  • Pastor Schmidt was a kind and caring person. He was our Pastor at Good Hope for lots of years. I’ll always remember the years of Bible School and the fun we had. I was the church treasurer while he was at Good Hope and the conversations we had about that. Would have liked to have been at his service to see Philip, Paula, Delma and Anita. Our thoughts and prayers to all of you. God’s Blessings to you all. Jeanette
