"Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, 'Look at us!' So the man gave them his full attention, expecting to get something from them. Then Peter said, 'Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk." (Acts 3:3-6). The first few words of this passage are remarkable- Peter and John look straight at this man who is begging, has been lame since birth and address him as a fellow man. They do not avoid eye contact or ignore this man's calls for help, but rather seek him out and provide him with a gift far greater than his expectations. Light of Life is an incredible ministry that gives this same life-transforming gift to those who are seeking help in the Northside of Pittsburgh. This ministry provides immediate relief to men, women and children who are facing crisis due to poverty, homelessness or addiction but even more importantly, Light of Life has Christ-centered programs designed to bring life change and holistic restoration. Our love for the city of Pittsburgh- and those who live in it- has grown strong over the past several years and we are choosing to run with the Light of Life team in the 2016 Pittsburgh marathon because we believe in the mission of their ministry. We hope that you choose to donate and support us on behalf of Light of Life in this race!
