Ruth's walk for Barnabas Fund

Because of the COVID-19, Ruth's original walk is postponed to next Spring. In the meantime she has decided to walk the same distance where she lives in Dunbar to raise money for Barnabas. I will be posting updates here on how she is going. 

My name is Ruth (Laura's mother-in-law) and I love doing long distance walks. I have been on various long walks in Scotland and England. Recently I walked the Pennine Way in England, which is 268 miles (431 km) and was quite an adventure! I now want to fill in a gap in Scotland by walking from Inverness to John o' Groats (a newly opened walking route, which is 147 miles (235km) in total), which I will completing in 11 days. This will be a particularly exciting walk to me because we used to live in Caithness, and I will be looking up old haunts! At the same time I will be raising funds for Barnabas fund, and I will be delighted if you supported me. You can read up about Barnabas fund below.


More information about Barnabas Fund: Barnabas Fund is a Christian charity which encourages support and prayer for Christians around the world where they face persecution, discrimination or disadvantage. It provides information, encourages prayer and action, and channels financial support to projects designed and run by local Christians and churches in some 75 countries.

A story that particularly caught my attention was a village in an Asian country where Christians were not allowed to use the village well because they were not Muslim. They had to walk to the river for unclean water. When Barnabas Fund installed a well for the Christian community they shared it with their Muslim neighbours, one of whom commented that they had always thought Christians were their enemies and now they knew they were friends because they shared their water with them.
