A Portrait of the Artist

JimmieSue HobertEver wonder who the artists were who painted the mural in the Chapel? Pictured here is JimmieSue Hobert.

In September 2001, JimmieSue and husband Lee Hobert completed the mural that has come to embody the Gospel Rescue Mission.

The Good Samaritan featured in the mural represents the Mission’s organizing principal. And, no visitor seeing the three New Testament stories on display there in the last 25 years could help but be inspired.

The mural holds a special memory for JimmieSue as well. This was the last project she and Lee did together before he died less than 3 years later in March 2004.

JimmieSue returned in 2013 to make some repairs from a roof leak. On 11 March 2016, after almost 3 years to pay us a visit. Yes, there are a few scuffs and scratches she’ll repair sometime soon. No hurry though. Like all things done for Christ, the Hobert’s artistry will endure.

Thank you for your friendship and support, JimmieSue.
