july-17-castillo.jpgWe were involved in a special ministry to the family of a man who died in a head-on collision on a mountain road. His teenaged son witnessed the accident. As a volunteer chaplain on the local fire department, I was called to the scene to help the family. Things were complicated, as it was a hit-and-run situation. We helped the family deal with the trauma, packed their camp, and led them back to town and their home. We also helped them find a funeral home; later, we were asked to do the services because they had just moved to town and didn’t know anyone. Although these folks may never attend our church, they said they believed God had us there to minister to their needs. What a time of healing as we shared the hope for eternal life that we all can have in Jesus Christ. God’s work here seems to stretch beyond the boundaries of our local church, as He sees fit.  Nick & Marian Castillo
