Mission Central celebrated the 2015 Harry Overholtzer Volunteer of the Year on June 25, 2015. The warehouse was open for tours and a time to visit with and celebrate Marsha Fisher’s many years of dedicated service to Mission Central as a volunteer, Board of Managers Vice President, Board of Directors President, auditor and speaker. Additionally, a memorial tree was planted in memory of Bob Redding. Marsha shares here reflections on the days celebration:
“I want to thank everyone who sent notes or attended the June 25th celebration of my recognition as the 2015 Harry Overholtzer Volunteer of the Year. It was combined with my completing of two years as vice-president and five years of presidency of the Mission Central Board of Directors. I so appreciated the recognition. I have a full heart and would do it all over again. I truly look forward to observing what comes next for Mission Central (MC). I know MC is ready for the challenges. We are a ministry of mission outreach, mission education and disaster response. We, the laity, must not forget the need to support this ministry with our time, prayers and financial support. God is proud of our work. He must be, because he shows us daily the need to be His hands and feet.
After the celebration, Rob led a Memorial Service for Bob Redding outside at the Prayer Garden. Those present for the celebration joined myself and the staff for the planting of a dogwood tree placed behind the prayer bench. It was a beautiful service. That’s what Mission Central is all about. Hearts are touched here.
In Christian Love, Marsha Fisher”
It was a blessing to participate in a moment to honor Mr. Bob Redding and celebrate how his life touched so many in a positive way. Mission Central is so proud of Marsha and the work she does! We are also glad that Marsha will continue to serve as the weekly auditor, a member of the Finance Committee and speaker for the Mission Central Ambassadors Speaking Bureau. Marsha still has work to do for the Kingdom through this vital ministry!
