I had the privilege of playing Firestone South yesterday. Jay Biggs, one of the pros at the club, graciously invited me to be part of a foursome. The course was spectacular and the day pristine. But the reason we gathered to play golf was far more important than any score we shot (thank heavens!).
This Fall, Trent, Andy and Jay are putting together a golf outing at Firestone to raise resources for Compassion International’s AIDS initiative in Tanzania, Africa. These three guys are convinced that they can secure more than $100,000 through this effort–and after spending the afternoon with them, I’m convinced as well.
What I love about these guys is that they’re taking the gifts and abilities God has given them and putting them to use to build God’s Kingdom now and forever.
So keep your eyes and ears open for more details on this upcoming event. We’ll have a lot of fun and help children on the margins of society in the process.
Golf, and saving children, it doesn’t get better then that.
I was thinking Dodge Ball and saving Children couldn’t get better! :-)
Greg, can you have someone contact me regarding the trip to Tanzania in the fall? We adopted a young lady from there through Compassion. I am trying to verify any openings for me to possibly accompany; or do you know of any other Teams going that I could tag along with?
