12 miles and counting…

Saturday morning was quite a work out…we took a step up to twelve miles, with the humidity, and the distance it was a challenge let me tell you. I have to say however I am very excited to have completed it. To be able to say I am almost half way there is a big deal, to me anyway. I am training for a marathon on November 16. So we are getting there, we are going to be ready.

I was very inspired when I went to run, because when we got there, there were a couple of guys who were taking a break, that had already run 24 miles and were running 25 more. I cant imagine what kind of condition you must be in to do that, they were training for a 100 mile run, I didn’t even know there was such a thing. WOW, 100 miles. It was truly inspiring to think that you can get your body to do that. It just takes consistant discipline and major mental drive to do it.

I have to say there were a couple of times I wanted to say I can’t finish, but my friend, kept me going, and I begin to imaging the young ladies that we are raising money for. Their little faces are forever etched in my mind, and not only them but the thousands who I haven’t seen, that we will reach in the future that are currently captive in the sex trade, one of our objectives in this run is to help fund our global reach efforts next year, which all will either directly or indirectly combat human trafficking. We want it to stop, and we are doing what we can, and this is a way to raise money. When you think about what they go through, what they contend with day in and day out, let me tell you it will keep you running.

Secondly its a goal I set that before I turn 40 I will run a marathon. I will do it. I’m believing for God to keep us healthy and strong to continue our training, and get it done so we can run and raise the money needed to do what needs to be done.

What is it that inspires you to go beyond where you think you can?

What a Trip!

Wow, we are here and smooth worn out.  That is one long journey, but worth every minute.  Our team is terrific, great people, great attitudes, and great passion to help and change lives. We left OKC Monday afternoon and here it is wednesday evening on July 30th and we just got in a few hours ago, it is a  haul.  We had a great time getting here.  We met with our friends from New life, Pisit and Karen, and we got the schedule lined out and are believing the next few days are going to be high impact, fun and exciting, world changing ministry for the people of Cambodia, and actually for us too.

I’m not going to write long, because to be honest it wouldn’t make any sense, its taking everything I have just write this…Can you Jet lag? We got in, ate together, had a team meeting and Now everyone is off to bed.

Everyone is feeling great, and ready for the challenge.  We love you all and thanks for sending us to help change the world.

We’re on our way…

Well, one of our teams is already at the airport and preparing to leave for san fransisco, we will be leaving for the airport in about an hour.  Then is the big hop from the US to Cambodia.  We are truly prepared and believing that God is going to use us to help those who need it, and to share His love with those who need Him.

This next two weeks will a fast paced ministry experience, with exposure to a great people, and to great need.  Pray for us, as we attempt to serve the people of Cambodia, and most importantly continue our efforts to bring hope to the forgotten children.  We are on a crash course with human trafficking and it is our desire to do everything we can to stop it!

Be watching the blogs I will give daily updates when possible. (depending on internet access).  could be a problem in the province.

God Bless You all
