Half Marathon for Malawi mission trip

A Charities project Plymouth, United Kingdom

Half Marathon for Malawi mission trip

I am running the Plymouth Half Marathon with my dad in order to raise money to take the youth on mission to Malawi in August 2016.

I am part of a team taking our young people on mission to Malawi with a charity called Medic Malawi. We will live and be part of a community for around 2 weeks next August. In this time we will serve the community through work in their orphanage, school, church and hospital. This is a really great opportunity to take the youth to another culture, to learn from and serve other people in the name of Jesus! 

I believe we are called to go out into the world and simply love other people. During this trip not only would I love to think the people who we meet will have their lives changed but also our lives and the young people's lives will be changed by simply loving and living with others in a different culture.

The flights alone are £1,250 that we have been asked to raise. The rest, which will go towards all the extra giving out there, is being fundraised by church. So simply your donations will help towards the overall cost but specifically the flights. For this to happen I have £400 left to fundraise and so my dad and I are going to do Plymouth Half Marathon..or at least try to! 

Asking for money is never easy so if you can't financially give then please pray for the trip (even if you aren't a praying person!) I will also have a handwritten sponsor form if you'd prefer to do it that way.  Thank you for your kind donations and prayers in advance and I look forward to sharing all about the trip when I return.
