Busy Times

Wow. One full week without blogging. Where does all the time go? Here at Hoops of Hope, in addition to working our "day jobs", we're busy coordinating upwards of 100 events that are planned on December 6th in possibly 16 different countries. It's a busy time, but a season that we love. Our volunteers and small staff are doing an incredible job coordinating these events. Not a day goes by that we don't thank God for them.

Last week, we were at Revolve in Spokane Washington. About 4,000 girls attended and we had over 380 sign up to do a Hoops of Hope event before December 6th. Incredible.  Right now, we're about 1/2 way to funding the medical clinic in Chilala. I'm hoping and praying we meet our goal :)

Tomorrow, Austin will be heading to Portland for another incredible weekend with the Revolve Tour.
