Special Announcement

I‚Äčt is with deep sadness that we report the unexpected death of one of our dearest friends David Bendt. All of the volunteers and homeowners knew David as a kind, gentle, and hard working man who exuded the fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).

We have had the tremendous privilege to serve with David on disaster relief deployments across the US cleaning up after fires, floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes. We have had the special privilege of working with David as we have served in Colorado Springs, CO for the last three years cleaning up after the Black Forest fires.

David was equally comfortable serving as a leader or worker. He was consistent in his calm and gentle manner and brought wisdom to conversations and situations.

David will be greatly missed as a brother, friend, and leader. While we grieve for our loss we are encouraged in knowing that David is in the presence of his great, merciful, and loving God. We are comforted to know that he has heard the words “well done my good and faithful servant!”

Please pray for peace and comfort that only the Holy Spirit can bring for David’s wife Ione, son Tim and daughter Karley.

We will announce service times and details as they become available.
