Philippians 4:4-9
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. and the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Challenger Baseball

 Hannah is very excited to be playing baseball this year.  She is playing on the challenger league for kids with differences that make playing on a typical team not possible.
She is fun to watch.  She still has to think about how to step when she throws the ball, and usually it does not go far.  Notice Caleb has no mitt because it usually ended up on the ground.  It is part of her motor planning issues.
 It is so fun to look out on the field and see more parents and coaches than kids at times!  And coaches and parents helping out kids on both teams.
 Yeah!  Who needs to pay attention to the game when you have such a great smile!  She liked playing first base, but had no idea what to do with the ball when she did get it :)  Didn't matter much because outs don't count anyways.
 Notice the amazing hitting stance.  But don't let her fool you.
 She hit it from a pitch all the way to the outfield!  Best hit seen all morning!
She got to first base and stood for a while then decided why not head to second for a double:)

We are very thankful for the opportunities she has to play on teams such as this, where she feels 'safe' socially and can be herself and have fun.

Final Results

Dear Supporting Friends and Family,

What an wonderful experience this has been.  The Pear Blossom 10 Mile Run was great, even though I had shin splints!  Thankfully, I was able to finish with help and encouragement my dad, Dustin Clark, and Pastor Dale Meador.

Together we raised $1,310 for water in South Sudan.  That is enough water for over 26 people for an entire generation!  Thank you for helping me to do this and for blessing all these people on my home continent.  

We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13), we do not have to be strong enough to do the task that has been laid before us alone.

Thank you for standing with me in this challenge,

Caleb Jordan
