News about the upcoming 5k from Jill D:
This Sunday Morning (Father’s Day) our church is putting on a 5K Run For Orphans!
100% of the profits will go to the orphanage that we visited last summer in Honduras.
They will be able to purchase food, diapers, medicine, vitamins… really anything that is needed!
Not a day has gone by where I don’t think about these babies that I had the privilege of visiting, holding and loving on for the short time we were there.
Every night, when I rock my own daughter to sleep, whispering songs into her ears, my mind wanders to these children who do not have someone tucking them in. I think about how they have to put themselves to bed, do not get ‘bed time’ stories, and do not have anyone there to pick them up if they cry at night.
Yet, at the same time, if these babies were not in this orphanage, they would not survive. This is the best place they could be. They have their basic needs being met and have lots of other children surrounding them.
They are a family.
It’s such an overwhelming thought to try to figure out how you can help, and you never feel like you can do enough for these sweet children, but every ounce of effort really goes a long way.
So, I am thankful that I’ve had the opportunity to help put together this 5K!
And if you are free this Sunday Morning and live in the area, I hope you can join us!
Everything we raise will be used to bless this orphanage.
You can learn more about this orphanage at http://www.panamhealth.org/
You can find registration forms online at speedy-feet.com or you can sign up on Race Day.
And if you don’t run (like me!), you can push a stroller or even walk a dog!
Everyone is welcome!
