their growing school. Enrollment at MVCS has grown from 13 in 2019 to 45 this year—the highest mark in the school’s history! Construction plans for the new facility were created based on 50 students, but those plans are now being modified.
While preparing for a business meeting to vote on the proposed building plans, Roy Weeden, pastor of Williamsport, spent time praying. He recalled how God had led the church and school so far. As he prayed for the Holy Spirit to guide the business meeting, he asked God to affirm His leading and the direction the church was preparing to go. “Within hours, my phone lit up with texts and phone calls that culminated in a check for our school in the amount of $30,000!” Weeden shares. The gift came from a previously unanticipated source and had been 11 years in the making. Weeden explains, “The call came hours after my sincere request. A token of faith sent by God to validate our steps.”
