The GOOD Run: Goal. Los Cerritos November 2013

A Wife’s Perspective:

I’ve had the privilege and honour to be married to a wonderful man of God for 34 years!  From day one, it’s been a wild spiritual ride, complete with miracles of healing, deliverance, provision, and a freedom to believe that we serve a really BIG God!  We learned that when God asks, we obey and He responds, every time.  Our faith grows because HE is faithful.

in 2012 Kim obeyed God’s directive to run a 25 km race to raise funds for children in Nicaragua.  Although reluctant, Kim said yes and began the painful training needed to accomplish his goal.  The “Good Run” raised $80,000 in 2012.

in 2013 Kim ran a full marathon – 42Km, with a goal to raise $100,000 for the children in Nicaragua.  Last year’s team of runners were not able to join him that year, so without his running partners, Kim had to dig deep to find the motivation to push through illness, fatigue and a hectic travel schedule, to accomplish his training runs.  He is an amazing man.  At 54 he was in the best shape he had been in since high school – and that was an accomplishment, because he was a football star at eighteen!

Kim’s selfless act of obedience to God’s calling is an example to me and to us all.  He wouldn’t or couldn’t do what he is doing for any other reason, than to bless those less fortunate, those who have no voice, those innocent ones who were born into their situation of poverty.  The new school property in Nicaragua provides education to 320 students along with a basic breakfast every day.  The aging facility needs a lot of upgrades to meet the heavy demand.  We want to build a new kitchen facility, new bathrooms, a staff room, more classrooms, and recently due to heavy rains 50 meters of a perimeter wall collapsed and needs immediate repair.  We would like to enhance the breakfast program to reach out to those in the community who do not attend school.  There are many more children who do not attend school because there is no more room.

 Kim ran 42km (joined by youth from Casa Esperanza and other adults) on November 9, 2013 in Guatemala. He was able to raise $15,000 for the school in Nicaragua and inspire others to make a difference

Sincerely, Lynn Weiler (Kim’s wife)
