So many stories to tell, and many pictures to post...
I will give the highlights right now, and post more in depth stories at a later time. Right now, I am still processing emotionally, mentally and spiritually all that happened that night. But basically, it was an incredible night...
-$380,000 was raised towards CF Research!
-We filled all 600 spots, and then some
-The surfing industry understands CF and wants to do MORE to help find a cure!
-My speech went SO well- God truly intervened, took away my nervousness and the words came out exactly as I had prayed. the Holy spirit was with me, and with the people in the room.
-It was a fun night :)
-I was blessed by ALL my friends there to support me and work hard behind the scenes to help this event go on...knowing they were there to support me, I was humbled.
-All surfing companies and media can't wait to be involved for years to come...until a cure is found.
-God is working, I have a feeling that much is in store for me as I keep being involved with this.
-I was sustained physically thorough a long night of pictures, talking with people, and God shone through me.
-I was able to connect with families and CF patients that night, how awesome!
-Oh...and someone donated a Laird Hamilton Paddle board, and lessons with him, to me :). I am stoked!!
More to come...here are a few pics with my friends (aka the awesome volunteers). I'll download some more, these are all I have on my computer right now.
Thank you all for praying for me- it was an amazing night, no words can describe it...
