Bittersweet weekend

Our Presentation
This weekend, we're having our Mission presentation at church, of which you're all welcome. We know we'll have plenty of video and posts in the next few days for those of you that are unable to attend.

It's Sunday (June 9th) at 1230 at the church..



Ron
Unfortunately, it's also the weekend that we lay to rest our friend and brother, Ron Nakamura



A man with a big voice, big laugh and big heart, he is singing with Jesus at this moment. Of the many things in his life, including his marriage to Janis and raising two daughters, Ron also joined our team to work in Pascagoula, MS

After his trip, he continued correspondence with our site supervisors Brad and Denise, stretching the friendship over the years and miles. In fact, when we've met up with either of them, Ron's name would come up in the first few minutes.

Over the life of our mission, we've lost two brothers and team members, first our leader from our very first trip, Dennis, and this week, Ron. It was an honor to serve with such good men.

There's much that has and will be said about Ron, but we want to thank God for allowing him to travel to Mississippi with us and experience His Grace by working and greeting people in Christ's name.

And we thank God for the opportunity to spend that special week with him, Blessed to be a blessing.

Here's a post that Ron wrote upon returning from Mississippi
