A little rest, a shower, and off to the McHenry VFW Deb and I go to attend the Steak Fry Fundraiser that same evening. Walking in the doors of the VFW was mind blowing. It was decorated so beautifully and the auction item tables arranged so amazingly! The smell of charcoal told us the grills were getting ready. Then at 6pm the people starting coming in and in and in and in. It was unbelievable the number of people who joined us that evening. A prayer from our Pastor Jeff Pittman started the steak grilling and Derek Galvicius our DJ got the house rocking. As dinner was winding down, Mark Mohr blessed us with his godly wisdom, humor, and heartfelt introduction of Deb and I that had me choking back tears of joy to offer our sincere thanks.
What a blessing to have so many family, friends, friends of friends attend this event and the generosity raised at the Ride for Africa and the Steak Fry events completed our funding needs for our first year and have begun to fund our second year!! Praise God! Deb and I are overwhelmed by God’s provision and the friendship and generosity of all you who made these two events such a blessing!!!
