“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of one of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:40
The Lord Jesus tells us in Matthew 25:34-40 that whatever we do for the hungry, thirsty, sick, and others in need, we do for Christ. Community of Joy is excited to once again be doing the work of Christ by running a half-marathon with Team World Vision. Team World Vision is a ministry that raises funds through donor-supported runs for clean water, sanitation, and hygiene programs in Africa by providing wells, water systems, rain water harvesting systems, and many other permanent water solutions. By providing clean water, preventable child death is cut by up to 57%.
God has placed this cause on the hearts of our 9 person team. We are a mix of first-time and experienced runners pushed out of our comfort zones for the cause of Christ. We pray that through our fundraising efforts and the work of World Vision many people will be reached with clean water and that in the process, many will receive the Living Water of Christ.”
Please join us in our journey with Team World Vision. We will be training for our half-marathon (13.1 miles) throughout the summer and running our race on August 2nd, which begins at 8:00 a.m. in St. Paul. Maps of the race course will be available at Community of Joy. You can support our team and ministry in three equally important ways: by praying for our team and the ministry of Team World Vision, by coming out to cheer for us on race day, and by making a donation to the team using the following link.
Thank you! Team Community of Joy
