As we were planning a motorcycle trip in USA, and talking about it with Grant, he made us aware of an upcoming fundraiser called “The GOOD Run” 2011, and the fact that people and particularly children in Guatemala (Casa Esperanza Children’s Home) were raising funds for Fe Viva’s school in Managua, Nicaragua. This motivated us to see if we could raise funds and awareness of this ministry within our church family by doing a long motorcycle ride, called, “The GOOD Ride”. We prepared a cover page and printed off a sign up sheet, and Grant spoke at a morning service about what we were doing. The response was great, with many people supporting “The GOOD Ride”. Our motorcycle trip, along the Gulf of Mexico, starting at Florida through to Texas, visiting friends in Dallas, then back to the Ocala, Florida area was exciting and rewarding. It was great to be a small part of this fundraising initiative. We raised over $1500.00 for these children in Nicaragua and we trust the God will continue to place in our journey, opportunities for His people to show their love for the Body of Christ.

34 children running over 200km in 2 hours for 270 children. This was the very first GOOD Run with Casa Esperanza. The children rose to the occasion and ran their hearts out in the heat. What a blessing they are and they got cake.
