I’ve known Carl and Judy Elmer for over 20 years, and have been honored to be their neighbor and have watched the impact of their dream unfold. Carl has told the story of God as potter again and again before tens of thousands of people.
Our hearts were shocked last week when we learned Carl had suffered a blood clot. After surgery he is now recovering and many of us throughout the community are in the hope and prayer that he will be gaining healing and strength every day.
At WaterStep, Carl plays a huge role in our efforts to save lives with safe water. Carl faithfully helps around WaterStep. Every Tuesday and Thursday, he does maintenance work, hangs up art work, fixes door handles and ceiling tiles, trims the lawn, and anything else needed. All the while and most importantly, he is an encourager and reminder of God’s work in our daily midst. He helps with special events as well, figuring out how to house equipment and preparing the building for those activities and trainings that help us saves lives.
Carl is loved by everyone at WaterStep. Without his efforts to keep the office up and running, our mission would not be achieved. We love you Carl and miss your quiet demenor and quick smile in the halls. Today we pray for a quick healing and are anxious to hear your “story” when you return.
