Pastor Jim and Ruth Riccitelli

I got the latest news about Pastor Jim Riccitelli and his wife Ruth - my Godparents.  They're living in the Shell Point Retirement Community in Ft. Meyers, Florida.  When the elevator in their building needed some extensive repair, they were evicted from their apartment and relocated to an assisted living facility.  They liked it so much they decided to stay.

You can read the entire article online at Riccitellis Test Assisted Living at The Springs (go to page 31); I've included a copy here (used without permission).

Pastor Jim and Ruth
Although it isn't show here, Jim has a brand new electric scooter that he's learning to drive.  I gather it uses a joystick rather than a steering wheel, which poses something of a challenge to a man used to driving his truck across the plains of Burkina Faso.

We are taught that the Lord will provide for us, and He certainly has done for Pastor Jim and Ruth.  When they decided to move to Florida, their house sold in a few weeks for the asking price.  They have a very nice home in Florida, where they've made many new friends, and, from what I hear, Pastor Jim is left retirement for the nth time.
