BENEFITING: GOOD NEWS FOR THE NATIONS INC
EVENT DATE: May 19, 2013
Here is the Story, the Plan and the Outcome!
I, David, a Christ-follower from Green Bay, Wisconsin met Henry, a fellow Christ-follower from Kampala, Uganda a few months ago. It turns out Henry is a pastor and founder of a group of believers in Uganda, called Gospel Extension Mission.
Henry's mission is to bring the life-saving redemption of Jesus Christ to a part of the world that is in great need for this Good News. His outreach is growing and reaching many people in his community and around the World. My goal over the next few months is to come along side my fellow believers and support their mission.
If you are up for it, you can also join the Gospel Extension Mission Trek team to help this fundraiser reach even farther and support Gospel Extension Mission, contact me for details if you are interested in running some races for this great cause.
During the Spring, Summer and Fall, I will be running many foot races around Wisconsin. The total miles in running events will be somewhere around 50 miles, not including the many miles of training runs and stuff.
My challenge to you, should you choose to accept it, is to sponsor me with a lump sum donation based on the total of 50 miles I will be running on behalf of Gospel Extension Mission (scroll down to the bottom to see the list of events I am planning to run). So, for example, if you decide to sponsor $1 per mile, you will be supporting Henry's mission for $50 total. (I will post my training schedule and race results for each race, just so you know I am really running :->)
Just think of the impact, if 100 people support this fundraiser.
Since Henry is from out of the country, Henry's stateside partner, Good News for the Nations, a 501c3 organization based in W. Lafayette, Indiana will be receiving the funds on his behalf and dispersing the funds to Gospel Extension Mission when we are all done.
With your help, I am confident that every dollar raised will help Henry and Gospel Extension Mission as they seek to bring God's word to the people of Uganda.
Let me know if you have any additional questions or would like to help out in other ways in the near future.
Blessings to you!
