We are so very fortunate and appreciate the many blessings and folks who have honors us with their friendship and support. Both Kathy and I appreciate each person more than we can express.
To pass this appreciation forward, we have to recognize and honor the efforts of the Tim Tebow Foundation. He continues to bring joy and happiness to many who have many struggles every day. Here is a letter Tim recently penned on his foundation website:
My early years were spent in the Philippines where my parents served as missionaries. My experiences there and the training from my parents who instilled in me the importance of God’s word, the salvation that we have in His Son Jesus, and the responsibility that we have to give back to others, gave me a desire to make a difference in people’s lives.
At the age of 15, I visited a remote village that had never seen visitors. There I met a boy named Sherwin who would impact my life more than anyone I have ever met. Sherwin was born with his feet on backwards and was viewed as “cursed” in his village. When the people saw me hold Sherwin, they realized that the good news of Jesus Christ applies to everyone. It was then that my passion grew to help people. That’s why in 2010, I was so excited to create the Tim Tebow Foundation with a mission to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.
The Christian faith is about loving Jesus and loving people, and that is what we are trying to do with this foundation and all of our outreaches. Whether it is spending a weekend encouraging a child with a life threatening illness through a W15H, helping a family adopt an international child with special needs, crowning kings and queens of the prom, or by showing God’s love through our four other outreaches, our goal is to let people know that God loves them and that they are worthy.
We would not be able to accomplish our mission without God’s blessings and the support of our generous donors and partners. I hope that you will explore our site to see what we have been able to do. We hope that you will consider joining our team through prayer and financial support to help change lives. Together we WILL make a difference!
