Run for Resounding Hope – May 7, 2016
We’re running to raise funds for Resounding Hope solar radios tuned to Radio 4VEH to bless families in Haiti every day. On May 7, 2016, Jay, Julianne & Kate will be running a half-marathon, the Indy500 Mini in Indianapolis; Brett will be running a half-marathon around the One Mission Society compound in Cap-Haitien, Haiti; and Wildy, Luciano, Claudine, Max, Johnny, Milton, Rodney, Anthonio, Keson, Rochenel, Junel, Renand, Mackenson, Witny, Valerie and Brianna will be running as a 4VEH relay team alongside Brett.
Why? Because we know these radios are making a huge difference in people’s lives in Haiti – reaching people with the Gospel, helping believers grow in their faith, building up the church and serving the people of Haiti in Jesus’ name.
We’re putting in the miles to raise funds for more radios. You can help by making a donation today!
Did you know:
- 4 in 5 people in Haiti live in poverty
- 4 in 5 adults can’t read well enough to cope with daily life
- 7 in 10 people live without reliable electricity
These radios, powered by the sun, really help connect often-illiterate, isolated, Voodoo-background households with the Bible in their heart language, with farming & health advice, life-saving information when disaster strikes, and friendly voices to help and encourage.
Our goal is to raise $12,000 to sponsor 200 solar radios – and bless 200 households in Haiti. That’s $60 to sponsor one radio and reach a whole family with hope every day.
We’ve been training through the cold Indiana winter – and through Haiti’s heat – to be ready to run 13.1 miles on May 7, 2016. Help us reach our goal by making a donation of $20, $60, $100, $600 or any amount you can manage. Every little helps! Your donation is tax-deductible in the US, and you will receive a receipt from One Mission Society.
