25 days update 5

Friends I am in the final couple weeks of collecting money for Gracehaven. Here is how: 5k for 25 days.

4 days left! Hard to believe that 21 days have passed since I have begun. God has used this time to teach me much about about compassion and to increase my heart for the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Surprisingly my body has held up well. Just my shin on my left leg is sore and the calf on my right like is getting sore. Nothing a couple of pain killers can’t help! The pain though has been a reminder of the pain that those enslaved live in everyday. I realize that the pain I experience is only a tiny fraction of what they live in. Yesterday I realized why so many turn to drugs and alcohol. When you experience that much torment at the hands of others how could you not want to use something to escape.

I also find myself praying increasingly more for the church to find greater ways for involvement in the fight against human trafficking. I pray that pastors will be awakened and lead their churches to pray and then allow the Spirit to guide members to get involved in other ways.

Finally I still need lots and lots of help to make the $5000 goal. A little over $2000 has come in. Please consider giving only if it is $10. I am hopeful that this goal will be met!

Thanks to all of you for your love and support during this endeavor!

Here is an event in the Cincinnati area for those of you who would like to learn more about the fight against human trafficking: The Power of 1
