In the spring of 2012, Ian McDonald and I met through a small group. Our hearts quickly connected and united in a deep passion to serve God through the mission of Restoration Hope. Ian has served Restoration Hope faithfully and been invaluable in helping us expand our reach and establish the successful main fundraiser, Wet N Wild. The success of Restoration Hope over the past 2 years is directly tied to his passionate heart and relentless efforts.
After a long season of prayer, Ian felt he could best support and serve the mission of Tabitha Ministries and Restoration Hope as a volunteer. The board of Restoration Hope has accepted Ian's resignation as Managing Director of Restoration Hope and is pleased to announce his appointment as a volunteer champion. Ian's heart for the work of Tabitha Ministries and our heart for him have not lessened. He is as committed as ever to serving God in bringing relief, rebuilding capacity and redefining opportunity for the women, children and men of Sweetwaters. We look forward to a great year of partnering together in his new capacity.
Restoration Hope is in the process of interviewing candidates to fill the huge void that will be left by Ian's departure. Please join us in praying for Ian, his family, and the leadership of Restoration Hope as we navigate this season of change. In the interim our Board of Directors is carrying out the duties of Restoration Hope. God is stirring in us stronger than ever and we look forward to making some great announcements in the weeks and months to come, so stay tuned!
