20 years of Hope | from Chris Woodruff, EXECUTIVE Director
“20 Years ago this month, August of 2000, the very first Lighthouse Family Retreat took place on Tybee Island with 6 families living through childhood cancer. The impact of that week has carried on for 20 years now into our 20th summer of retreats and God continues to amaze with all the incredible stories of life change and Kingdom impact.
In the 20 years since that first week on the shores of the Atlantic, we have done over 200 Retreats and served over 2,000 families living through childhood cancer! Only God could have planned such an incredible journey. Immeasurably more than we could have ever asked or imagined.
I want to thank you for everything you have done to make Lighthouse what it is today: for your prayers; for your time serving and sweating with us at the beach; for sharing with your friends, churches and companies about the mission and vision of Lighthouse. Thank you for giving so generously to keep Lighthouse going strong. We could do none of this without you.
Here is to the next 20 years, that we continue to grow to serve EVERY family that applies and needs a week away from the chaos of childhood cancer.
All for HIS glory!”
