On October 24 our FHA Executive Director Dale Bartscher was pleased to represent the FHA at this year’s Bella Pregnancy Resource Center’s Dessert Gala located in Spearfish, SD. Bella’s Executive Director Roxy Johnson wrote this about their event:
“Along with a delicious meal, scrumptious desserts, and the heartwarming story of a family that has been blessed by Bella, keynote speaker Pastor Herb Lusk did not disappoint? Pastor Lusk had everyone on the edge of their seats, shouting “Amen” and “Let it loose” throughout his inspiration message based on the evening’s them, “Stand for Life.” Drawing on an exhortation he once received from his own father, Pastor Lusk shared what we as Christians must do better than anyone else inn order to win the battle for life: Love, serve, pray, believe and give.”
Dale was thrilled to have spent some quality time with Bella’s Keynote Speaker, Pastor Herb Lusk. It is the FHA’s plans to bring Pastor Lusk BACK to South Dakota for several future FHA speaking opportunities. Pastor Lusk is the Senior Pastor at the Greater Exodus Baptist Church in Philadelphia. He is also a former running back for the Philadelphia Eagles but left this position to commit to the service of those in poverty including the jobless, the homeless, the hungry, and those in prison and their children. He has been featured on many national news broadcasts and has received countless awards, honors and citations. In 2005, Philadelphia Magazine named Pastor Lusk as one of Philadelphia’s 50 most influential leaders.
Please join with Dale Bartscher and the FHA as we pray that God opens a ‘door of opportunity’ for Pastor Lusk to return to South Dakota in 2014
