What a day!!!

Filed under: Church,Cody,THRIVE — Kindel @ 4:07 pm

Today, Cody and I got to Simpsonville at 7:30am. Why so early, you ask? Well, today was a community-wide yard sale event in Travis and Kristen’s neighborhood. While neighbors were setting up their yards with things to sell, we were setting up tables with doughnuts and coffee, and coolers with sodas and water. Throughout the morning, we gave away all 384 doughnuts, a few pots of coffee, a few dozens drinks and an iPod shuffle!

The best part: we were able to personally meet at least 108 families and tell them about THRIVE!!! Not only that, but Travis and Kris walked around the neighborhood and met a ton more people at their front doors!!!

Today was a very successful day! Those of us in the launch group also got to hang out and get to know each other better! It was nothing short of AMAZING!!!

Now here’s my chance to brag on Cody: Earlier this week, Travis mentioned that we needed some kind of information card to hand out with the doughnuts. Cody absolutely jumped on that and had something professionally printed within a couple of days! Yesterday, Travis told Cody that we needed the website up and running. Within 24 hours, Cody has made this! It’s still under construction but for less than a day’s work, it’s really good! I’m so proud of Cody!!!

Check out the website, give us some feedback, and pray that God will continue to bless us with ways to reach the community!



  1. I’m glad things are going great so far with the new church! I know Travis…he’s a cool guy! I didn’t know he got married!
    I’d love to come visit the church sometime!
