Eli travels with us to our Fresh Grounded Faith conferences, and is such a HOOT! We love him. He is a representative from Compassion International, one of my all-time favorite causes and one we like to talk about at FGF.
I surprised him on stage with an opportunity … okay, a dare.
I asked him, in front of all the women so he couldn’t say no, if the ladies sponsored 50 kids, would he wear one of our Gutsy Girl tee shirts on stage?
The women roared with approval. He reluctantly agreed.
Well, since that went so well, I decided to step up the wager. I asked him, if the women sponsor 60 women, would he stand on stage in his new shirt and sing for us?
The women roared even louder. I’m afraid the poor guy had no choice but to agree!
Well, 117 sponsered kids later, Eli took the stage flanked in his Gutsy Girl tee-shirt and lifted a song … a song more creative than I could have imagined.

Wanna hear it? He is a great sport; a good man who will really will do anything for those children!
Way to go Eli!
What should be my next dare for Eli? I think we should do something like this at every conference!
