Welcome to Impart Ministries Online.
April 22, 2010 brought significant changes to Impart Ministries. Darryl Rodman, president and leader, suffered a major heart attack and subsequent stroke in Providence, RI. Darryl was the main force behind this website and unfortunately due to my role as advocate and resultant caregiver position we have not updated this website since his incident. I know most of you who know us are well aware of the past three years. Those wandering by do not. Our God, who is rich is grace, mercy and wisdom took Darryl home October 5, 2012. We had a wonderful home going service "party" for him. It is comforting to know that he is free once again to worship our God with liberty.
God has confirmed that Impart Ministries still has a role to play in the world today. Our vision has not changed. We continue with our Board of Directors: Pastors David and Linda Jenkins from Living Faith Christian Center, Oak Harbor, Washington; Pastors Andrew and Rosanna Phillips from Rock View Church, Kent, Washington and Elizabeth Haslet, Oak Harbor, Washington. We are supported with much wisdom and encouragement from our Board of Advisors as well. Pastors Michael and Reshaun Hurley from Life Church, Oak Harbor, Washington, Pastors Bruce and Kathy Norquist from The Evergreen Church, Burien, Washington and Pastors Steve and Kim Schmelzer from Joy Christian Fellowship, Medford, Oregon. Darryl's motto has been stirring my heart: The best is yet to come. I believe by faith this is true for Impart Ministries.

The month of August
has been beautiful here on Whidbey Island. Thanks to my daughter
Elizabeth I have actually made it to the beach a few times. A few weeks
ago one of her friends organized a trip to a new beach. It was one I had
never heard of in all my growing up years here on the island. It is
called Double Bluff, and is about a forty minute drive from our home on the
north end of the island.
Over 25 years ago our entire family was invited to dinner at a young couple in our church. They had two young daughters and we had become friends. Our children were much older than their daughters, but they wanted our whole family to go. The behind the scenes plot was that the wife's (Laura) brother was coming for a Christmas visit.. He was a senior in high school, Rosanna a junior. She wanted him to meet our daughter Rosanna! Shyly they got to know each other.
Any of you been watching the Olympics? I did some research
and discovered there were about 11,400 athletes competing from 205 nations.
Each of these individuals came with their own back story. We
haven't heard them all, but I can only imagine that a common thread for each of
them was a decision to set a goal for them to become an Olympian. Some
made the decision as a child, others as teen agers but making that choice to go
Last weekend I had the privilege of
celebrating my friend (and my daughter in law Becca's aunt) Eva Bunika's
seventy fifth birthday. The planned a wonderful surprise celebration for
her. She and her family came to this country from Romania to escape the
Communist persecution of Christians. As part of the celebration Becca
asked me to pray about sharing any special words or prayer for her.
Yesterday my sisters and I had the opportunity to step back in
time and be involved in a KING TV news segment about our father. In the
early 60's, as part of the Interstate Freeway expansion, many houses in the
Seattle area were takeover by imminent domain to make room for what is now I 5.
My father came up with the idea of buying those homes and barging them to
our island. He bought them from the city for $1 to $350. He moved
The Church Needs Me (and You)
Last week I received an email response from a reader. A writer always likes to know that people are reading their writings and
an even greater bonus is if it causes the reader to ponder their life and make
changes. I received a response from someone last week that got me to
think! She thanked me for the article because she realized that she had
unwittingly fallen into wearing some old clothes (old thoughts and responses
Summer is coming slowly to Whidbey Island. I've heard
about the extreme heat in the other parts of our country and even Seattle has
had its share of 80 degree temperatures. Not so much where I live.
We live in what is known as a temperate zone, with winds cooling our
island almost every evening. This loves- warm- weather person finds it
hard to shed my winter clothes. I cautiously venture out in sandals and
