A decision has been
made to lessen our presence in Second Life. The island will be
sold and we will begin looking for a small parcel to set up a little
store front. This store will display some materials for the
Mission and encourage people to visit the Mission website.
There are a few reasons why
this decision has been made. One is the cost; of course, at this
time I am sure everyone is looking at cutting expenses. The other
reasons are that we have no way of tracking people from SL to the website, and last but not least is lack of participation.
We always have had people
visiting New Jerusalem, but no one seemed interested in participating
in a virtual COL, or leaving questions, etc. So while we may have
had over a hundred folks come through in a week, it doesn't mean that
they read any information or visited the web site. Maybe in the
future things will lead us back to an island, but for now, we leave it
all to God and give thanks to Him for all that has been done.
Note: You need to download the SL program,
install it, etc. before you can access
