Over the last three and a half months, I have engaged in a fundraising campaign. The name of the campaign was called 100 days to save a life. The campaign ended on May 13. As a result of the campaign, we were able to raise $6,095. I am grateful to everyone would wanted to and decide to donate. I could have not done it alone. I had a team of friends to help. My friends that helped were Tieler Giles, Takia Lamb, Cheeritza St. Germain, Darrick Brown, Tyrel Shields, Kimiko Cheely and India Lee. I am happy to have friends that are willing to help.
My friends are the epitome of the verses in Colossians chapter 2 saying, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” They live their lives in light of Christ’s love, the truths He taught, and strive to manifest His will in their lives. I am humbled to have the privilege of calling them friends. This fundraiser has reinforced the idea that a cord of three strands is not easily broken, and having their assistance and love proved it.
I pray that everyone is made aware of the friends they have. Some are lifting you up, while some hold you back from achieving your goals. I hope and sincerely pray that you take an honest inventory of your friends and believe what is shown.
