Sponsor Me as I Run for Yin Lee

Sponsor Me as I Run for Yin Lee

I'm going to China in November to see Yin Lee's school. Please take a minute and check out this video and you can get the idea behind why we want to help:

For some reason the hyperlink manager is not working. I'm sorry. The link will work if you cut and paste.

I'm personally attempting to raise $4,500 of the $40,000 cost to renovate the school. To do that I'm asking people to sponsor me in the KC half marathon Oct 15. Would you be willing to sponsor me at $5, $10 or more per mile? You can make your contribution on the Project Partner web site:

I ran 9 miles today in my quest to build up strength for the longer runs. My more normal training right now is to run 6 miles at a time 4 times a week. But from now on at least one of those runs needs to be a long one. I'll likely add a mile a week to the long run before tapering off the week of the run. I could use your prayers. I love to run. It means even more when I know it can help children have an education. There is nothing as powerful as education to break the cycle of poverty.

Our Chinese partners, The China Agape Ministry, is born out of a local church. The church looks for local projects that need support and when they find a worthy one they raise money in their church to help. They ask for our help in selected situations. They also get the city government to participate so everyone wins. When they actually give the money they give it through the local church so the local church is the hero in the community. They want to stay in the background so the good will goes to the local church. In this way the community and the government sees the church as an asset. 

This will be my sixth trip and every time I go I come back impressed with the love, compassion, and strategic nature of our partners. Human need is significant whether it is in China or Olathe. One of the major differences is that in the United States we have religious freedom and church on every corner. In China it is a different story. But imagine with me what could happen if the largest country in the world, with the second highest GNP, and the place where the largest revival is going on, could be filled with the love of Christ. Wow! What a combination! I'm praying for that and I'm doing more than just praying, I'm running. Will you help? Thank you.
