Sadly this trip will take a sudden turn. Throughout the last few months of training and speaking with people regarding this triathlon several issues have come up. My goal of getting people to focus on the good we will be doing for the Water Street Mission and the Wounded Warrior Project never materialized. Instead there has been an idea permeated that this triathlon is all about “Sean” and that is the last thing I wanted. That coupled with two sicknesses that hampered my training and a recent back injury that forced me out of the gym for an extended period has pushed me to prayerfully cancel my plans to do this triathlon in September.
I want to thank you all for your prayers and for those of you that donated. For those that did donate I want you to know that you have the option of getting a refund or having your money donated between the two charities. If I do not hear back within the next two weeks I will split the money evenly between the two charities.
I am sad to have this be the outcome but am thankful to God and look forward to the future. As our Scripture header says:
Acts 20:24 “However I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me- the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s Grace”
My prayer is that this website has been a small comfort and maybe an encouragement to you to step out in faith and try something great. Roadblocks are a normal part of life and should be used to strengthen our resolve, not crush it. God Bless!
