13 dollars for my 13 week training for 13 miles. So easy to give!
I have made the committment to run 13 miles, not for me, but for this amazing ministry. I have been so inspired by what Miles for Hope, FUMC and ZOE ministries have done for orphans in Africa. What impresses me the most is the sustainability of this mission which gives orphans a skill set to live independently. The money provided goes to a lifetime of change and that is amazing to me!
It is heartbreaking when you hear a child talk about stealing for food, but it is so uplifting when you hear the stories from some of the orphans about how this ministry has given them a new life. Most importantly, the gratitude they express is beyond words. This is something that I want to be a part of. Running 13 miles is such a smile sacrifice.
