Thank you so much for posting these videos. Way to go finish finishers! You've pressed in to find out how BIG GOD can be INSIDE of you. It will be a lesson for life when other adversity comes. You young people have inspired your parents to press in to a greater level. Way to go. Way to go Nathan and those that supported him. We couldn't find him on this video, but we saw him yest.
Have a good rest. Luv u

John
You did it Son. If there is one thing that has marked your life it is that you don't quit. Whether it is distance running, difficult school classes and projects or seeking a closer walk with God you have always pressed in until you finished. You can say like Paul ( when it comes to ESOAL ) that you " finished the race. You fought the fight.
I believe that you will apply the same endurance to the other parts of your life John. Marriage, career, friendships, ministry but most of all your walk with Jesus.
This is my son John in whom I am well pleased. Well done Son.
Very proud,
Dad

From of former intern of 99 GO FINISHERS!! You all pressed through, the lessons you learn to stay with you. God will bless your endurance, and there is new meaning to beating your body and making it your slave. As well as YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO GIVES YOU STRENGTH!!
