Matching Funds For Wounded Warrior Event

An anonymous donor has said they will match funds donated up to $500.  The money will be used to offset housing costs for the R&R weekend in Fredericksburg March 21-23. This R&R coincides with Spring Break so guest houses and B&Bs we normally use are not available.

Housing may also be a problem for the April R&R.  It falls on the same weekend as the annual Wildflower Run and April is also a very busy time for the B&B/Guest House business. In addition, our first Adaptive Sports Military event will be in April.   Debbie and Mike McCurdy have agreed to match your donation dollar for dollar up to $500.

Don't let this opportunity to double your contribution slip by!!

Make your checks payable to FUMC-WWAN (Fredericksburg United Methodist Church-Wounded Warriors at Nebo) and send them to FUMC at 1800 N. Llano, Fredericksburg, TX 78624 or you can take your check to the office Monday - Thursday between 8am & 5pm and Friday 8am to Noon.  On line donations can also be made.  See the sidebar on this post for instructions.

THANK YOU for your support!!!

Things are Happening!!

What an exciting day.  Sharon & I went to Seguin to meet with Pastor Ron Welborn at the United Methodist Church.  The purpose of the meeting was two fold.  First to tell him about the Wounded Warriors at Nebo ministry and two to enlist his (and the church's) help.  As we said in an earlier blog, the Adaptive Sports Military Program is very interested in organizing day trips and/or sports weekends utilizing the Lazy U Ranch, Seguin,  in addition to locations in Fredericksburg.  To achieve this Seguin needs to have people in place to greet and feed the warriors and their families.  One could almost see the "wheels turning" as we visited with Pastor Ron.  He is eager to participate and believes there are others who will feel the same.

Sharon, Dottie, Dave, Craig, Jennifer, Brad & Michael
We left Pastor Ron and drove to Lazy U Ranch where we met Craig Russell, the owner, his daughter and the Adaptive Sports coaches.  They needed to look at the ranch to see if it would work for their warriors activities.  The end result is they can use it for kayaking, hiking, camping, cookouts and mountain biking on the hiking trails.
Craig, Michael, Joel, Brad & Dave
Took a picture of the "Guys" so the rookie (Joel) would be in it.

From there we took everyone back into town to look at the climbing walls at ZDT Amusement center.  The coaches were all very exited about them.  In addition, Danny (the owner) said the silos were also available if they wanted to use them.  They are basically climbing walls 60' high-yikes!! 

Is GOD good or what!!
