The idea behind September to Remember (S2R) is more than just 4 awesome activities. It's also about unveiling all the NEW things that God is in the midst of doing in and through this ministry. We want to share our excitment with you. And we want you to be a part of what's going on in GTD.
Over the past 4 years we have been bogged down with surviving the national economic mess along with transitioning from 5 fulltime employees & 20+ volunteers to only 2 fulltime employees and a few volunteers (with the same amount of work load). It's been a MONSTER of a task, but we have stayed the course. We have persevered. And now we are only a few hurdles & hopefully one last financial crisis away from entering the Promise Land!!
For the first time in years I (Doug) have time to pour into new developments, needed improvements, and vision casting. For the first time in years we are getting ahead of "the game". The 2012 Public Event Calendar is basically done and we are believing God for the 2012 PRIVATE Event Calendar to be completed by the end of October!! THAT's HUGE!! It's unprecedented in GTD!!
You know that feeling that you get when you can see the light at the end of the tunnel... when you exert yourself so much to get to the finish line that your body wants to collapse... then you turn the corner and you can see the finish line. Your whole body becomes rejuvenated. Your very soul is revived. And you break out in chills as you realize, "I'm going to make it. I'm going to make it!! I'M GOING TO MAKE IT!!" That's what I'm experiencing right now.
We still have some hurdles to clear and a crisis to overcome, but I can see the finish line right around the corner. Thank you for your continuous prayers & support of GTD as we fight back to strong & stable health. All this month I'm pleased to share with you many things that we are working on. We are excited about all that God is doing right now in GTD. MANY UPDATES COMING!!!
