Be well! Fish On!

Be Well! Fish On!
September 14, 2010

Terence is on the river today- he left this morning to partake in a flyfishing retreat  for men battling all forms of cancer, called "Reel Recovery".

He has been a part of this group since he was diagnosed last year.  Anyone who knows Terence, knows that he loves the outdoors; loves fishing, hunting and sharing the Lord.

The retreat covers fly fishing basics; 'couragous conversations' (fosters sharing of life stories for men) and post retreat communication, their hopes are that the men will form new and lasting friendships and gain renewed hope as they confront their battle with cancer.

For Terence, being out doors is healing to his soul, so he tries to continue to fish (since hunting would be a challenge right now), although he does have an invitation for a Wyoming hunt next October (with his long time friend Jim Sessions). 

That is one of his next big goals: get healthy enough to make the hunt next year! Thanks to everyone who is helping us make it from one day to the next! Here's to Terence's next hunt, October 2011!
