BENEFITING: Kailua Church of the Nazarene
ORGANIZER: Kailua Church of the Nazarene
EVENT DATE: Mar 10, 2013
I did it! I actually completed running the whole 1/2 Marathon. And the most exciting part is that I ran it under 3 hours (2:56.47). For me, I'm still amazed as I still don't consider myself a "runner", but I am still very much committed to the Summer Mission that my church is taking part in and I saw this as a great opportunity to get the word out and have my friends support my run and our mission!
I’d love it if you’d read about our Mission and then choose to help support us as we endeavor to change our world to the glory of God! Thanks

As part of our Mission Statement: “To share God’s grace at anytime, to anyone, in anyway” the Kailua Church plans to send out 2 Summer Mission Teams made up of volunteers from our congregation in the Summer of 2013.
The Mission Trip takes place in July and the destination is to the Jungles of Peru, along the Maranon River. This Work & Witness team will be helping to reconstruct a Church Building, assisting with a Pastors Conference of over 200 pastors; and will supply needed supplies to the pastors as they go back to their villages.
The 2nd Team will spend two weeks in August taking the Jesus film to remote communities on the Island Nation of Madagascar off the mainland of Africa. Using small motor bikes and taking with them solar powered film equipment, the team will go to villages where it is very likely that the story of Jesus has never been told before.
The cost per person for the trip to Peru is $2000; for the trip to Madagascar is $4500. Funds donated from this fund raiser will be used to purchase a portable Jesus Film equipment backpack with solar powered projector as well as pastoral supplies for our Peruvian pastors. Additional funds will assist our volunteer missionaries with their travel expenses.
