For the 3rd year in a row, we were able to host the Mighty Man Mudder on our uncle’s farm. It is a mud run geared at elementary and middle school aged kids. The kids were mostly from our CC campus, our church family, and friends. The first year there were 40 participants, then 50 the next year, and 77 this year.
I feel very blessed to be able to organize this event each year. Many of our friends and family help out during the week leading up to the event. Each year God has given me the energy and creativity to develop new obstacles. This year we had 26 obstacles in the 0.75 mile course.
I love seeing the excitement as a child completes an obstacle that they did not think they could do. After the run was over, most of the kids stayed and kept trying obstacles. Occasionally I would see a child run to their parents shouting, “Did you see that? I did it!”
I am continually amazed how the Lord continues to match the activities that I love with ministry opportunities. (Disc golf is my favorite sport, and this year God has connected me with Eagles Wings – a Christian disc golf ministry.)
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
