I reached the goal I had set and surpassed it. So, the rest of the funds (above the set goal) will go to the Oklahoma City Memorial Museum.
Below is what was published before the run:
To follow my progress during the run on Sunday, April 27, 2014, go to
and put my Bib Number in (1990). Go ahead and register today. I invite you to sponsor a mile for the 2014 Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon that I will be running on April 27. Cindy and I have been involved with the Comunidad de Ninos de la Sagrada Familia, near Lima Peru, for over 3 years now. We travel under the guidance of Olive Branch Ministries International.
The funds that I raise will go towards a May trip (Medical mission in Piura, Peru, where I will be doing some translating and planning for a summer activity) and towards the the July Trip (VBS trip to the Comunidad where I work with the University students and conduct a communidad worship assembly).
Each mile counts. I have been training for this marathon since December 2013. I'm excited and ready!
Below you can see a video posted by Westover Hills Church of Christ and learn a little bit about our trip in July (the video is a report from 2012's July trip)... and you can see me leading worship (at 2:38 of the video).
In this video, you'll hear from Miguel, the leader of the "Comunidad". Please contact me with any questions.
