I am running a half marathon in December to raise money for ZOE Ministry. Through ZOE, FUMC Mansfield is able to support orphans in Africa.

First Methodist Mansfield has helped 1037 children through our partnership with ZOE Ministry. Please help us reach another 1000! We cannot do it without your support.

Two goals of mine:

1. Visit Africa one day

2. Run a marathon

Although I will not be able to do either of those any time soon, I am able to help the orphans in Africa through ZOE Ministry. I have always wanted to visit Africa and help the people there in some way. I do not feel like this is the right time in my life to do this with two small children.

I have always wanted to run a marathon. I am just getting back into running after having my son. I decided to join the Miles for Hope team to get a little closer to my goals. I will run the Dallas Half Marathon on December 9. I am currently training and building myself up to completing the 13.1 mile run. I know I can do this because I am supporting a great cause and the orphans of Africa will benefit from it greatly! You can provide hope to children that have suffered enough. ZOE Ministry empowers orphans with the tools they need to become self sufficient citizens.

ZOE Ministry helps the orphans break the cycle of poverty within two to three years. They provide the orphans with the resources and training they need to be successful.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord; plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you hope and a future.” —Jeremiah 29:11

Will you please give HOPE to the orphans in Africa? I would greatly appreciate your support!
