This is where we post updates on our monthly activities with Mitchell's Journey.
This is a short video we played at our Movie event today. It summarizes some highlights of the year and points to some things that are up-and-coming. We are so grateful for an opportunity to serve families in a variety of ways and we look forward to the years ahead.
Life is hard - but it is made easier when we try to lift each other's burdens.
Here are some photos from our event today. It was so great to meet so many new DMD families. This year we had 21 DMD boys attend!
We recieved 6 large parcels today for the Gift of Giving 2016 Charity Drive. We are so humbled by the good hearts of so many people who want to bless the lives of other children, in memory of Mitch.
Mitchell's Journey wants to thank Megan Duckworth for her generous donation to this year's Gift of Giving charity drive. She came to our place with two large tupperware bins filled with toys.
Natalie and I had an opportunity to visit with the Buehner Family today and we were humbled by their incredible generosity. Their son, Kaden, has DMD and they are a family deserving of service, yet they choose time-and-again to set aside their needs to serve others. We were so inspired by their kindness.
They then posted this quote with the image on social Media.
"The happiest people in life are givers, not getters." The last few months we have made blankets and bought many toys. The smiles on the kids face as they would tell cashiers the toys are for kids at Primary's was priceless. I love teaching my kids about giving. We are lucky that Kaden has amazing healthcare here in Utah. Some kids have long hospital stays and hopefully we will bring them some cheer. We donated 100 toys, 50 blankets and 50 books to Mitchell's gift of giving. @mitchells_journey You can still donate too! Check out www.mitchellsjourney.org for info.
Today we returned to Riverton High School to report on our activities in 2016. We are forever grateful for this remakable school and student body who helped Mitchell's Journey take its message and program to the next level.
Here is a short video we made summarzing some of our efforts and thanking Riverton high Students.
