Auction Day!

Post by Gabriel » Sat Apr 28, 2018 5:27 am

I’m heading out the door to our annual fund raising auction. I’d appreciate prayer for the day. Not just the obvious financial needs, but also for me physically as it’s a long day. We also have students, families, and former students to monitor, manage, and whatnot. It’s usually a fun day, but a long one and one prone to possible crisis situations at every turn.

Praying for a very successful, crisis-free, day.

Thanks all. It was a tiring but successful day over all. No real drama or crisis to speak of and many really encouraging moments. My flies sold for a good amount, so that was good to see.

One tragic event at the beginning of the day though. I’ll put that in another thread.

Glad to hear it went off good.
