This will be my 4th year participating in the Go! St. Louis Half-Marathon to raise money for Living Water International. Last year Kelly participated with me in the marathon relay. I am part of over 300 crazy runners from the Crossing Church who have braved the cold temperatures these past several months to train for the 13.1 grueling miles that lay ahead on April 7th. We call our group Team Living Water because we run for water.
Why do I run? Because this is one way I can serve Jesus and serve the poor and less fortunate. Because diseases from unsafe drinking water kill more people every year than any illness and all forms of violence, including war. Because I take going to the faucet for a cold drink of clean water for granted! I want to bless others with the same basic need we all share.
Here is how you can help. I will do the hard part. I am asking for any donation, big or small, that you feel comfortable giving to further this amazing cause. You can give on this site, or you can make a check payable to, Team Living Water, and send to my home. To date, Living Water International has completed 11,266 well projects in 23 countries! Yeah!
You can also support me and my fellow runners by praying for our strength and endurance through the race. The great part is that we also get to talk about Jesus with those who ask, "who are you guys, and what is Living Water International?" We will have a very strong presence downtown this year with our bright yellow jerseys!
Thank you for your love and support!
