So, Monday evening, we got an awesome call from our brother-in-law, Jeff, who is an elder at our church, First Alliance. The elders of the church had their monthly meeting and they had voted on something pretty awesome!
First of all, First Alliance Church is part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination. This allows our church to participate in one of the largest missionary organizations in the world. Needless to say, the church is very involved in missions. For the past three years, First Alliance has hosted an annual Run4aReason, which is a 5k run that benefits the church's mission projects.
Fast foward to Monday night... Because of the elder's vote, they decided that this year, some of the proceeds from the Run4aReason will go towards our adoption fund!!! What a HUGE blessing! God is SO good and we cannot thank our church enough! It's really awesome to have the church be a part of our adoption process!
For any locals who are interested in supporting this event, it is on August 6, at 7:30am. You can get information HERE or on the Facebook event page (where you can "attend" and share with your friends) HERE. Please help spread the word and help this run turn out to be a HUGE event! :)
Which makes me realize I guess it's time for me to start getting into running... For those of you who know me, know that I hate running and exercise of all kind! Michael, on the other hand is a runner and always has been. He's the crazy kind of runner that LOVES it so much that he'll literally run 6 miles or more at 2am, just because he felt like running... Needless to say, he's really looking forward to the 5k! Guess I'd better learn to love it, because I definitely want to be involved in running it with him!
