God’s Pathway For Me

by Jim Weikal

I came to the Bill Rudge Ministries (BRM) in 1986 looking for someone who could teach me to serve the Lord. I had a desire to serve but was not sure how to go about doing it. I understood from Scripture that Joshua had learned from Moses and Timothy had been instructed by Paul, so I knew the necessity of learning from someone who was following the Lord.

Dick Hetrick

Dick Hetrick has a heart for wood as well as a heart for Christ.

A visit with Dave Fisher of Greenville during Pioneer Craft Days spurred Dick's interest in woodcarving. Dave helped him finish a bowl started with his brother-in-law, Ed, before his passing because Dick wanted to give it to his sister-in-law as a present. Dave continues to mentor and encourage Dick.

After retiring from the Army Corps of Engineers in 2011, Dick took a woodcarving course in Asheville, NC, and classes in Plymouth, Mass.
