Thaddeus made over 70 blessing bags to be given to homeless people throughout our valley with the donations from his 8th birthday. He has partnered with another family that has been touched by childhood cancer; the Austin family. Their daughter Stephanie had a wish to pass out one million Bibles to those who have lost hope.
We met with her mom Debbie and got 72 bibles to include in Thaddeus' bags. They are beautiful, New Testament Bibles with leather covers. She also gave Jamie and I lovely Bible promise books.
This is what one of Thaddy's blessing bags looks like...

It would not have been possible without the donations from the Gorman football team!
From Stephanie's Wish webpage...
Shortly after Stephanie was diagnosed with childhood cancer, she had a dream. She told her momma that the Lord wanted her to get one million Bibles out to people who had lost hope. Stephanie mentioned the homeless, the abused, the incarcerated and anyone who is struggling in this life. So Stephanie's Wish was created.
Stephanie wanted to share God's Word, especially with those that need hope. She wanted all people to know that, no matter what our circumstance, we are loved by our Father in Heaven and that we are saved through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. She knew that God is with us each day through all of our struggles, worries, and difficulties to bring us the peace and love that each of us so desire and deserve.
Stephanie passed away in November 2013, after a long, hard fought battle with Ewing's Sarcoma cancer, but her parents know that she is now in God's Hands.
Please help us to fulfill Stephanie's Wish by putting God's Word into the hands of those who need hope and who need to remember that God loves each and every one of us. We can each do this by donating Bibles to organizations and/or individuals and then creating a log in on this site. Please share information about your experience with family and friends.We would also love to see your posts on our Facebook page.
Let God's Word and the work we do for God be the light that shines in each of our lives. Thank you so very much for helping us fulfill Stephanie's wish. God Bless you all.
