Dish-Washing For God

In the last year of his life, an elderly man in his seventies worked as a dish washer in the Life Line Mission, on the San Francisco waterfront.

When he died, he bequeathed $150,000 to the mission which shelters destitute men and $128,000 to Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

Announcements of the unusual bequest came on Christmas Eve, when a check for $110,000 arrived on the Messiah College campus, with information that $18,000 would come later.

Dr. Ray Hostetler, president of the college knew the identity of the benefactor but respected his wish to remain anonymous.

President Hostetler said, “He apparently worked for years and saved almost every nickel he earned to invest in the stock market. The money will be used to build a kitchen in the New Eisenhower Student Center on the Grantham campus in honor of the memory of an old man who spent much time in working in the kitchen of a mission—washing dishes.”
