Bruce gives us much inspiration as well as his contribution to our effort. Thank you Bruce!
Excerpt from an email Brooke sent to Bruce on March 3, 2009 -
Hi Bruce! I have been kept up to date from Pastor Joe, Pastor John, and others on your progress. Sounds like you are taking part in a waiting game right now which I can't even imagine how difficult that must be. You have been in Brad and my prayers. I also wanted to let you know that you are kicking everyone's butt on by participating in the Walk to Tanzania. Thanks for taking part, it means a lot!
Excerpt from Bruce's reply to Brooke -
I have already walked/rode over 50 miles this week, so I will reach my goal of 300 miles with a few miles to spare. We have already turned in $325 and when the rest of the money comes in, the total will be $1,100.
In times like this, it is best not to pray for patience - God may think you need more practice! I go in for a bone marrow biopsy on Friday and then will have to wait two more weeks for the results - ug. The bike/walk to Tanzania has been good motivation for me to get out of the chair and start getting back into shape. I am just a few miles away from my 300 mile goal and better yet, all the pledges will add up to around $1,000. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers. Bruce
