Our fund raising BBQ was a fantastic success!!!!
Our church family and our great community pulled together and put on a Santa Maria style BBQ to help raise money for Sara’s surgery. Thanks to the very hard work of many loved ones and the amazing generosity of all, a profit of $14,560 was raised!!!!
A very sincere thank you to those who came all the way from Oxnard PD and Ventura County Sheriff’s, bringing with them a very generous gift!!!
Our family also humbly thanks all who were involved in putting this on. You were all tremendous; it was a lot of hard work! Know that we understand how blessed we are to have you in our lives (although, I’m sure we don’t appreciate you half as much as you deserve!). Many thanks to our organizers: the Kliewer and Franklin families.
How bountifully our God supplies our needs!!! The day was full of excellent food, great fellowship and a tremendous outpouring of support. It was beautiful. If you weren’t able to make itâ€”you missed out on the food, but you can relive the day by visiting our pictures section!
When you’re done reliving the BBQâ€¦ Relax over a good new story from Randy Janes! (Thanks Randy!)
We do still plead for your prayers. Sara had a disappointment last Wednesdayâ€”the surgeon’s office called and canceled her appointment an hour before it was scheduled (for no reason that we know of). This was after they had already driven down! Most frustrating was that they rescheduled for March 28th, which obviously sets back the surgery. Still, we know that our hope is not in doctors or new procedures. We ask for prayers that Sara’s brain would stay safe until the surgery. Also, please be praying that this surgery would be the means that God would chose to heal her. We are confident that His plan and ways are best!!
Again, thank you, thank you for your prayers. It is a blessing to be so supported!
