I'm a part of an awesome organization based right here in Durango Colorado. In Cooperation with The River Church, First Baptist, New Hope, and several others, this whole town takes a day out of the year to focus on the needs of orphans around the world.
The River Run For Orphans was a HUGE success this Saturday, as hundreds of locals decided to take awareness to the next level. Overall, I believe the run raised somewhere near $50K for various orphan projects around the world. And what could be better? At least the Bible seems to think THIS IS THE DEAL!! "Pure and undefiled religion is to take care of widows and orphans in their distress; and to remain unstained from the world." (James 1:27)
Check this out.
We're working on taking it to a national stage, so if you're interested in having an Orphan Run in your town, let me know. We can make it happen. The next one…Colorado Springs, October 2.
God is on the move!!
