A year or so ago, my friend Jeremy Williams shared his testimony with our church. Jeremy is a husband, father of two and the head coach of the Greenville Patriots football team. Jeremy’s young son is paralyzed from the waist down and Jeremy has been suffering from ALS for two years now. Through all of this, Jeremy has remained faithful to Christ and has served as an example to many of how to remain Christ-centered while suffering.
Last year, Michael Carvell at the Atlanta Journal took Williams’ story to the public as he documented the Patriots journey deep into the playoffs.
This week, the folks at ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition decided to give the Williams family a new home. They began demolition and reconstruction this week and the show is expected to air in a month or two.
Pray that the gospel would continue to spread as outlets like Extreme Makeover tell Jeremy’s story. Pray for Jeremy and his son to be healed. Pray for the folks swinging hammers this week in Pine Mountain that do not already know Jesus to repent and come to faith in Christ as they do this great work for Jeremy.
