We can all breathe a sigh of relief. It's all over. Demons or no demons. And to brag on J for a minute, he did a phenomenal job. Phenomenal. I'm so proud of him. We don't have a final head count but it was in the neighborhood of 800 people and the money raised was quite impressive. We are so thankful to God for carrying us through this planning process. I say us because even though it's J (and his team of volunteers) who carries this responsibility, the stress is immense in my household. I do very little (other than some program planning and scheduling) for the evening but I feel it during the weeks leading up to the event.
His organization will be able to do many new programs and services for the 7000 plus International Students who come to our area universities as a result of the funding that came in Saturday night. To God be all the praise and glory forever and ever, Amen.
