Special Visitors

Many of you have dropped by over the past couple of weeks. We are so thankful for the encouragement that brings. I wanted to point out two special visits that we have had in the past couple of days:

Yesterday, one of the football coaches dropped by with something special for Garren. He said,"Since Garren is going to rehab this week, he's going to need this" and he handed me Garren's football jersey. Awesome!

This afternoon we got a visit from Michael Abbott. Michael is in the first grade at United Faith, and is working on his LOVE project for school. He decided to do his LOVE project for Garren. Michael sent out a letter to all of his friends and family, asking for money to help us cover some of the costs for food. Michael dropped by this afternoon with his family to meet us and to deliver the funds he had raised.

Michael, it was great to meet you today. Thank you for putting so much hard work into your LOVE project, and thank you for doing this for Garren. It means a lot!

So great to read and listen at how people have been touched and motivated by Garren's story. Glad you're surrounded by people who genuinely care and want to help...a special coach indeed and a precious little boy with a big heart...God has brought each one in to your lives for a reason. As I said in an earlier post, Garren has touched hearts from the very young, to the very old, and everything in between. Continuing to pray... In for the long haul, The Sisk Family
