I was so moved last week with the overwhelming show of support for our son Ian as Fr. Paul acknowledged his upcoming opportunity to represent the U.S. at the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria.
Ian has always loved sports, and figure skating has been his dream since he saw Tara Lipinski when he was a young teenager. For the last 9 years he has been pursuing that dream and is pretty pumped up about getting to this place now. He will be in Austria for the next couple weeks and will have a few moments of fame via television coverage of the Games.
Cinde and I are very proud of the hard work he has put into his skating, as well as many other activities he has had in his life. Through him we have learned a great deal about facing challenges and limitations. As we have done life together, we have been greatly blessed.
We can’t wait to cheer him on and represent his wider church family (“All y’all,” as Fr. Paul says) that are sending us. We are extremely grateful for the generous outpouring from the people of Christ Church that will allow Cinde and me to be there for this huge moment.
In addition to the Special Olympics, we will visit with SAMS missionary, Stephen V, to learn about his work in Europe and hopefully encourage him as he seeks to plant a church in a country where the Christian faith is simply a historical memory.
We ask for your prayers, that God, whose glory fills the whole creation and whose presence we find wherever we go, would preserve us as we travel, surround us with his loving care, protect us from every danger, and bring us in safety to our journey’s end (paraphrasing from BCP page 831). Through all three of us, may God shine His light and make Himself known.
