Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.
I would like to take this time to convey a great big thank you to all that attended our 4th annual banquet last evening! In a world that is so quick to judge and condemn the actions of others, it was refreshing and exciting to spend the evening with those who are willing to forgive and come along side those the world considers "the least of these". Just by coming to the banquet, you showed support for the staff, board, and the men that have, are, and will reside at KBPA.
We enjoyed a fine dinner (provided by the board), heard testimonies from a few of the men, and were updated on the events of the last year. It was an exciting year as we were able to add Pastor Mark Van Der Brink to our staff, continue to improve the property, pay off a portion of our debt, and were able to purchase the house adjacent to "The Master's House".
Again, I would like to say thank you on behalf of the board, staff, and residents. Your attendance made last night a great evening. For those that were in attendance and those that were not able to attend, it is with your prayers, encouragement and financial support that gives KBPA the ability to continue to walk alongside those very special to our Father. It has not gone unnoticed.
Selfless service to others brings honor to God.
