The Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf exists to reach, teach, and nurture the Deaf of Jamaica. That means giving a language to the Deaf in Jamaica so that the gospel is accessible.
Now that school has finally concluded for the year we are looking ahead to a new school year.
Anyone who follows our ministry knows that Covid has significantly impacted on our operations and giving. And let’s be honest, it has impacted everyone everywhere. Everyone is struggling.
So, as we look ahead I want to do what I can to propel us through the rest of the summer and into another school year. So here is what I’m going to do.
This year I am turning 35 years old and in connection with this I am going to run 3.5 miles a day for 35 days for my 35th birthday for $35,000. Now, this is a big commitment to me. I have always been active but running everyday has never, ever been part of my life. I think the most consecutive days running I have ever had has been 4 days. So, this is a big commitment for me.
I would like to invite you to join me in this cause.
First, I am looking for people to participate with me, to join our team, and to raise funds along with me. This might be running 3 and half miles a day with me or it might mean walking… or doing 35 burpees a day. Maybe you can bike 35 km everyday?
Second, I am looking for people to give. If you can’t participate, can you give. We are looking for individual donors and corporate sponsors. Giving amounts range from $35, just a dollar a day, to $350 to $3500 for a corporate sponsor.
Third, I am asking you all to share this fundraiser. The more people that share it the better chance we have at meeting our goal.
Last and most important, would you pray for this fundraiser and pray for the Deaf of Jamaica. We can’t hope to reach the lost without the Lord guiding our every step. So, when is this all going to take place? We are starting on August 15 and we run though September 18th. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about what we're doing and I can't wait to see what God does with this!
THANKS TO ALL THE TEAMS PARTICIPATING!
