Race to 2025

Hi family and friends!

I am excited to tell you about my next adventure! However, this one is in Michigan! This next adventure coming up is from February 22-24. I am doing an event with Wycliffe Bible Translators. Basically the race is 2 days at Cranhill Ranch and we (coed teams of 4) have different physical and linguistic challenges to complete during the day.

In order to participate in this exciting adventure, my team must raise a minimum of $2,000 ($500 per racer). This is where your involvement in the global Bible translation movement comes into play! Funds raised through Race to 2025: Cameroon go toward:  Development of the several language training programs in Cameroon, including:
• Linguistic analysis       • Bible translation and Scripture use     
• Community, church-based and school literacy
·   The aim is each language will have: appropriate documentation; a translated New Testament available in printed and oral form; self-supporting literacy and Scripture use programs; and trained, experienced and motivated translators, literacy teachers and scripture use promoters.
·     Emphasis is on capacity building and partnership with local committees and churches. 

Even though I am not physically going overseas, I am glad that I have this amazing opportunity to
make a difference in Cameroon. For more information go to the website below,
