Life Issues Friends and supporters,
Life Issues' 3rd annual Next Step Walk / fundraiser was held on 8-29, and God gave us good weather, it was overcast and not too hot!
We had 51 walkers and almost that many volunteers, and we raised a little over $7000 for our addiction recovery ministry, praise the Lord!
A lot of planning and effort went into this years walk, and there are several post-walk items that need to be done, but it's so worth it!
Brian Hedges and Steve Fleshman gave the walkers a charge at the start line of the walk (Justice Center), and Pat Lee spoke to the group that stayed for breakfast at the end of the walk (HBF), about 4 commonalities that we all need, and that connect us all. Sara Jack gave one of the best testimonies I've ever heard during the pancake breakfast after Pat spoke, and I gave some Life Issues statistics and final thoughts before distributing 7 door prizes and drawing the winners of our raffle (Mitch and Kelly Tally, and Jenny Mohn-Myrick).
A hardy THANKS to all our sponsors, volunteers, booths, and church family, we couldn't do what we do without you!
As always, feel free to contact Steve Fleshman (816-896-5621) for more information, or shoot me an email if you would like to be on my distribution list to receive monthly updates about our ministry (firstname.lastname@example.org).
