4th Annual 5k Run/Walk
SATURDAY, MAY 25, 2013, 8:00 A.M.-5K / 9:00 A.M. 1K FUN RUN
Welcome to Project 320, With the help from our local community we want to raise the funds to help the local church provide access to clean water in a part of the world that needs the Living Water of the Gospel, as well as clean drinking water. We want to show what the kingdom looks like by supplying clean water and the good news, all while building relationships and showing unconditional love.
This year Project 320 is raising funds to dig a well in the small village of Jobe, Nicaragua. This village has one well that has been contaminated by farm waste (pesticides and animal waste). The project will be under the supervision of ACIBEN—Christian Association of Baptist Churches in Nicaragua, based out of Sebaco, Nicaragua. The well will bring reliable, clean drinking water to this small village. The local pastor will not only be providing drinking water to people but also the Living Water of the Gospel. The image below is a picture of their current water supply. To view more pictures of the village of Jobe go to the project tab or click here.
In August of this year there will be an opportunity to visit the church through a short term mission trip to worship with the church and give some of you an opportunity to see the impact of the funds you have raised through Project 320 first-hand. Proceeds will go directly to drilling a community well in Jobe, Nicarague to allow them an adequate supply of safe drinking water.
What an amazing race day on Saturday! God was good! 253 registered runners showed up (208-5K; 45-1K). Thank you to everyone that has supported us so far on this journey. We are halfway there for the village of Jobe, Nicaragua, and are trusting God for the additional $6,000. Project320 and its origin is more real to us now than ever. We don't want to limit God's POWER by our unbelief. "When we sense that God is asking us to serve Him in a new or unfamiliar way, we should never say no simply because we feel inadequate. "We have only a few loaves," we may say. But the Lord replies, "Trust Me. They are more than enough." —D H R
"Now glory be to God! By His mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope!"
