Tournament Champions

Of the 363 people who participated in the 2016 Quakerdale Winter Classic ProAm, 286 qualified to compete for Tournament Champion and started out with an even-Par 72 golf score. Of those who qualified, 39 were able to raise $50 or more to provide themselves the opportunity to reduce strokes on holes of their choice, and thus improve their golf score. Here’s how the top 39 ‘golfers’ finished:

24 players raised the minimum of $50 and were able to lower their score to a 1-under 71 and a tie for 16th place.

Six players raised at least $100 and were able to lower their score to a 2-under 70, tying for 10th place.

Three players raised $150 or more, lowered their score to a 3-under 69, and finished in 7th place.

Two players, Doug H (323) and RTalbot (325), both raised $200, lowered their score to a 4-under 68, and tied for 5th place.

Jim B (322) raised $250, lowered his score to a 5-under 67, and finished in 4th place.

This Year’s Trophy Winners are:

Third Place, and Second Runner-Up:
Dan Whitehead, Missionary Aviation Fellowship Pilot, Shell, Ecuador

We hope to see our Tournament Champions at the Award Desert so we can present them their trophies in person. I’m not sure how that will work for Dan Whitehead. He might have to make arrangements to have someone accept on his behalf. Even though he is a pilot, the 3,165 mile one-way flight might be a little too much!

Beginning a new year and reflecting on the past!

Share This:

Today I received a letter from a former employee of Quakerdale.   In the context of the letter he mentioned the value of Quakerdale to the kids that he served in his tenure.  I can attest that when people know you are from Quakerdale they come and they tell you how their life was impacted by it.  Maybe personally or a family member or friend who made important changes in their life.   They received the things they needed to “become.”

I’ve had people on the street, at conferences, in campgrounds and through social media share their stories of growth.  It is inspiring!

 

How great it is to be a part of a place that helps people “become.”

As 2017 is about to begin  Quakerdale is seeing sweeping changes.  Are they changes we want?  Usually not, because we like good things to stay just like they are!

The nature of things is to change.  We must stretch beyond the comfort of where we are today in order to meet the calling of God for us tomorrow.

It is a bittersweet activity!

Today I reflect on the people we have interacted with for decades and I celebrate them!

  • I revel in their “good”ness for children!  I think of the miracles we have witnessed in lives changed.
  • I ponder how many generations of children and children’s children have been impacted by the changed lives through Quakerdale.
  • I celebrate the super individuals who have shared their lives by working at Quakerdale with our kids.
  • I consider how our workers made our world better.  How they made me better!

Let us celebrate what was and move forward into what will be in 2107 and never forget to share the good news of how Quakerdale has made a difference!  Even better let’s look forward with anticipation how God will  work through us in the years and decades to come!

Have a Merry Christmas and a great 2017 and I hope you will keep Quakerdale in your prayers!  God is doing a great work here!

In Christ,

Robert C. Talbot

Thoughts from the course: Hole #18

Share This:

As I approach Hole #18, I realize that there is no way of winning the #qwc2016proam without teamwork.  If I was responsible for winning the golf tournament all by myself, I would probably have never even tried.  I hear from different friends of Hope4Healing that they often feel the same way when a friend, family member, or person in the community is hit with a difficult situation in their life and they don’t know how to help.  You can always help by referring them to Hope4Healing!  Just hand them one of the contact cards and you have possibly made the biggest impact in helping them overcome their struggles.

Thoughts from the course: Hole #17

Share This:

As I figure out my score on Hole# 17 on the Quakerdale Winter Classic score page, I thought about how most doctors and hospitals are now required to have electronic medical records so that a patient’s medical history is available to all of their caregivers.  This helps to make sure that continuity of care and a complete care approach is given to each patient.  Hope4Healing is like a scorecard or electronic medical records, because we work with the person in need to build a unique team that provides a whole person approach toward recovery, healing, and growth.  This team cares for the physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental health of not only the individual, but all team members.  Would you help us out by joining the team, following our newsletter, or donating to keep this level of care avaiable to all Iowans?

Thoughts from the Course: Hole #16

Share This:

While enjoying my time on Hole# 16, I did a quick google search to see how many golf courses their are in Iowa.  There are 345 golf courses in Iowa.  Has anyone played them all?  It reminded me that there are over 65,000 resources that Hope4Healing currently has access to, to help people all over the state of Iowa.  Some of these resources are just for your community, some for your county, and some cover the whole state.  What is even more impressive is that we are adding new ones every month.  Would you help us out by subscribing, joining, or donating below?

Thoughts from the course: Hole #15

Share This:

I’m so thankful to know that as I play hole #15, Beaver Hills has a great Pro to help me learn how to improve my golf game.  It can be very frustrating to be struggling and not have anyone to help me figure out how to bring about change.  The Hope4Healing research team serves as the Pro for living life at its fullest.  We do the work of finding resources and take the burden off of the person in need, the church, and the person of care.  The person in need gets to focus on recovery, the church gets to focus on ministry, and the person of care gets to focus on encouragement.  Making a donation helps to keep this type of service available to you and your community, see below:

Thoughts from the course: Hole #14

Share This:

I’m playing hole #14, and realized that just like the PGA tournament has a prequalifying event to see who will play; we at Hope4Healing help people in need determine which resource partners are the best fit for the help they need.  We don’t want to waste the time of people in need by sending them to the wrong place for help or sending them to a place that has a waiting list.  We don’t want to waste the time of the Resource partner by sending people to them when they don’t have the services to help or the person in need has to come back because they didn’t have all the paperwork they needed.  Check out how Hope4Healing can save you time or make a donation below:

Thoughts from the course: Hole #13

Share This:

I’m waiting my turn at hole # 13 and started thinking about how Hope4Healing allows each individual and/or organization to focus on their role in bringing about effective change.  Churches provide support and care, individuals walk with the person, organizations and businesses provide practical solutions; these relationships provide for a completely holistic approach toward healing, change, and growth.

Thoughts from the course: Hole # 10

Share This:

This morning while I was on the tee box at Hole #10, on behalf of Hope4Healing, I was thinking about how sometimes churches have members who are going through a difficult time, and they don’t know how to help the member with practical solutions.  This is a perfect reason to contact Hope4Healing!  We will help them find the resources they need to get through their difficult situation while the church ministers to them through encouragement, prayer, and caring.  Check out the links below to find out more or to see how you can participate.
