Wingate University Football Field Day

A large group of Special Olympians and an even larger group of Wingate University football players met head to head on the Wingate track field to run some drills and show off some mad skills.  As part of the United Way Day of Caring the Wingate University football team hosted the Special Olympians and showed their "softer"side.  The football team challenged the Olympians in kicking, passing, and tackling.  I believe the Wingate University team kicker may have even lost his job after one of the Olympians showed him up smile!  It was a wonderful day full of smiles, laughter and encouragement!  A special thanks to the Wingate University football team for showing true character and sportsmanship in making our Special Olympians feel like a part of the team!  We appreciate you all!  Can't wait till next year!  Go Bulldogs!!

Happiness Retreat 2017- Galactic Starveyors

We were thrilled once again to attend the Happiness Retreat at Camp Caraway this year in Asheboro, NC.  We spent a jam packed, fun filled weekend drawing closer to God and to each other.  We arrived Friday, August 4th.  Our first night we were blessed to be part of an amazing group of talented individuals sharing their God given talents with all of us!  Saturday we were able to attend our small group sessions where we learned that the God who created everything there is - the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible - wants a personal relationship with us!  The afternoon was filled with puppets and creative movement.  Saturday evening we had a beautiful worship service and then we closed out the evening with our version of Baptist "dancing"- shhh!  Sunday we once again met in our small groups, had lunch, and prayed for safe travels home for everyone.  One of the highlights of the trip for me personally occurred Saturday morning while sitting outside during a break to call my kids; I looked to my right and saw a big black dog and right behind that black dog was a small buck.  I was outside by myself so I didn't know what would happen next.  The dog and the buck walked right up to me and licked my hands!  I was so excited to see something so magnificent up close and to be able to touch it!  God knew I needed that!  I also knew no one would believe me so I got out my phone and started taking pictures- now I have proof!  

Our whole group is already planning for Happiness Retreat 2018.  They started before we ever made our way out of the parking lot!  Thank you to the Baptist State Convention for hosting this each year and for the wonderful volunteers who give so much of their time, energy and talent to making our loved ones feel so special!

Stegall Home residents visit the Mexico-Cardenas Museum

The men visited the Mexico-Cardenas Museum on Saturday, July 22, in Waxhaw, NC.  The museum was full of folk art, photos, artifacts, and clothing.  Along the way they learned about Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico's president from 1934-1940.  There is also a 1938 Chevrolet parked right in front of the museum that was given by the president of Mexico.

Dylan & Ava visit Stegall Home

We were so blessed to have Dylan and Ava come and share the gospel through music with our men on Friday, July 14th.  Dylan plays the guitar beautifully while Ava lifts her amazing voice to the heavens!  We truly enjoyed our time with them.  They even let us join in on the last song "This is Amazing Grace"!  We will all be looking for them to audition for America's Got Talent here in the near future.  God has given them both amazing gifts and it blesses our hearts to see them use those gifts for HIM!!!

Alphabet Museum

The men from Stegall Home toured the Alphabet Museum this Saturday, July 8th, in Waxhaw, NC.  The men had a tour guide that led them through the museum and explained the origins of the alphabets that exist in over 7,000 different languages.  The men were able to write their names using heiroglyphics.  They also wrote their names in 4 other languages to include Arabic, Assyrian, Hebrew, and Punjabi.  They listened to an audio recording of an African language that used clicking sounds as their communication.  The Alphabet Museum was an excellent way to spend our Saturday and we learned a lot in the process.
