Hey Everyone, Here’s the video that we made that briefly talks about the girls and the run. Please watch it, and consider pledging my run. I think this is going to b e a great effort for our church to really advance the kingdom of God.

So, maybe I’m a big moron, but I have decided to run in the Seattle Half Marathon. That is a pretty big deal since I’m a pretty big man. As a church we are running to raise money to send 5 girls in Kenya to a top notch school, so that they can have a future other than being a 3rd wife baby-machine. So this is a pretty big deal, and I want to be a part of it. I’ll post a video we made with John Kruger, and Kelly Ushikubo as soon as I get it encoded. John is the missionary connection to the Nehemiah Project in Kenya, and Kelly is the one who got people excited to run the Half Marathon in the first place.
On Sunday we launched this project. I was preaching and I mentioned that I was thinking about running. After service I had several people talk to me who wanted to run with me. And we started a fat bet. So I was more in. Later in the day, I heard that my friend heard that I WAS running and now he wants to run, so I’m pretty much running this race in the court of public opinion.
Last night I went to the Lynnwood HS track, and I ran an 11 minute, mile. I have a lot of work to do to get ready for this. Anyone have any advice?
Kathy and I have been praying a lot about how to get through this childbirth, and we just had a major prayer request answered. God is so good to us. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
