Today, I won a $150 American Express card in a contest. I was pretty psyched, as you can imagine, thinking of all the things I could use it for, but no matter what I spent it on, I never would have valued it as the same price of a life. In Xuan's case, her life was set at $15.00.... only 10% of that! My card could have bought Xuan and nine of her friends for life! As you read her story, I encourage you to pray about how God would lead you to give to help girls like Xuan. Even if you can't afford much, three people giving $5 could save a life! And even that one life saved at $15 would be worth as many miles as I could possibly run. It's so easy for me to forget about what's happening on the other side of the world. This running project has been so humbling. I wouldn't say it's changed my life in the sense that it altered my lifestyle in a big way, but I've found that there are plenty of simple, little things I can do that will make an eternal impact for the better! Keep searching, keep giving, keep running. Xuan deserves it. Jesus deserves it. And pray that I may do the same.
12.00 miles for Xuan
100.52 miles to date!!!
PRAISE GOD for his victory! It is by his grace alone that I can even lift my foot to step.
Because He first loved me,
