A Team from Alabama
Maggie Raburn, Melaina Raburn, Mark Freeman, Mark Janezic, Rachel Leahy, and Mike Leahy from US visited Challenge Farm in July and conducted the third annual 5K run to a local village and back. All runners, including kids and staff, received medals and enjoyed the run! We discussed that a race is not always easy and neither is life, the prize in this race is candy, but the prize in life is eternal life in heaven, and we can be inspired to run like Jesus when we run like superheroes. Philippians 3:12 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
We had craft activities and relay games for both kids and staff, enjoyed Chapel, classes, staff meeting, and free time where we could get to know everyone better.
Also, we met with the men at Kipsongo slums to encourage them to be spiritual leaders in their families.
It is so uplifting to see the progress the kids are making, whether it is singing in the choir, saying a prayer in front of everyone, becoming motivated to study and make good grades on exams, welcoming the many new kids that are able to come to the farm, and generally, growing in spiritual maturity.
Thank you Cheri Thompson-Neese for dedicating 25 years to serving God by changing lives through Challenge Farm.
