BENEFITING: HABITAT FOR HUMANITY-REBUILD MICHIGAN
EVENT: Mighty Mac Swim 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2016
When I was young, I wanted to fix cars just like my dad. I wanted to be a racecar driver like Richard Petty, and I loved playing football; at age 44 I am none of the above. When I was 9 yrs old I gave my life to Christ, and God had a different path for my life; A Road Not Taken, a journey I never anticipated. I am a Mortician, in the small town of Nashville, MI. I have been blessed with a career that changed my perspective on life and ultimately death. You see, I write the stories of the people that have formed the fabric of my community. Someday, someone will write MY story, and when they do I hope that story undeniably outlines a life directed by faith, with a marked sense of urgency; because “tomorrow” is NOT a guarantee. I love this verse: Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. God has blessed my family, we have always had a home, a job that provides, and we’ve never been alone. Others however, cannot say that. The stories of hard fought battles on the triathlon stage of years gone by will fade, the accumulated metals will tarnish. For me, the Mighty Mac is an opportunity to make a significant lasting change in the lives of families who need a place to call home. To live boldly walking faithfully through doors God has opened, even in the face of uncertainty. Can you really swim that far? Can you really raise that much money? You have visited my page, read part of my story, and now I’m asking you to join this part the journey by providing a generous donation to Habitat for Humanity on my behalf. The rules are simple, if a swimmer cannot meet the fundraising goal of $5,000 they are dropped from the event. Thank you and God Bless.
