BENEFITING: THE KINGS MEN

EVENT DATE: Nov 24, 2013

THE STORY:

Hey friends, family, strangers, and curious would-be supporters,

Come run 50 miles with me and help bring healing to a man in need! If your legs are not up to it, there is another way.

Quick back story. After departing the easy life in the Marines and entering full-time men's ministry with The King's Men, God has graced me with some monumental experiences of seeing his work in the lives of the men involved in our apostolate. Of those experiences, the greatest I've witnessed, and personally shared, are the profound healing encounters with Christ that men receive on our Samson Healing Retreats (http://www.SamsonRetreat.com/).  Growing this retreat to reach more men has become my personal mission, and I invite each of you to partner with me in bringing more wounded warriors in the spiritual battle to this healing encounter: first in prayer, and second in treasure.

So what is Samson you ask? Samson Retreat seeks to bring men with wounds of abuse, abandonment, post-traumatic stress, addiction, and other emotional and spiritual traumas to a profound encounter with Christ the Divine Healer.  Through the Sacramental Life of the Catholic Church, fraternal bonding, and an active and manly retreat program, participants encounter Christ's mercy and healing in ways that leave many unpacking their experiences for the months to come. For me, Samson brought closure to emotional and spiritual wounds from my combat deployment, bringing me to a place of peace where I finally allowed Christ to embrace me and restore me. It impacted my marriage for the better, brought peace to my work-life, and led me to a deeper compassion for people in general. I desire more men to experience this fraternal embrace from Christ so to see the world anew!

The funds you contribute will go mainly toward financial assistance for Samson attendees, with a lesser portion going towards further development of the program. Here are a few recommended support options.

$.10/mile= $5.00

$.50/mile = $25.00

$1.00/mile= $50.00

$2.00/mile= $100.00

>$2.00/mile=I do a backflip and fail miserably

Join my fundraising team and bring your network of supporters to bear in this cause.

Out of gratitude for God's generosity in you, 10% of all funds raised will be tithed for the Tamar Center, a Christian mission dedicated to bringing men and women out of the human trafficking industry in Pattaya Beach Thailand. Give to 2 great charities in one donation! See (http://www.tamarcenter.org/en).

The race is on 23 November. I will be offering my training and race for the future participants of Samson.  Furthermore, I will lift up the special intentions of all contributors in my rosaries throughout the race. Lastly, I invite each of you to be with me in prayer this day as well. Thank you for your continued prayers and support. God Bless you and your families.
