WHAT is GiGi?

Crowd Sourced Wisdom: Good Idea/God Idea 
 


We hosted our 10th annual Great Wolf Lodge Planning meeting 2 weeks ago following 90 days of Good Idea/God Idea discernment with over 50 key staff & supporters. At the meeting we did something we've never done before: put the 6 alternatives facing us to a vote. 52 present at the meeting voted. 48 chose the option below.

10-year champion, Brian Elbert gave this impression: I came home and told Judy, “amazing volunteers voted to make it way harder AND the surprising part was that individuals said they would do it, not let the other guy do it." 

2018 GOD IDEA PLAN....
JUL 13-14, 2018: 75 members of The300 host the All-in-One Mini Run at Lakewood Summerfest (26,000 attendees)
AUG 8-11, 2018: The300 will host the 4US FESTIVAL. The world's ONLY All-in-One 5K on Friday Night and Saturday Morning + Festival + Guinness Squirt Gun Fight.  

WHAT IS AN ALL-IN-ONE FUN RUN?  Here's a clue...



A moment of Zen...Huh?
We'll fill in the details in the coming weeks. But know this: Even though it's harder - hosting the event will be easier.

THANK YOU

Deep thinking men & women of God counseled Kim and I to "drop the Rally and focus on OPERATION illumiNATION" (our 5-year plan to go from 10 to 100 machines per year). God spoke to us through them -- but it wasn't the answer they (or we) expected. 

Kim and I will be focusing on the national growth plan -- using our typical 1,500-2,500 annual volunteer hours that we normally use for The300 and Rally event. Thanks to our Life10 Leadership Staff, and those who answered the call to lead at the Great Wolf Lodge -- they will focus on The300 Mission Trip and renamed Rally event. Our mission will grow and thrive. We need you to help us grow this mission.

Why is this important?  Kim probably put it best. 

When asked by a revered counselor "What is your personal mission for The300 and 4US?"  Kim replied,
 

"To slay Planned Parenthood."


What's another name for those so inspired by the 4US mission to equip PRC's with ultrasounds that they'll serve with The300?
 

"Dragon Slayers."


As Kim, the kids, and I gather around the Thanksgiving table this Thursday -- I'll give thanks for those Dragon Slayers among The300 and serving at our PRCs.
 

Love,


DIEGO WENDT

PS I hope to highlight at least one "Dragon Slayer" per newsletter in the coming year.  Do you know a member of The300 that you want to recognize as a Dragon Slayer? Email me and let me know.
