A Weekend of Service

Team Wing@Chosen Half Marathon
This weekend was one of service and fun. Saturday I ran with Amber (Jason) Wing in the Chosen Half Marathon in New Braunfels, TX. The Wing's are working toward adopting a child from China and the run helped raise funds to do that.

This was Amber's first half marathon, and she did great! The quote of the run was about mile 9 when she said, "I can't feel my legs!" Amber, every runner has said that some time in a run. Congratulations!

I ran this same run with Team Bowen last year, and almost to the day, they brought their adopted son, Nik, home from Russia. You can read about their journey in their blog, Our Adoption Journey.

I am honored to run with these families, and I look forward to running with a new family next year and seeing to which child God will lead Team Wing to adopt.

Can I say how proud I am of Legacy Church? After a wonderful gathered worship experience as the church, we headed out to a local school property to serve at the second annual West Plano Family Palooza.Thanks to the leadership of Markus Lloyd, Sarah Frazier, and the army of Legacy volunteers, it was a successful event.

The event was open to the community and gave everyone a chance to raise funds and food for Minnie's Food Pantry in Plano. Legacy Church also observed a Hunger Awareness Month by collecting food as the church and donating to Minnie's.

From adopting one child to serving thousands through a local event and food pantry, our lives can make a difference. Don't miss the chance to serve others and make an eternal difference in the name of Jesus.
