I’m excited to pass along the good news that I will start a new job Monday with Richardson Products, Inc.
Through a mutual friend [thanks Al!], I met Rich Richardson, founder/owner/chief guru of RPI. Rich began the company out of his home in 1989 by manufacturing a single product to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities. From that simple beginning, RPI has experienced incredible growth and now designs/distributes nearly 1,300 products out of two sites in the Frankfort, IL area. To see one of the company’s latest inventions, go here.
Rich mentioned my situation to Jeff Dungan, VP of Operations, who called yesterday needing help running freight back and forth between their two sites, pulling orders, and assembling products. It’s a full-time opportunity that will give me flexibility to continue looking for other work [should the Lord be using this only for the interim] or the means to settle in at RPI and see what happens. Either way, I clearly sense the Lord’s provision in this and I’m excited to see what He teaches me in/through it.
Many thanks to all who have badgered Jesus on our behalf and, above all, I give “thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ...” -Ephesians 5:20
