This will be my 2nd year running across Haiti. The run is a microphone, a way in which we can share the stories and lives of our family members in Haiti, who simply live to survive each day. As God's people, we are not told to harvest everything and then give food to the poor. Instead we are to leave enough grain to allow the poor to work for themselves. Proverbs 14:23 says, "all hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty." Work is integral to life and gives us a sense of purpose, productivity and dignity. And that's what we aim to provide for our brothers and sisters living under hard circumstances. Not to give them a hand-out solution, but provide them with sustainable dignified jobs that can change the course of their lives. Running 230 miles across the country is not easy but we have a choice to suffer for what we are passionate about. The children and people in Haiti do not have that choice to choose to live in poverty or not, and I believe it is our responsibility to give back to those who need our help. I have faith that our work and the steps we take here and in Haiti has the potential to transform the lives of many people, as long as we work together and diligently toward our goal. So let's do this together and make the world take notice of our efforts and wonder why and how we do what we do.
