2019 GOLF MARATHON
At the end of the 2019’s 100 Hole Golf Marathon, I found myself reflecting in total stillness, marveling at how incredible this community can be. I am humbled by the fact that so many joined us in this community work by providing support to our golfers either by sponsoring a golfer or by sponsoring this event.
We had over 20 golfers, 54 businesses sponsor the event and 40 business donated door prizes. With a total of over $70,000 raised.
Now imagine a young couple still in high school, faced with an unplanned pregnancy. Imagine, in their words, being afraid, ashamed, lost, no income, believing abortion was the only solution. Imagine family and friends conveying to you that you have ruined your life. Yet, one friend, in kindness and hope, directed them to us. Upon arrival, they communicated their belief in God, yet acknowledging their fear was bigger than their faith. The staff surrounded this couple, providing them with encouragement, support, resources, and education.
Now let's fast forward to today. This couple is married, have graduated from high school, and mom from college. They are purchasing their first home and baby number two is on the way. They acknowledge that it has been a tough journey, but state they are in awe of God's love for them and are so thankful for everyone that has helped them.
That is why we exist!
This is why you donated.
This is why you sponsored our golfers and/or the 100-Hole Golf Marathon.
Imagine having the privilege of being the arms and feet of Jesus in Loving People to Life! This dear couple is looking forward to the day when they can pay it forward, stating "they want to give back all the blessings that have been given to them so generously".
This story is a testament to the IMPORTANCE OF YOU, your support, and the vital "LIFE SAVING" work done at LPC. Thank you for responding to us in a way that is so clearly "Life Saving".
Take a moment to let that soak in. This is not a small thing.
I’m excited to share with you the total impact of your work, and to invite you to continue your support as we head towards the end of 2019.
