Yesterday was one for the books.
Lamont and Mike have got to be two of the most humble, amiable, kind, hardworking, and dedicated people I know. Maybe the stats and TV screens don’t always reveal that, but I have no doubt that more than just their skills, Alaska and Sta. Lucia also saw what we see in them.
I feel so blessed that we got to witness the journey that they’ve been on. What’s even more inspiring is that–even if things turned out differently–knowing these guys, they would still be loving and thanking God. In that light, watching the PBA draft yesterday was such a wonderful and mind-blowing experience for all of us!
Their Facebook status messages say it all:
Michael Burtscher: “GOD just blessed me beyond imagination!! “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 Thank you all for the support and prayers!”
Lamont Waters: “Can’t belive this isn’t a dream!! I am beyond words. Continue to be faithful and put Him first in everything you do. All glory and honor be to God!!”
They’re like family to us, and we couldn’t be happier for them. God is AWESOME! :)
