Blessings and Opportunities

I have been remiss! So much has happened in the last month so grab a snack, settle in and read about it all from Jeremiah himself!

Don't forget about Jeremiah for the Gold T-Shirt Day next Sunday, July 27th in honor of Jeremiah's 29th birthday! If you don't have yours yet you can get it here

The Lord has given me many blessings and opportunities these past few weeks to bring Him Glory. On July 8th I had a chance to speak to the Columbus Exchange Club at the Columbus Country Club in Columbus, Georgia. There, I was able to tell my story, as well as tell the group what I believe the Lord is doing in and through my life. 

July 9th I was on the Dee Armstrong show where I was interviewed on live TV by Dee herself to share my story. After we finished the segment, all the staff gathered and told me how I have such an inspirational story and outlook on life. I was truly humbled and was then free to tell them that none of this would be possible if it was not for Jesus Christ and what He is doing in my life. (Link to the videos of the interview will be at the end of this post. The volume cuts out of the first video in the middle. You can finish watching the interview with the second.)

On July 11th Ashley, Gabe, and I drove to Wetumpka, Alabama to get a lift installed on my truck to make it easier to get my wheel chair down. We were also able to get my electric wheelchair which Gabe was impressed with. He certainly approves of the chair. We will have to go back soon to get my seat, the proper arm, as well as hand controls installed. 

So for now it's back to training. We will be leaving in August to head to Colorado for our last training event at the Air Force Academy before we leave for London! To all, thank you for your continued support and encouragement. 

I hope this update finds you all doing well... The life and motto of the Means Family is not how hard you can hit, but how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward...With God on our side anything is possible.
