The Bowling Green Community, Hope House and most importantly the Wilson family experienced a great loss this past weekend. It has been a very difficult week for us, the Wilson family, and the countless others he has touched as we mourn his passing.
Scott had been a volunteer with us for over five years and never stopped advocating for us. Scott always wanted to see how he could use the gifts and talents God had given him to help others and make Jesus more famous in the lives he encountered. Though he had many roles with us as a volunteer, one of the ways he did this was by creating, organizing and planning our Annual Dinner Fundraiser called “Cooking for Hope”.
Five years later we are preparing for our Fifth Annual Cooking for Hope. Over the last four years this event has raised over $50,000, influenced countless relationships that have helped us grow, and, most importantly, impacted many broken and hurting lives eternally with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are still reaping the blessings from Scott’s obedience, to God be the Glory.
Scott was a man who wanted to give of his life, not for his sake, but because of Christ’s work in his life. By God’s grace, Scott understood why he had been given specific gifts by God. Simply put, Scott knew he was created by God to bring Him glory and use those gifts to help accomplish God’s work in the world. His efforts to use his gifts and talents for God’s glory through Hope House will be bearing fruit for years to come.
We mourn the loss of a great friend, husband, and father. May we find strength, in that, he walked confidently on this Earth knowing he was not his own, he had been bought with a price and he would one day stand in Glory joining in the choir of angels worshiping the Savior he dearly loved more than this world!
May you join us in prayer as we lift up his wife, Jennifer, his daughter Katie, Scott’s mother, Jean and the rest of the family as they mourn the passing of a great husband, father, son and friend.
