FESCO

Every now and then you get a phone call that makes you sit back in your chair, throw up your hands and just laugh in wonder at how God works.

Monday and Tuesday we’re putting on our best clothes and heading downtown for a dinner and program sponsored by FESCO (Foundation for Encouragement of Social Contribution.) Wheelchairs of Hope will be recognized with a $6,000 award, and 400 people will hear about the project, most for the first time. We will also have the opportunity to network at a whole new level. With this many people there, pray that God will put us in the right place at the right time, and give us the words we need.

Both the fundraiser and the FESCO grant are a huge answer to prayer, as we were scraping the bottom of the barrel, and wondering how God was going to provide with a commitment from another major donor expiring.
