Seldom are we taking time nowadays to rest in the goodness and values we once saw everywhere. But we found those very values embodied in a story printed in the July 8 edition of the Lodi New-Sentinel, “Salvation Army grads to become officers.” In this article authored by Pam Bauserman, she devoted ample time to a couple who shared with us their climb from despair to a life now filled with hope and joy.

After reading the article, we paused and were struck with how much courage it must have taken for Saul and Crystal to reveal their lives and celebrate their newfound joy. As we read on, we understood how their lives changed so dramatically as they shared their newfound future that rested with God.

What a story of salvation! But the joy their salvation has brought them was real and evident through their comments. Saul and Crystal still had no money, job, house, or “things,” but reveal such happiness despite these worldly “needs.” On the contrary, they humbly but directly shared their new life’s direction — a result of knowing God.

Thank you, Salvation Army, for your devotion. And thank you, Saul and Crystal, because we were blessed with you sharing your story and the love God has for us all.

Michael and Rhonda Prizmich
