Update for Tuesday, June 18th:
8.67 miles today, 446.56 miles total
I'm really starting to like walking.
WHOA! Just figured that I've only got 10 days to hit 500 miles ... that comes to 6.68 miles per day (5.34 per day if I do 2 days on vacation) We're very close to making the $$ goal (SERIOUSLY, thank you all!) but the 500 mile mark looms! I really love my job ... enough to walk 500 miles just to keep it. God loves his girls.
THERE IS A CHALLENGE ON THE TABLE!!
I have a $5,000 matching challenge! If we can come up with $5,000 in gifts, it will double and bless Faithful Hearts twice as much. This is separate from the per/mile donations ... but there is a challenge there too! Who do you know that would love a tax deduction for 2013? Who do you know that God has blessed and has a giving heart? Will you call them and challenge them to help?
Funds raised in this 90 days will help us afford to stay in our lovely location for another year. $1,500.00 off the top will be designated for use to help women who need to re-enter the workforce because of an unexpected change in life circumstances. This is a fantastic time for the Body of Christ ... the Church ... to step up and make a difference in the lives of people with enormous need. I dare you! I will walk. Please join me in walking, in prayer or by support. I have had the joy of asking God's blessing on SO MANY! God is working this!!! Seriously, how far can I go in 90 days?
I've been dared to strive for 500 miles! If there's a pledge on it... I WILL!
Email how you want to be involved to:
Donations will be receipted and are tax deductible.
(All walking miles for this 90 day walking period are being documented via GPS on the iPhone "MapMyRun" app.)
Secondly, can you get the word out to all of your friends to join us on facebook and to put their info in our database? We have such good news to share!! Come be involved with us! You might just fall in love with Jesus and his girls in a whole new way!!
