Ron Isaac, Elder

I have been a believer since my youth and have been attending and serving PHCC for over 40 years.  I was recently re-married after my first wife died more than a year ago.  I have taught Sunday School at PHCC for 30 years and served on the deacon and elder boards for over 40 years.  Serving the Lord in teaching and in leadership positions in the church has kept me busy in the Lord's business.  Being retired, I enjoy traveling and have done extensive hiking along the Pacific Crest Trail.  I also hunt elk and do a lot of reading in a variety of categories.
