My Friends in Rescue,
God has faithfully used you to resolve the cash flow problem that we communicated to you. September is close, but the ink is black.
As the time draws near, September 15th, for me to step away as the Director of the Columbus & Living Water Rescue Mission, it has given me cause to reflect on all that God has done over the past 17 years here. There have been many tears shed over fallen lives, tears for His miracle of salvation, with many more tears of joy as the Lord would encourage me with a call or visit from you who are walking in God’s redemptive plan. I have pondered what I might have done different and pray for Nathan to have God’s wisdom as he takes on the responsibility of Executive Director. Chaplain Hawk feels the same way.
We are going to have two Open Houses if you want to stop and see Hawk or myself. They will be August 25th in York from 1:00-4:00 pm at the Living Water Rescue Mission and August 26th in Columbus from 1:00-4:00 at First Baptist Church, 3210 30th St, Columbus, NE. I would be most interested in your meeting and introducing yourself to Nathan. He needs your prayer and support in directing God’s ministry of Rescue.
I want you to know how much each one of you as friends, donors, guests, and staff mean to me. I am truly a blessed man to have been able to serve you, and as I move on to a new position as Visitation Pastor at the Stromsburg Evangelical Free Church, I go there with fond memories of all of you.
PRAISE THE LORD!
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:3-6
