In a story on the local newspaper’s website, we learned that Captain Terry Masango from the Renton Salvation Army found out about the gift from a reporter at the paper.
They called to get his reaction to the news but since he hadn’t received word of the check yet, his excitement was tempered a bit. Once Masango got an official call from the representative for the estate he could really savor the wonderful blessing.
Just days before he learned about the gift, Masango met with an architect to talk about enlarging The Salvation Army worship center and headquarters so he could expand the after-school ministry and the popular Renton Community Supper program. The architect estimated the cost of Masango’s plan to be about $300-400,000.
He said he began making the plans to build “in faith,” hoping and praying for financial support. In less than a week, he had news of Mrs. Drydal’s gift. God’s timing is always perfect, isn’t it?
