Those quilts will look good in someone's home. I thought he was a chaplain?

i don't know where you are getting your information but like i said before you are welcome to come to the shelter and see for yourself where the blankets are, but since i know you won't do that i will tell you. some are being used by the people we are helping now and the others are in my office waiting to be used, i do NOT sell these blankets these women took alot of hard heartfelt time making these blankets for us and i appreciate it so much i would NOT dishonor their wishes in anyway i appreciate them and everyone else who has helped make my mission a success

Wow, defensive aren't we. Someone offers a compliment on those beautiful quilts and you are up in arms. Usually someone that defensive is hiding something.

You said: "who has helped make my mission a success". I would think a man of God would acknowledge this as God's Mission, not "Your" mission.

eye, I agree. The "Rev." sounds a little snippy, not tolerant & patient. I believe God said to correct people with love. That was pretty hatin'.

Everyone can say what they want to say about Chaplain Wildman but I can tell you first hand that this man will be there and help anyone when in need. I have been at the hands of his help when I lost my job and we could not feed our family. He was there when no one else was. This man would take his shirt off his back for you and all he wants to do is help people. All I have seen on here is people bashing him and thats not right. Some people call themselves Christians but are just judging instead of being judged. Please read your Bible alittle more. And Chaplain Wildman keep your faith and God will show you the way.

Man, what a thread, all because I paid a compliment to the quilts. Next thing I know this man, who to "helped out" is ready for sainthood, is wigged out. No one is judging him, I don't know him so I could not judge him, but his actions I can judge and his instant defensive mode was as unjustified as your response above. I am glad he was able to help you but this man needs to get his facts straight. One time he says "I have helped 200 people." The next time he is on the news he says "I have helped 300 people". So I am curious, is it 200, 300 or do we add the numbers together and come up with 500. Maybe he learned that working with Reverend Rice. Oh, better watch out I am judging again.
