Resignation – July 22, 2010

I would have liked to have given this in person to the New Life Chapel family, but there has been a mixup and I will not be attending. Below is the resignation letter I wrote, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Know that we loved our time at New Life and wish my health would have allowed us to stay.

I have been waiting till I went back to work to determine if I agreed with something the Drs told me. They told me that while I was going back to work I would be very tired for 6 months to a year. They believe it will take that long to get back to where I was before the operation. They have told me that I should not work 2 jobs for a year, in my situation that would mean I could only work at Eaton or Pastor at New Life Chapel.

I wanted to see how I did for a week or two before I made a decision on what I was going to do. I have been praying that God would give me the strength and endurance to be able to continue with both. This week has shown me that having brain surgery takes a lot more out of you than I wanted to believe. After 3 days of being tired, today (Thursday) was pretty bad. For the first time in over a month I have gotten dizzy several times and lost my balance. I have also been so tired in the evening that there is no way I would be able to spend time prepping for a Sunday message or do anything else ministry oriented. I pretty much come home and sit on the couch until bed time.

With the Drs saying it will be 6 – 12 months before my strength returns, regrettably I will have to resign as Pastor of New Life Chapel. I will be of no use to my family, New Life Chapel, or Eaton if I push myself to hard and end up having additional medical issues.

This was not an easy decision for me to make, and was one that I did not want to concede to. But the physical issues I have been having today made it clear that I need to focus on my health first. I do not know why this has happened, but I know God has a plan and I am positive it is a great one. I look forward to seeing how He uses this situation to glorify His name.

May the Lord Bless You,

Robert Hudson

We will miss you! Robert, Alexis, and the kids.
