October is Pastor Appreciation Month in the United States and Canada. Here is the story of how one congregation showed its appreciation for their pastor.
On a recent September morning, Wayne Mitchell, pastor of GCI’s congregation in Seattle/Bellevue, Washington, headed for the hills (the home of Mike Hills, that is). There he met up with a “band of brothers” from his congregation. After sharing breakfast, the men took to the woods with chainsaws, pruners, and a four-wheeler, and proceeded to fell some trees. Four hours later they had cut, split and stacked a couple of cords of wood to be given to Pastor Wayne. The men wanted to show their pastor how much they appreciate him and all he does in serving the congregation. They also wanted to help keep Wayne and his wife warm and cozy this winter. Here are some pictures:
