Romans 5:3-5

"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems or trials, for we know they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disapointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love." Romans 5:3-5

Generosity is the habit of giving freely without expecting anything in return. It can involve offering time, assets or talents to aid someone in need. Often equated with charity as a virtue, generosity is widely accepted in society as a desirable trait.

We are pretty speechless. So about three weeks ago we decided that I needed to attend the Hypoparathyroidism Conference in Rockyville, Maryland.  It is the 5th annual Hypoparathyroidism conference.  Several of the American Doctors that we've been in contact with are speaking at the event.  Within a week of us deciding to go, several  amazing things happened. First, Perry and I were provided with flights!  We both get to go....amazing.  We are so thankful for this blessing.

Then last week, the staff at Anixter, where Perry works, has started fundraising to help cover the cost of our trip.  They've made posters and are doing 50/50 draws on Friday's and collecting bottles.  These are busy people and for them to take the time to do this is a sacrifice.  We are extremely humbled by their generosity.
Thank you.

The Conference is June 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
