I am very excited to report that Barnes and Noble has picked up Faith in the Freshman! That means the book can be ordered on-line at www.barnesandnoble.com. Copies will also be available in Barnes and Noble stores (or able to be ordered if the store doesn’t have any in stock). Thanks to all of you who have read this “Story of Hopes and Hoops.” Special thanks to the many who have taken time to write or call me with reactions and feedback!
We are getting close to ordering our third printing and my speaking calendar is getting much busier, too. Remember, every dollar raised goes to support Concordia’s ministry and the Juvenile Diabetes research Foundation!
She did it! 105 miles in 105 degree temperatures through Death Valley, California on her bicycle. Tammy Ferry’s months of training paid off. So did her fund-raising. She gathered more than $5000 for JDRF–the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Thanks so much to everyone who made a contribution. Research draws us closer each day to finding a cure to type 1 diabetes. You are helping to make that quest a success.
Her ride began Saturday morning at 7 o’clock. Tammy was in the saddle for 7 1/2 hours in what she described as “sort of a surreal experience.” The magnicent, rugged beauty provided a scenic backdrop for the riders–about 175 courageous women and men who set out together to cross Death Valley and defeat diabetes. No worse for wear, Tammy is pondering the possibility of a return trip next year! Read the rest of this entry »

“CU Later Diabetes”! The Concordia t-shirts (beautifully colored in CUW Lake Blue and Sunrise Gold) showed our team’s determination to defeat this disease. Our captain, Peter Ferry, recruited our largest ever contingent of Concordia zoo-walkers for the annual JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) fundraiser. The Concordia team raised over $2300 to support research aimed at finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. Peter’s younger brothers, Andrew and Stephen, both are afflicted with type 1 diabetes. Some of Andrew Ferry’s story is chronicled in “Faith in the Freshman: A Story of Hopes and Hopes.” Click the read link to see more pictures. Read the rest of this entry »
