On Saturday, April 1, Brenda and I will celebrate April Fools Day by toeing the line on a 5K fun run that coincides with a 50K called the Dam 50.
The “fun” is that both the50K and 5K includes the “death climb”. It is a mile long climb up a steep mountain promised by the race director to be the “slowest mile” anyone has ever run. An email this week said, “paramedics will be waiting at the end”
· Are you ready for the Death Climb?! The course includes the death climb this year, so be careful making your way down! We will have paramedics at the bottom should they be needed. Everyone signed their waiver, right? ;)
Many have extended generosity in the past and given towards many different missions efforts. This race is dedicated to a teaching missions trip to Ethiopia and Tanzania. The Master’s degree from AGTS and International Coaching Federation certification authorizes me to encourage the emerging leadership in both countries. In Ethiopia, I will teach two weeklong classes on “God and Angels”. In Tanzania, I will meet with the Tanzanian Assemblies of God Superintendent and leadership team to coach them to discover God’s plan, move forward, and build their confidence.
Here is what I am asking. I would like for you to consider purchasing my latest book for $2.99. I recently completed a book on fasting, entitled, “Life in the Fast Lane: Making an Ancient Practice New” and it is only available on Kindle. Its overriding theme is unconditional love. Those who read it receive an undeniable fact that God loves everyone, and it has nothing to do with our performance or abilities, or lack thereof. See the link below.
This trip has been saved for with money set aside in the past. Future trips I will need some prayer driven financial assistance, but not this one. Any donations you feel compelled to give will be set aside for future missions trips. See link below.
Most importantly, pray that the mission to Ethiopia and Tanzania is blessed.
It is a fabulous moment in our 39 years of marriage to run/walk together. Partnerships are an amazing adventure. Pray the paramedics are not needed or a marriage counselor.
