In March of 2015, I first opened registration for private swimming instruction through Assured Aquatics. I never dreamed that my clients would become my family, my community would become so much larger, and that I would fall so in love with coming alongside each of my students as we adapted skills to their abilities and earned many hard-fought milestones. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have served you.
As we enter 2019 - the 5th year of Assured Aquatics' operation - I look forward to continuing the many partnerships that I have been blessed with over the years. And I also look forward to introducing each of you to some newer partnerships that will allow Assured Aquatics to expand its impact across the nation and around the globe. Through this simple business venture, God is making a way to bring the same hope and assurance that I teach in the water to those who are in need of food, water, clothing, shelter, education, rehabilitation, and encouragement that though their circumstances may be harsh, confidence and hope are available to them. The beginnings of this were apparent as the Assured Aquatics family partnered to bring a nutritious meal and a day of hope to 30 children in the slums of Nairobi this past Christmas; if this is the beginning, I am so excited about these partnerships moving forward.
I pray that you enter your new year with hope and confidence, firm and fearless, resting on the goodness of the God who created you for a purpose.
