As I sit here in the Atlanta airport, I thought I would provide a really quick update on the tournament results and how our expectations were blown away. First off, I can’t start a post about the golf tournament without talking about our volunteers. We were overwhelmed with support from them. We are humbled and grateful how our family and friends showed up in droves to support our son and us. There is ABSOLUTELY no way we could have pulled something like this off without you.
Second, congratulations to Adam Meyers, the new owner of a YETI cooler! Adam and his new bride, Shelby, are a special couple to us. We were introduced to them a couple of months ago when we started a marriage mentorship with them to start off their marriage. Don’t worry though, we gave them enough knowledge to get their marriage through at least 2 months without meeting, so they should be able to make it until we get back J. They’re a great couple and it couldn’t have happened to them at a better time! Happy Marriage to you!
Last but not least, we spent several HOURS trying to count the total funds we were able to raise through this event. By God’s grace, we raised over $6,000 total!!! You guys are amazing. I was counting it out and became overwhelmed by how generous everyone has been to our family. We can’t thank everyone enough for your help. Seriously…I (even though I’ve been an emotional wreck lately) just started crying as I was adding up how much we raised for our son. I stopped several times through the process to thank God for providing. He called us to this, and He has carried us here. Our weaknesses are nothing compared to His grace.
This will be our last blog post before Africa. We’ll try to keep it updated as we can, but more importantly, we’ll be spending time with our son. We cannot wait!!!
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. Brothers, pray for us.
