Again! God opened awesome doors for SFC to be a part of the Snowsports Industry of America (SIA) snow show in Denver, CO. We couldn’t be more stoked to be there again. We were blessed with a free space to set up a booth and bring in some volunteers to help serve. SFC Leaders from all over joined us for a week of service and fellowship.
The event is a HUGE deal; it is only open to individuals that work in the ski/snowboard industry, and over 80% of retail buyers and a similar representation of manufacturers can be found in one room over the course of the week. So you might ask, WHY would SFC be there? Though we aren’t buying or selling anything we are part of the ski and snowboard culture. Our mission for the weekend was simply to serve the industry and create relationships.
We believe that our time at SIA this year was a success! We teamed up with some guys in the mornings of the show to spend some time in fellowship and prayer. They told us that 2016 was the 30th year they’ve been meeting! So amazing to see that God has been working in this industry for 30 years and He’s not planning on stopping! SFC was also able to hand out free coffee and donuts every morning and just like last year these were well received by everyone. It’s so cool to see how a donut can be such a great conversation starter. We were also able to help 10+ different brands/manufacturers set up or tear down their booths. Our fearless volunteers were more than stoked to get after it and carry a lot of heavy stuff.
Please continue to pray for our volunteers and any relationships that were created. Pray that as the show attendees return to their homes for a little bit of rest they can reflect on that donut or the help they received.
