Though rain loomed in the forecast, the people came and the rain held off with just a little morning drizzle which didn’t dampen things one bit.  The day was filled with fellowship, good food, bouncy castles, games, and some testimonies.  Jody and Juddy Peavy came up from Florida and grilled up some amazing chicken and ribs, starting the grilling process at midnight!  Arvi Raid and his team looked after the games which included some good adult competition with a few kids in the mix.  The Caber Toss was a hit as was the Tug of War.  There was face painting for the kids, Holly Roy did an amazing job.  There were butterfly, tiger, cat, and super hero faces all around.  Emily Hopper the wife of one of the men in the program was really blessed by the day.  “The Homecoming Event was really special…not because of the bouncy castles, delicious food, or live worship music, although those things were amazing, but because a community of people came together to celebrate a program that facilitates the changes that God can make in the lives of men and their families.  It was encouraging to see the children play and families interact, knowing that we share a common struggle and a unified hope!  My boys had a blast!  I’m thankful for the thought and time that went into this event.”
