Motocross 4 Christ Families Both Give and Receive
MX families are great and our camps couldn't be done without all of the wonderful families that come along side of the ministry.
That being said, MX kids often don't just race dirt bikes. We have kids and siblings that excel at running, soccer, football, swimming and other sports.
Aidan Dickins (far left in pic), one of our fastest mini riders at camp and top ten finisher at Loretta Lynn's, had a great football season as well. The Renegades from Skippers, Virginia won their league championships again this year!
Aidan and his dad Matt have been a blessing to MX4C. Matt is a seasoned excavator / track builder and has been such a asset to our track crew, volunteering countless hours each year.
Another family that we'd like to spotlight is the Weidners. Kevin (dad) and Preston (son) have been coming to camp for years. Preston started as a rider and now as a young adult, he serves as a volunteer, often serving from set-up to tear-down. Kevin is our go to guy for all kinds of tasks, from keeping hydration stations filled up to being one of our onsite EMTs.
This year a few more Weidners where at camp, younger sons Berkley and Steele participated as riders, Nellisa (mom) and Addie (daughter) served as volunteers.
Addie started as a freshman on her high school soccer team at Notre Dame High School in Easton, Pa. The Crusaders went to district championships and we look forward to following Addie and her team in future seasons!
One more family, there are so many of you! The Millers have been constants at camp. Ben Sr. (Dad) serves tirelessly from set-up to tear-dow, Ben Jr. and Jonathan (sons) serve on and off of the track and Emily (daughter) rides, helps out in the kitchen and crafts. Emily is a great rider but is a superstar soccer player too! She plays for multiple travel teams and is often the top scorer.
God gives us all a platform to give Him glory. Sometimes it may be on the podium, sports field or at your workplace. We all need to look for those opportunities to let His light shine through us.
Matthew 5:16 16
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
We so appreciate all of our volunteers and families. It is fun to see kids grow up but still stay involved. I know we all get pulled in different directions and we have to prioritize different activities. Thank you for prioritizing MX4C!
