I Tri, He Flies

I want to take this opportunity to say a quick, "Thank you!" to the women who participated in the "I Tri, He Flies" fundraiser to benefit our ministry with MMS Aviation. Not only did they get up early Sunday morning to participate in a triathlon and spend several weeks training, but they also worked hard to get sponsors to donate to our ministry on their behalf. It really means a lot to us that they would support Tara by literally running alongside her (and biking and swimming!), and support our entire family by helping us raise the finances necessary to keep serving with MMS. We don't have the final total, but through this fundraiser we have already raised enough money to send the kids to Coshocton Christian School again this year!

These seven women participated in the Triathlon with Tara on Sunday morning (sorry, Deb, I didn't mean to block you out of the picture!)

In addition to the women pictured, there were several others who were unable to participate in the Triathlon, but still participated in fundraiser as "Super Fans".

We are thankful to have such great friends, and we are grateful for all the ways that God blesses us through them. It's our hope and prayer that our family will also be a blessing to them, and that we will be faithful stewards of all that has been entrusted to us.

I'm sure Tara would have more to say, but for now I'll just leave it at that. Thanks again, ladies, for your hard work and dedication, and congratulations on your accomplishment!
