We Won’t Forget

Yesterday we celebrated the 21st anniversary of an awful day in the life of our country – September 11th.

Many of you have heard the story of how 911 impacted the ministry of America’s Keswick in a powerful way.

Don Peterson was a Board member and loved the ministry of the Colony of Mercy. Don personally counseled and mentored men who were in the program, and he and his wife, Jean, personally mentored and cared for men after they graduated. He even helped several men get mortgages and gain financial stability.

On September 11th, Don and Jean arrived at the Newark Airport to fly to California for a family reunion. Because they arrived early, they were bumped onto Flight #93.

Now here is the rest of the story. Months after this horrific tragedy, we heard a story that when the rescue workers arrived on the scene, the only two visible things found was a tire and Bible.
