Race 2 Hope!

Greg has decided to run the P.F. Changs Rock N Roll Marathon here in Phoenix in an effort to raise support for Spirit Liberia. Our goal is to raise $100,000! Yes, the goal is BIG, but we know our God is able! He is preparing a team of people who will be running along with him as well as organizing support etc. If you are interested in sponsoring him for the race or helping in another way, please contact us! We are very excited to see what God will do through Greg's efforts. Greg was informed about this Marathon through a friend of ours who is partnering with us in Spirit Liberia, Todd Whitwer. They will be running together with anyone else who decides to run this Marathon. The run will be on January 18. They will run the race, and then they will be leaving for Liberia soon after to oversee some of our agricultural projects. Please keep them in your prayers as they train for this run and as they again prepare for the long journey to Liberia (but hey, at least they aren't running TO Liberia!). I could not imagine EVER running 26 miles all in one stretch! If I added together all of the running I have done in my lifetime, I don't think it would add up to 26 miles! I know, that is pretty sad. Some of us were made for running, and some of us were not! Greg was definitely made for running and has been a runner since childhood. He actually LIKES it, which I totally cannot even relate with :) So, his training has begun, and here are some of the pictures of the 8 mile run he did today. ~Vanessa
