BENEFITING: FAITHQUEST MISSIONS

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2011

THE STORY:

 

Like a blob of exhaustion, I loaded into the car. I had never been to Africa and I didn’t know what to expect.All I knew was that I was going to this mega-poor country called Malawi that I had never heard of before. Figured it’d be a fun adventure. The Land Rover stopped and my expensive camera bounced on my chest as I plopped out onto the red dirt. Immediately, like a depth charge in my gut, I was overwhelmed by what my eyes were taking in. In the remnants of a corn field completely depleted, emaciated men and women were bent over tirelessly foraging for any traces of leftover crop. On the edge of the field, women were coming out of a small ditch with buckets on their head—were they really getting water from there??? Then my eyes shifted to a shirtless boy looking at me with a smile. I smiled back, but was uneasy of how to respond to his distended belly—a sign of starvation. My gaze wandered away in the default America style of avoidance. I saw the African leader of our group consoling what apparently was the distraught chief of the village. As I paced deeper into the village, I came to grips, more and more, with the fact that for these beautiful people, survival was a way of life. My heart sank as I wondered how in the world Iwassupposed to help with the 50,000 Africans in this valley…”

That was me in 2005, clueless about what could be done. I am proud to say that 6 years later, 28 churches have joined in this project, five key partnerships have been made, a second valley has been adopted, schools are being built, water wells are being drilled, transformative crop techniques are being taught, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ is being learned. People are finding hope! Joy is overflowing! Not only that, I realized that being part of the solution simply meant offering what you’ve got…and one of the things that I have is LEGS that work!

That’s why I’ve put together a relay team to run the Ragnar Relay from Huntington Beach to Coronado Island (200.9 mi) starting this Friday, April 15th! The 15 year commitment to all-encompassing community transformation in these valleys is underway, but there is so much more to do and we need your help!

As one who does this work full-time now and who was back in Malawi last summer, I can see how the donations of people—however small--are making a REAL DIFFERENCE!  What I am asking of you is to consider DONATING in support of our run for this Malawi project. I have set a personal goal of $2500—I am at $1145 now. Would you help me reach my goal? Click the orange donate button to make it happen!
