Guidice provides fine faith example

For those of us who went to school at Mountlake Terrace High in the late 1980s with The Herald’s Sept. 30 “Super Kid” Blake Guidice’s father, Walter, you couldn’t help but see the article on him without thinking to yourself, “He looks just like his father!”

Regarding Blake’s trip overseas to Europe and Israel, I was reminded of the famous quote by the late Christian missionary Jim Elliot: “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” And as far as Blake’s admitted dependence on God, it pleased me to realize that he has already figured out one of the most key secrets in life.
