A Double Dose of Gaither Joy
Back in 2014, Inspiration had the privilege of helping fulfill the request of a young Make-a-Wish recipient named Jared. More than anything, Jared wished to go on a Gaither Homecoming Cruise and meet Bill Gaither, whom Jared had been listening to since before he was born! In a blog post about the trip, you can catch the highlights from this memorable Caribbean concert cruise. For Jared, his parents and his sister Jadyn, it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
…Or was it? During the cruise, Inspiration’s president, Steve Dick, spent time with Jared and happened to make him a promise: If the Gaithers ever cruised to the Caribbean again, Steve would make sure Jared and his family were passengers on that trip too. Well, guess what? Jared and his family are packing their bags to join the Gaither Vocal Band on their 2016 Caribbean cruise!
You can experience the moment when Jared and Jadyn found out the good news on Christmas morning. It was all captured on video by Jared’s father. (Simply click the image to play.) You’ll hear our president, Steve, on video in the background, making the surprise announcement. The expressions on the kids’ faces are priceless. Take a moment to catch up with Jared and his family and share the happy news along with them.
Gaither Homecoming events truly are a family affair. We can’t wait to spend time with this precious family again. And how about you? You should come join the fun on our next Gaither cruise!
