This past Saturday we held our 6th Annual Cabin Fever Cornhole Tournament at the church to raise money for our SH Summer Mission Trip. We set our goals at having over 132 teams play in the tournament and to raise over $9,000 for our trip.
I am thrilled to announce that we had 159 teams compete in this year’s event and we were able to raise over $10,000 for our trip this summer. We definitely had some help from some folks in higher places when it came to the weather. On Wednesday before the tournament we got slammed with ANOTHER Winter storm that took out power, closed schools and made life miserable….again in NE Ohio. On Sunday, the day after the tournament it was hovering around 0 degrees out and the big fan in the sky was set on hurricane strength. Somehow in the middle of this on Saturday we managed sunny skies, 44 degrees, zero precipitation and just enough wind to make our World Record Shot a bit difficult.
I am in awe of how many people give so much every single year to make this event possible. I cant begin to list all of the people and organizations that helped us get ready for Saturday’s big event. From all of us going on the trip this summer…..thank-you. Your support and generosity is providing us with the opportunity to travel to New Jersey and assist the people there with the cleanup from Superstorm Sandy. This trip is providing lots of teenagers with their first exposure to serving and what it truly looks like to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This trip changes lives and changes our world one person at a time.
I can’t wait to tell you about it when we get home.
Until then….please continue to pray for everyone going on this trip and for the rockstars at A Future With Hope in New Jersey as they scramble to find a way to prepare for our team to arrive.
God is good.
