I am running the Dallas Marathon on December 9th in support of ZOE Ministries in Rwanda
Completing a marathon has never been a bucket item for me. This race is more of a road marker on a journey to an unknown destination. I feel Blessed to have the opportunity to compete athletically so when David was putting together his Miles for Hope 2012 campaign I jumped on-board without hesitation. I have never attempted a marathon but I suspect it will take several weeks of hard training, I will experience a great deal of physical pain, and it will take mental and spiritual toughness to endure the race. I believe these are all things God wants me to experience and conquer in order to prepare me to serve Him more fully.
In Rwanda my Church’s Mission, called ZOE Ministries, is preparing orphans for God’s work. These children have endured severe pain, misery and suffering beyond anything conceivable. Through training, education, sustenance, and spiritual guidance they are learning not only how to help themselves, but how to support each other in such an amazing fashion that it can only be described as Miraculous.
God’s Work in my life, yours and in the lives of our orphans in Rwanda is interconnected in more ways than we understand. It feels good to let go and let God lead me down a road of unknown length to a destination I can’t imagine. The next 26.2 miles of my road are dedicated to ZOE Ministries so that another 1037 children can have HOPE!
