Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,--Hebrews 12:1

Toad Suck Daze 10K/5K for Soaring Wings Ranch

Today we're taking a break from the cleanup effort in Vilonia and going to run the Toad Suck Daze 10K/5K in Conway, Arkansas. There's supposedly an army of college kids from around the state coming in today to help with the cleanup, so they'll have plenty of hands. We've worked the last 4 days helping cut trees, tarp roofs, and clear debris, but today we're running again!

Our primary target for funds we raise today is Soaring Wings Ranch, a Christian group home for troubled youth. The ranch takes in kids who've been abused or neglected and offers them a chance to be raised in a Christian environment. The kids attend public school, but Christian house parents insist they do their homework and devote time each day to Bible study. It's a wonderful place that's making a real difference in the lives of troubled kids. Please consider making a donation to Soaring Wings Ranch today. Even a small donation can be a big help.

Next weekend, we'll be taking a different track in our fundraising efforts. I've been asked to MC a benefit concert for the ranch. The local worship band, The Gathering, set up the concert and has asked me to speak during the several intermissions. I'm looking forward to this event as a way to further spread our ministry.

"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' " --Matthew 25:40

God bless you all. Please do what you can to help us Reach, Raise, and Remember!
