Saying "Good-bye" is Hard . . .
 

. . . but it is something I believe the Lord would have me do. As of July 1, 2002, I will no longer be in the full-time employ of ICR. I will be available for various assignments, but the Lord is directing me into other fields of service. As I go, I want you to know how much I thank the Lord for each of you with whom I have had contact over these almost twenty years. Your calls, letters, and our visits or times together on one of ICR's tours, have stretched and encouraged me beyond anything words can describe. Through you and the godly way so many of you live your lives and allocate your resources, our gracious Lord has drawn me deeper into His word, and, therefore, into closer fellowship with Him.

I am also leaving some wonderful friends here at ICR but, I will see many of them at least weekly through church, and I can drop in and see others—something I certainly will do. Only eternity will reveal how much the Lord has used these dear friends to encourage my walk with and dependence upon Him. In this regard, I am so very thankful that looking to Him—His provision for His work here at the Institute—has been our watch-word. It is a policy begun under Dr. Henry Morris and our Chief Financial Officer, Don Rohrer, which continues under Dr. John Morris' able leadership.

Please be assured that my replacement will continue to maintain the same high Biblical standards that you have come to expect from ICR in the area of charitable estate planning—ICR's commitment to serving God's people will not change, even though the personel may change.

Lord willing, the remaining days the Lord has appointed for me will be invested in His kingdom through our local church and on the mission field. My heart-desire is to be used of Him to encourage brothers and sisters in their walk with Him.

Thankfully, this is not actually "good-bye," it is "until we meet again"—and what a GLORIOUS day that will be! Come quickly, Lord Jesus!!!

In His matchless love,

Tom Manning
