A a Rescue Mission founded la years ago on a Faith and a shoestring is surviving a and growing a on that diet. Throughout its life the John 3 16 Mission has depended on Faith Hope and Charity. Now though its founder has gone it plans to expand both its services and its physical facilities with Faith that the Bills somehow will be paid. They always have been since the Rev. Robert Geisinger started the Mission oct. 18, 1952, in a former fish Market. It moved later to a three store building near downtown Tulsa. Now those quarters Are too Small and in need of repair. Difference of opinion Geisinger left the Mission last november attributing his resignation to differences of opinion with the Board of the nonprofit institution. But the Mission Wasny to a Day without a director. The Rev. Al Seitz had come to Tulsa after finishing a youth for Christ leadership school and in the words of Board member Bob Dickson was a waiting for he did no to know what when Geisinger resigned. Seitz took Over next Day. Now the Mission is negotiating for a larger building and planning to expand its services to accommodate destitute families and footloose youngsters As Well As the derelicts who now i Are furnished food Beds clothes and daily religious services. Of the building Dickson a lumber and hardware dealer says. A we done to know How we re going to for it. We expect it will come along just like Al lived in Faith Seitz echoes this saying a a we la take the new building on similar Faith kept Geisinger going in the years he headed John 3 16.
