Sharathon 2011

29 Mar

Ohhh it is has been far too long! This past week has been wild!

As some of you may already know, at WEEC we had our annual Sharathon Fundraiser. We kicked it off on Tuesday March 22 and we finished up at the stroke of midnight on Friday March.  Our goal was to raise $600,000 and YOU (our wonderful listeners) helped us to come up with a 66% of our goal! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

(As a side note, it is not too late to make a Faith Promise! If the Lord leads you to do so please give us a call @ 937.399.7837 OR go to http://www.weec.org and click on the FLASHING RED SIGN that says “make a faith promise”.  YOU CAN’T MISS IT!)

In our staff meeting this past Monday March 21st,  I sat in awe as my co-workers shared stories of past SHARATHON events. The room was overflowing with emotions of both gratitude and loss. Loss because of the four auxiliary members who went home to be with the Lord and gratitude because we were so blessed to have had them in our lives.

While I never had the privilege of meeting these people I walked away from that meeting feeling a overwhelming sense of love for them. Chris Grindrod said it perfectly,” Our auxiliary members are precious. There are not many people in the world who graciously give up their time to come help us. Don’t take them for granted”.
