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

River City 5K This Weekend

Well we're back home from vacation and I'm trying to get back into running. We came back to heat indices over 100 degrees and high humidity. Yesterday I went 9 miles and today 7 miles after the two weeks off. I had to walk more than usual, but with the adverse weather conditions following the time off, that's okay with me. Only 107 days until the Marine Corps Marathon, so I've got to keep hitting the road, regardless of the weather.

My wife and I are still running a race every month and this month it's the River City 5K in North Little Rock, Arkansas. The race is hosted by River City Ministries, a Christian organization working in the inner city to spread the Gospel and help those in need.

About River City Ministries

"RCM is a faith-based ministry. Our mission is to reach the hearts of people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. To aid our mission we provide food to the hungry, clothing to those who need them, medical care to those that do not have access to medical insurance, help for children, and jobs for those who want to work."

It's going to be hot and muggy, but we want to keep running to Reach people for Jesus, Raise money for charity, and Remember Amanda.

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. " --2 Corinthians 9:7

You can help by donating to one of the children's charities we support through our fundraising pages. We started in March with a goal to raise $1000 each for St. Jude Children's Hospital, Arkansas Children's Hospital, and Soaring Wings Christian Home & Ranch. Thanks to our generous donors we've blown through our goal for St. Jude with almost $2500 donated. We still have a way to go for ACH and Soaring Wings. Any donations to any of these three charities is greatly appreciated, regardless of the size of the gift. Please choose one of these great children's charities and make whatever donation you feel comfortable with.

You can also help us by becoming a fan of our Facebook page and letting your friends know about us. Interacting with our Facebook page with comments and "Likes" does even more to make us more visible to others and helping us accomplish our mission.

Thanks in advance for your donation to one of our supported charities, and may God richly bless you!

If you don't know Jesus as your personal savior, if you're missing the faith, hope, and love written about here, if you want the peace that we as Christians have in our lives, please visit our Got Jesus? page for step-by-step instructions on how to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.
