Garren is 13 years old, he turns 14 this coming Saturday. He is all boy. He loves football. His favorite team is the Steelers - imagine his disappointment when he wakes up to find out the Steelers lost the Super Bowl!
Garren has been playing football for several years. His dream is to play in the NFL one day. He played quarterback two years, and though he is a good leader, and his team loves him, he prefers defense. "I like to hit - and the coaches won't let me hit when I play quarterback!" Like I said before...all boy.
Garren is known at school for his humor and quick wit. The students love it, and most of the teachers do not. It has gotten him in trouble several times. But the truth is, he is pretty funny. He loves to make people laugh. I try to imagine what he would be saying about himself if he could see himself right now.
Garren is a believer in Jesus Christ. Within the last year I was baptizing a line of people in a church service. I looked up to see who was next, and there stood Garren. It was an honor as his father and pastor to baptize him.
There is so much more I could say. But that should give you a little bit of insight into this amazing boy.
Thank you for your continued prayers.
