Many of you will probably be aware from news reports that after a long battle against bone marrow cancer Maddie Riewoldt passed away this morning.
Thank you for your prayers and other support for Maddie and her family, and particularly for Sean Heldsinger in his role as pastor to the Riewoldt family in these last months.
Sean was with Maddie and the family when she passed away earlier today, and will continue to support them as they go through the process of sorting out funeral arrangements etc. Sean expressed this afternoon that he’s “so thankful” for all the support he’s received over these last few weeks especially.
As we reflect today on the intersection of life, faith, and sport it’s powerful to see how God’s Spirit ministers through people to individuals and communities. May you continue to see that in your own work and walk.
