Ready to Read

The first lady of Kenya recently completed a full 42 km marathon race in order to raise money to support Kenyan women who do not have access to pre-natal and post-natal care.  I am not a first lady, and am definitely NOT called to run a marathon race!

But her courageous act really challenged and inspired me. “What can I do to make a difference?” I wondered. The plan that came to mind is to hold a Bible reading ‘marathon’ (Read-A-Thon) to raise money for missions in DOVE Africa.

Read-A-Thon jpgThe Bible Read-A-Thon starts today and will continue for two weeks. In addition to the fund-raising and amazing benefit of reading God’s word, we will also be declaring Truth in the neighborhood around our Nairobi church.

Here in Kenya, and I believe worldwide, people often seek sponsorship to participate in a walk or a run or even a golf tournament. This time, members of DOVE Kenya are encouraged to sign up for one hour of Bible reading (and give me a break now and then) at a cost of $12 per hour. I also am looking for sponsors — and the wonderful news is that the first week+ is already fully sponsored! All proceeds will go to the work of DOVE Missions in Africa.

Need to go get started…..
