Story of the Week


Firstly, I will say that I have known and befriended both John and Judy Hinwood since the year 2000. John has handed me a couple of Expect a Miracle Cards and to be very frank, I didn’t quite know what to do with them when they were given to me.

Being both slightly naive and very competitive at 10, I was trying to keep pace with my BIG bro, I watched as my brother dodged cars and collected signs and I was determined to keep up. I saw my brother bolt back across the road. I thought to myself… “he’s going to collect more signs” so I ran as fast as I could in an attempt to not let him get the better of me. And that was the last thing I can remember about that day. I remember opening my eyes and seeing a whole bunch of adults wearing white uniforms.
