Good News - August 2018

My Kinda Guy Long hair and black leather sports jacket; my kinda guy. The first time I laid eyes on Rick was at service at Cal- vary Chapel many years ago. I didn't know him, but he seemed to know me because he had this huge charismatic smile and heartily shook my hand and called me brother. My hair is long and I love wearing leather, so per- haps it was in my former life, in some back stage intro- duction perhaps? I sat somewhat distracted searching my memory, not Springfield, Derringer? Rick who? After the service I watched “Rick” work the crowd, and he's smiling at everyone and calling everyone brother. Silly me. Through the years I've become enamored with just how much love and happiness Rick Andreassen shares and EVERYONE seems to know "Coach Rick" and loves him; truly an unforgettable character. We are honored to have Coach Rick Andreassen grace the cover of this month's Good News; Editor Shelly Pond profiles the impactful ministry his SAINTS school pro- gram is delivering in healthy minds and bodies in observance of Christ-like principles. Well done brother! “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies” (Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV). - Les PUBLISHER 2 AUGUST 2018 Good News • South Florida Edition South Florida Edition • Good News •August 2018 • Volume 20, Issue 5 - Leslie J.
