My co-worker and a colleague, whose camaraderie I have appreciated and enjoyed, has announced that he has accepted a call to serve in another part of the vineyard (Matthew 20). Pastor Philip Doublestein, my brother, we are excited for the opportunities that lie before you. But, we are also saddened in our loss of your service, your energy, your learning, and your upbeat nature.
God bless you, Kate, and Wyatt, as you make your way to San Antonio, there to be a part of mission starts and all the services in which Lutheran Intercity Network Coalition (LINC) participates. You will be missed. And you will certainly be welcomed whenever you find yourself back in our neighborhood!
Fare well. And Godspeed on your journey.
