Ken Northenscold (Good Samaritan Society)


It seems like such a long time ago when we first started working together on my “plan”. I’m not sure how we got matched up but I thank God that you were the one helping me out. Sometimes we wonder if we really make a difference, given our specific job choice. You, indeed, did make a difference with my education, funding, personal interests and concerns, and lastly, most importantly, your support throughout the whole process. When I left you a voicemail, you returned it, when I made a financial request, you worked hard to get it approved. For that I’m grateful for you and for God putting you in the right place at the right time.

As I go from my current LPN position at Good Samaritan in Pine River, working full-time, to my continued education at CLC for an RN, I hope you won’t mind if I brag about you and our accomplishments. With my new “set of skills”, I feel I’m prepared and equipped to be a more valuable contributor to our community as a skilled nurse. My end goal is to be a hospice nurse or a diabetic educator. Once again, this in thanks to you and our Heavenly Father for His direction and provision.
