Mifflin is basically Nowheresville, Ohio. So why be determined to see a church built there? Because of its strategic location!
I often think that Mifflin is a good example of Israel of old. Israel was no where in particular, but it it was the main highway to everywhere. To get to any of the major empires and places of culture, one had to pass through Israel.
God had placed Israel in the one place where it could have the greatest affect on the world.
I often see Mifflin and such a town. By itself, it is nothing. Yet, being located by St. Rt. 30, it has the potential to reach a number of the greater cities in the area. Mansfield, Ashland, and Wooster all are within its reach.
Providence has been looking for a new place to meet for the last several months. Our desire is to stay in that vicinity for this very reason. Our members come from all of these locals, and we hope that we may continue to birth growth in them all because of it.
