“I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.” Psalm 77:11-14
Each year on our anniversary, it’s fun to look back and see what God has done and where He has brought the ministry. And with every passing year, this tradition has become more exciting and astounding.
Sometimes people will ask how Sixty Feet was started. Was there a grand vision or some big idea? To be honest, we pretty much planned to raise money to dig a well for the children at M1. That’s it. Beyond that there wasn’t much of a vision. And how were we going to raise the funds to go dig a well at a prison in Uganda? I don’t know, maybe we could sell a few cupcakes and some lemonade.
It would be great if we could say we had it all mapped out and knew exactly what we were doing, but all we really had was a mustard seed of faith – God had the vision and a grand plan that continues to unfold. And the funny thing is we still haven’t built a well yet – but it’s coming one day!
We all have turning points in our lives that are true milestones. In the spring of 2010, we experienced a turning point that felt like an earthquake shaking the foundations. Since then, God has taken hold of our hearts in ways we never knew possible.
These past three years have been the greatest of our lives. They have drawn us closer to God in unfathomable ways and brought people into our lives we never would have met and whom we deeply love. We are crazy thankful for what God has done and look forward with eager expectation for what He will do in the coming years.
But on anniversaries we remember. So we thought on this 3rd anniversary that we would share with you some of the special moments and people that have made this journey so incredible. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
