99 Balloons

Eliot Mooney was given ninety-nine days on earth. His parents, Matt and Ginny, had a birthday party on each one.

At the celebration service for their son’s life, Matt said, “Not a pulpit. Not a slick presentation. Not a best-selling book. But a six-pound boy with Trisomy 18. God found great pleasure in taking a lowly thing in the eyes of the world and showing truth.” One of Matt and Ginny’s favorite verses is 2 Peter 3:8: “With the Lord a day is like a thousand years.”

Eliot’s story gained further attention when the 99 balloons video was shown on Oprah this week. The response was so powerful that Oprah invited Matt and Ginny to be interviewed on the show October 31st at 4pm.

Matt is a community pastor at my church and this family has a special place in my heart. Let’s support them as they share the hope-filled, inspiring story of how God can redeem the greatest heartaches of our lives and use them for His purposes.
