We had a very special time together last week when we celebrated Don May's legacy to the Fairbanks Rescue Mission. He was one of the original founders and kept the Mission going through many hard times. His connection to the Mission spanned over 40 years! Just imagine in that time, how many lives he touched with his kindness.
We dedicated the kitchen and dining halls to him on this past Tuesday in the presence of his wife and children. What a blessing to hear from them about his amazing life! It was a very fitting dedication as Don May never wanted anyone to go hungry after his frontier experiences when he first arrived in Alaska.
He is an example for all of us of a commitment to a ministry that lasted many decades. A lot of the blessings that we are seeing presently are ones that Don May and the other founders prayed for years ago.
His favorite Scripture verses were Matthew 25:35-40.
