 COT Everyone will go through tough times at some point, and we also will know someone that will go through a difficult situation.  As HIM, we need to be able to persevere when times are tough, for our families, our employees, etc.  Lean on your faith in these moments.  Recognize when someone is hurting, and realize that even the smallest gesture, can make a big impact on someone to provide support, or to lift their spirits. James 1:12 – Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.   Vespa lead us out in Prayer.   Thank you for the amazing support this morning.  It was an honor to lead the PAX at Iditarod!   -Vespa
