Relationship:Camp nurse at one of his youth camps in Oregon

This world has lost a good man. I had the pleasure of being the youth camp nurse the past two summers for Horizon Community Church at Rockaway Beach, Oregon where Donnie was the guest speaker. He spoke powerful words of encouragement over me, over everyone, really. He always ignited fires of hope, healing and strength in the hearts of those he came in contact with. I sat next to him, surrounded by youth raising their hands in worship and getting prayed over, as we shared the earthly weights on our minds, and he put his arm around me and pulled my head to his side as we talked about losing my young son Justus to suicide. In that moment I felt comforted by his father heart, a longing I have missed out on in the physical and emotional absence of my own father.
I can see him now, face to face with his Creator-Redeemer in heaven, with joy unspeakable. My heart is glad for him, yet it aches for all of us still living in the Shadowlands.
