Anthony wins!

This is a follow up to this post.  Anthony is a fourth grader, who comes from a poor family.  His school just finished a fundraiser.  He is not someone you would expect to sell much.  After school he walked to the businesses in downtown Enterprise, and asked them to buy a discount card.  Anthony did end up selling the most Wildcat cards.  He sold 104 raising $1040 for his elementary school!  He outsold the second place student by 40 cards.  I got a chance to tell Anthony how proud I was of him.  

Anthony is fulfilling his potential.  Are you?

    Could it be that a certain children’s pastor named Justin Swasey helped instill confidence into him when Anthony was a child? By showing him God’s love and teaching him about Jesus, I know that touched his heart. He was such a shy little boy living in a bad situation.

    Thanks for updating us about Anthony.
