Those are the words that flew out of my mouth when Lori Hatcher, the editor of Reach Out, Columbia magazine, asked me if I wanted to write an article about Samkon Gado.
Samkon not only graduated from my two oldest children’s alma mater, Ben Lippen High School, but he also played one of my favorite sports at the highest level (and made the NFL record books in the process). He then went on to study medicine, just like my father.
Samkon did all of this because He trusted in God to do the impossible through him. He never let the facts interfere with the possibilities.
A story of such powerful faith needed to be told, and I can’t thank Reach Out, Columbia magazine enough for letting me be the one to tell it.
