To all my running peeps … this post is for you. Some of you may have read a few of my posts about As Our Own, or heard me talk about them. This is an amazing ministry in India that rescues girls from enslavement. I have such a burden for India and for As Our Own. In the near future, I will be writing more about ways to get involved, but I wanted to share tonight about some upcoming races that you runners may be interested in. 10 girls have been chosen to be featured at 10 different races in 10 different cities – from October through June. NYC isn’t one of the cities this time around but raising awareness and support for these girls is a great reason to travel to a new city to run a half-marathon. Check out this video below and then the As Our Own Racing Page for more information. Even if you’re not a runner, pass this information on and consider getting involved. Helping these girls is the heart of God. Spread the word of hope for India.
"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
