Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

First, I want to thank you for the prayers you’ve offered on behalf of myself, my family, and the churches involved in this calling process. For a multitude of reasons, coming to a decision regarding your call was extremely difficult. I have, however, finally decided to return the call to St. Stephen’s and to instead continue my service to the saints in Eagle River.

I know that it’s tiresome and disappointing to keep getting this sort of response, and I’m sorry to disappoint you once again. But I know that the Lord has better things in store for you. My prayer for you today is that the Lord would once again refresh you with the peace of knowing that “in all things, God works for the good of those who love him,” and that in due time he will send you just the right man for your church.
Your brother in Christ,

Pastor Joshua Odell
