For the 10th consecutive year, the SDB Missionary Society successfully sponsored a summer 5K fundraising event. And for the 3rd consecutive year, the event was held despite no Conference Week gathering. From all over the USA & Canada, as well as overseas, a total of 115 participants assembled, got their physical exercise in, and made their financial contribution towards two very worthy causes.
This year, participants were encouraged to form teams based on church affiliation, and there were 11 such teams, the largest one consisting of 24 members. The event theme was, “Building Up The Temple,” with Ephesians 2:21 as the theme Scripture.
We are sorry that the t-shirts designed for the event did not arrive in time, but are so grateful for the participation and contribution of so many, who once again allowed us to raise funds to support Seventh Day Baptists globally.
A total of approximately $5,000 were raised from registration fees and other contributions. Those funds were designated to be shared evenly between Rwanda to re-open church facilities closed due to new government requirements, and Nicaragua to help with the construction of a ministry center. Special thanks to all who supported.
“In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.” Ephesians 2:21
