Lately I talk a lot on this blog about "our walk"...spiritually mostly. Well...I am so excited about the mission fundraiser idea that God has laid on my heart! We are working on organizing a 5K Fun Walk/Run for WMU! It would be an annual mission event and each year the beneficiary would change. And hopefully next year it would be a county wide WMU event! This year it will be sponsored by our church and the main project focus would be Pure Water Pure Love. It will be in October and registration will be $25 including a t shirt. Start gathering your friends, family, coworkers, etc. to form a team! The largest team will get a trophy! Once plans get finalized I'll post more details.
I do want to share the theme verse for the race...it is the WMU theme for the next two years:
Hebrews 12:1-2 "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
So here is the challenge....start training today! Walking/running/strolling...get ready to go!
