I met Donald through his son Russell. Russell and I were planning to enlist a camp chaplain for Camp RABRO a boy’s mission camp. Donald came and for a week each summer he represented a very good Chaplain. I appreciated his leadership and I had a place for him to serve there as he had time. He always took the time. Thank you Don for your faithful service sharing Christ and being one who loved the outdoors. I am happy to call you a friend.
