“This is a love story, ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son...’ for me”, says SRM Board secretary, Ron Kramer. He volunteersat the Mission because God told him to. In 1998, he had the compelling feelingcome into his head and his heart, “Get involved with your church youth groupand volunteer at the Salina Rescue Mission” After trying to out-wait God for about a year, he became obedient and called Steve Kmetz to volunteer. “I was perfectly equipped for what I had volunteered for and I felt completely comfort-able and at home from the first moment. The Mission is a wonderful place!”Ron has a wonderful Christian wife, Jane, and a son, Kody. He enjoys camping,canoeing and backpacking when he’s not working as the Safety Director andOperations Administrator at Blue Beacon.Ron learned about Jesus at an early age but, like many, spent years pursuing thegood life in this world. “I could not do life on my own terms and I could not beself-sufficient, no matter how hard I tried. I desperately needed God. I got on myknees, used my God given free will, cried out to the Lord, “Please take me. I amempty and I am nothing. Please forgive me, Jesus, please come into my heart.Without You, I am and I have nothing. I will be obeident to You and follow Youthe rest of my life!”He says, “Life is not about me. It’s about my Lord, my God, my Master who Iserve; who saved me from my own misery and from Hell, for His purposes andnow it’s up to me to just DOIT.If you relate to Ron’s storythen now is the time for youto just DO IT!
