Pastor Don was an exceptional man and a giant of the faith. Pulled off of the mission field from the Philippines to run the family business after a family tragedy, Don and Marlene glorified God by becoming highly successful in the retirement home business, owning multiple convalescent centers in different parts of the country. While I may be understating his incredible business success, Pastor Don with Marlene always remembered the poor (as scripture reminds us) and their hearts were never far from the Philippines, where God had originally called them.
With a goal of always serving others first, and while using his finances to bless the kingdom, Don made a kingdom impact both locally and globally. Here at home he served as an elder in his church—Churchome (formerly The City Church)—as well as on multiple boards. Abroad he visited at least 69-countries, helped to plant over 1,000-churches, and was a featured speaker at ministry conventions, conferences and churches. Whether on the mission field, in business, or as a husband to Marlene and a father to their four boys, Don Ostrom led a life that glorified God and richly blessed others.

Don and Marlene Ostrom were mentors to my wife Judy and I right from the beginning when we first met them in 1970. As a young businessman, Don gave me excellent advice for my business, DIPPY DUCK Car Wash. I learned so much traveling with him, whether he was flying his airplane taking us to a meeting or around the world. His incredible ability to lead people into worship was always a highlight. When Judy and I entered the mission field, Don and Marlene were wonderful supporters. Interestingly, I'm writing this today from the Philippines where I now live and travel from, the country they were called to to be missionaries. I relay my prayers to Marlene and the whole Ostrom family.
