How AMYazing!

I got hijacked.  Yep, I said "yes" I'd help. So, two weeks before the event, I've been handed the job of Volunteer Coordinator after their original bowed out.

What event?

The inaugural Reston Youth Triathlon, in memory of Amy Boyle.  Amy lost her battle with brain cancer in 2008. She was 12 years old.  But to the end, she praised God and spoke of Jesus to her friends.  Three of her close classmates have kept her legacy of fitness and fun alive, forming a group called Amy's Amigos to raise money for brain cancer research and to service for others.  They are now high schoolers, and decided to establish a youth triathlon in our community.

It's May 22.  If you're a praying person, pray that the event will be safe, and that God will be glorified.  Two of the friends come from homes where God is a stranger to them.  That part of Amy's legacy has yet to bear fruit...but I am confident that it will, in His time.

And pray for me that I will be God-honoring in my duties as Volunteer Coordinator.  Even when only half the number we need are on the list yet.

Lean on God and you'll be an AmyAzing blessing as coordinator and surprise even yourself. I said a prayer for you and the event.
