An Important Ministry Update

An Important Ministry Update

Dear Friend of SVPS,

I am writing to let you know of a difficult personal journey for Ron Hosler, husband of SVPS President Lisa Hosler, and the temporary impact this has on Lisa’s presence at the ministry.

At the end of August, Ron was diagnosed with brain cancer. He had surgery to remove the tumor and is now undergoing simultaneous chemotherapy and radiation.

Lisa said, “We know Jesus is with us, and He is making His presence extremely evident. Yet it is still extremely challenging. Through all of it, we want Jesus to get great glory in this unexpected journey. Unexpected to us, but known by Him.”

Ron and Lisa have a CaringBridge website where they share updates and prayer requests: Visitors can also leave comments.

Lisa is taking time off from the ministry to support and care for Ron. Please know that we have a seasoned and capable staff that is ensuring SVPS’s mission—to align with God to champion the gospel of Jesus and the sacredness of human life—advances steadily in Lisa’s absence.

Kati Swisher, our Vice President of Stewardship and Resources, is covering Lisa’s immediate responsibilities until she returns to SVPS. Kati has served with the ministry for 24 years, overseeing aspects that range from fundraising to client services.

We rest in our Lord’s care for Ron and Lisa, and ask for your prayers as they journey with Jesus in this season of suffering and intimacy with Him. We also appreciate your prayers for SVPS and for the women, men, and teens that we serve. Thank you for your continued support of SVPS.

In Christ,

Barry Naum

SVPS Board Chairman
