Now let me share with you the ‘love’ part of this run...
We here at Fox River have listened to God’s call and have partnered internationally to share the Hope of Jesus Christ in both Kenya and Nicaragua! This run raises funds to help us do just that.
The Run for Love funds Hygiene Packs and helps a team go to distribute them in Nicaragua.
What’s a hygiene pack you ask?? LOVE in a drawstring bag!
We build up these ‘hygiene packs’ with very basic (to us) things... bars of soap, shampoo, wash clothes, band aids, fingernail clippers, combs, water bottle, neosporin, razors, tooth brushes and paste, laundry detergent, sewing kit, deodorant, etc... things that we can pick up at any corner store at any moment! Things we so easily have at our finger tips and take for granted every day. Things as simple as a bar of soap give us (the team) an opportunity to share about what Christ has done for us! Through the free gift (because of your participation) we offer them, we share about the free gift Christ has offered us! A toothbrush gets to be a life changing opportunity!
This might seem silly to think about, but these packs are changing lives. These teams get to see some of that!
You as runners, walkers, cheerers, crawlers... are making this possible! Thank you!
