THIRST Inaugural Golf Tournament 2012

September 4, 2012

The Inaugural THIRST Living Waters Fund Golf Tournament was held on Monday August 6, 2012 at Greeley Country Club.  After months of preparation and prayer, the day finally arrived.  We were blessed with 92 golfers and 44 volunteers.  It was an incredible day.  The weather was perfect, the golf experience excellent and the speakers shared from their heart how suicide touched their lives.  Linda & Doug Carey shared about the loss of their son Justin 5 years ago and how devastating it is to this day.  Justin died at age 30; he was a handsome young man, loved life, with many friends, why?  Krismichelle Nohavec from Suicide Education and Support Services shared facts surrounding suicide and the signs we should watch for.  Finally, Brittany shared her story, deeply touching the hearts of the audience.  Brittany’s story is also a blog here on the website.  Mike Michael, auctioneer extraordinaire, then auctioned off a number of fun items with great success.  Thank you to our golf committee, our generous sponsors, our golfers, our amazing volunteers, and Greeley Country Club and their employees who made the day a huge success.  We were blessed financially and will be able to assist organizations that are making a difference in the prevention of suicide and the support of grieving families.  Please plan on joining us on August 5, 2013 for the 2nd Annual THIRST Living Waters Golf Tournament!

HeavenFest 2012 Wow!



THIRST Living Waters Fund was a sponsor of HeavenFest, a Christian music festival in Loveland, CO held on July 29, 2012.  Barb and I had been to the event the year before and enjoyed the experience, even though we were certainly some of the older folks there.  This year, at the insistence of Sara & Bess, THIRST became a sponsor.  In 2011 over 33,000 people attended the event, mostly youth from the age 14 to 30.  We knew this was a perfect venue for THIRST.  The morning of the event we didn’t know how many people would visit our booth; so with butterflies in our stomach, yes we were anxious, we arrived at 7:30 AM.  Much to our pleasant surprise, people started coming almost immediately.  When people saw our THIRST banner they would ask what we were about.  Answering, “Trust Him In Relief of Suicidal Thoughts”, opened the door to unbelievable conversations and confessions.  We prayed with numerous hurting people and two young people accepted the Lord, hallelujah!  283 people signed up to win the iTouch and at least double that stopped to talk.  As we left at 10:00 PM, we were exhausted, but fulfilled.  It was the most incredible day; I count it as the most inspirational and humbling day in my life.  We truly believe we were used by the Lord to make a difference in people’s lives that day.  To our new HeavenFest friends, we hope to see you next year at Sports Authority Field in Denver!
