Do Hard Things conference is an event where teens and parents gather to learn the biblical foundation and practical outworking of the Do Hard Things mentality—that doing what’s hard is a key to growth.
The main speakers of the Do Hard Things conference are twins Alex and Brett Harris, also authors of the book of the same title, and their dad, Gregg Harris. The Harrises were scheduled to come to the Philippines on June to speak at the conferences but due to an unexpected condition of Mrs. Sono Harris, the twins’ mother, they cannot commit to leaving her for a long period of time. Their mother was diagnosed with an advanced stage of colon cancer.
The outcome of the speakers’ withdrawal from their speaking engagement in the Philippines is that there would be no Do Hard Things conference on June. But the organizers of the conferences are not closing the doors to a possibility of a smaller event related to Do Hard Things. We are encouraging everyone to often check the Do Hard
Things in the Philippines Facebook page for updates.
Word about the Do Hard Things conference has already spread throughout the country, even in the provinces far north and south of Manila and Cebu. Of paramount importance now is to spread the word that the speakers are not coming on June and the reason behind it.
We recognize God’s faithfulness in the unexpected turn of events, both the canceled conferences and Mrs. Harris’ condition. We know that the efforts in the preparation for the past three months are His ways of teaching inexperienced teenagers to experience His goodness and favor among those who joyfully obey Him—even if it’s hard.
We are also very grateful for people, especially to parents, pastors and youth leaders, who have supported the Do Hard Things mentality from the very beginning. Please continue to pray with us for Mrs. Harris’ condition and for the organizers as we work on some challenges with the cancelled event.
