BENEFITING: TIMOTHY LEADERSHIP TRAINING INSTITUTE
EVENT DATE: May 13, 2017
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT! We are waiting for the Canadian totals, but it looks like we either hit or came very close to our goal.
**You can still give to this project**
If you would like to support the Ethiopia project please send a check to:
Timothy Leadership Training Institute1700 28th St Se, Grand Rapids, MI 49508 and put "Run for Ethiopia" in the memo line.
What's a 5/3 run?
Is it ... a fraction of a race?
If so, I'm in trouble - because the race is 25K, and 5/3 of 25K is almost 42K, and that's almost a marathon - and I'm registered to run!
OK, here's the scoop. There's a bank with the name "Fifth Third." Every year there's a 25K Fifth Third River Bank Run in Grand Rapids. Next month, May 13, almost 20,000 people are expected to compete.
My daughter Kristin and I will be among them. We will be running to raise money for Timothy Leadership Training (TLT) in Ethiopia. It's been so much fun training together over the past 3 months. Even if we don't raise a dime, our time together will be reward enough.
But we'd like this to be part of something bigger. We hope to raise $3000 to help train 150 Ethiopian church leaders with TLT. TLT provides basic training for church leaders who do not have access to Bible School or seminary. All the training will be done by Ethiopians who themselves have completed TLT training over the past 3 years.
Will you support our run for Ethiopian church leaders? Big or small - it all adds up! We have a 3-year commitment to TLT in Ethiopia, so we’d love to exceed our goal and get a jump on next year. Maybe we could even raise the bar, and add another country. Just don’t start talking about a marathon…
