If you are reading this, you most likely know our mom, Nan Klampert. This is an interesting season for her and our dad, David, as she was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 liver disease. While this does in some ways define her future, it does not in the least define her legacy. This march, mom turns 70. On top of that, in Feb they celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary! We had heard from our dad that they had a bucket list dream of taking a cruise all around Europe and we wanted to help make that happen for them where they would not have to worry about the finances.
I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but unless you are preaching in a stadium while waving around a rag to wipe your sweat, you are not making a ton of money "preaching the gospel" and helping people. What is amazing is, even though they officially "retired", not much has changed. Any chance they get they try to help or bless everybody they are in contact with. Often it is at the detriment of blessing themselves.
We want to ask you a question:
Do you remember when you were on the receiving end of being blessed by our parents in some way?
Maybe it was in a teaching, a hug, a conference, a meal, a phone call, maybe you wouldn't be married without their impact, or maybe a rescue....
Prognosis aside, they are still marching forward because they believe in the truth that the most "human" or "christlike" thing they can do is love the person in front of them, regardless of race, creed, religion, sexual identity, or political association.
We know that will never change, but we would LOVE to give them another HUGE memory together where it's JUST ABOUT THEM.
Can you help us do that?
Can you help us spread the word?
Our mom is turning 70. Our mom still has faith. Help us flood her life with Joy.
And if you can't help financially, then message her. Not in a fb post or with the click of a like button, but really message her and let her know the answer to the question we posed above.
