Miracles For Fun Success

This past Saturday our friends hosted a benefit for our family to help raise funds for Brad's medical treatments. Brian Carnes, Chris & Rebecca Jones, Chris Gammons, & James McAdams spent the last three months pouring over plans to make the event a huge success. We were absolutely overwhelmed at the response from our community of friends.

The morning started at 5:00am as volunteers set up tables, tents, chairs, and made preparations at Battleground Golf Course. The team of organizers had thought of everything and every detail was quickly put into place to allow quick & easy check-in for the 144 golfers that attended.

With temperatures in the low 70's to start the day, God gave us the most memorable gift of excellent weather. It truly was the perfect day to spend outdoors: cool, breezy & clear. Some of the women were even complaining of being cold! Cold, in September...can you believe it?

The day was a huge success! Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and by the end, the event had raised over $40,000 in funds! It truly was unbelievable! I continue to be in awe of the awesome power of God & His ability to provide for ALL of our needs. The event was so successful due in part to the overwhelming support from our church, our friends, wonderful corporate sponsors, and numerous volunteers. Your love for Christ & His work is so apparent. We are blessed to know each of you.
