Losers make us Winners!

I Corinthians 16:19 & 20 "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body."



We had a fitness center in our area put on a biggest loser contest, with 47 participants. These participants were trying to see who was the biggest loser and they lost a total of 899 pounds. Before they started this they were explained that the money they paid to enter and the money they had to give for not reaching goals, was going to go to the #1 winner (loser) to be given to their favorite charity. There was a tie, so the #1 winner and #2 winner had to share the money to give to the charity of their choice. Guess what, we the Miracles Can Happen Boys Ranch, were both of their choices. So because they were the biggest LOSERS we were the biggest WINNERS and recipients of $1,010.00 to help us run the race God has placed us in. Our God is an Awesome God and uses people in very creative ways to help us continue doing His work.
