Coach Charlie Wedemeyer

Coach Charlie Wedemeyer was an Inspiration (click for SJ Mercury article)
~ they should change the title to IS and inspiration ~ 

Several times during Jacob's Journey I thought of this family and their journey. He was my high school football coach and was an incredible man with an incredible gift and testimony. I thought of his wife Lucy who had hurt her neck and lifting her husband in and out of bed as we helped Jacob in and out of bed. We did it for a few months - the Wedemeyers did it for almost 30 years. What an encouragement to know that God's hand was on them and that in the midst of suffering God's presence sustained them.

Coach is walking, singing, running, throwing, loving in the Presence of the object of his faith.

"I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation of everyone who believes... For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written, "The righteous will live faith."" Romans 1:16, 17
