Roughly half of Haitians are illiterate, especially in rural areas like the Northwest.Â Â Of the fewÂ children who attend school, mostÂ attend private schools.Â Haitiâ€™s per capita GDP is $480 (US) a year, and school fees are prohibitively expensive at an estimated $70 â€“ $80 dollars a year per child.Â Â NWHCM operates 12 primary schools in the northwest.Â They have appoximately 2,000 students and feed them once a day.Â As I have said before, part of the mission workÂ is about helping a generation help themselves.Â Much is going on and there is much to do.Â Think about booking a trip to see for yourself and be prepared to dive in and get a good dose of “I can really help make a difference”.Â Yes, you can help.Â There are many ways.Â I am sure the if you ask you will hear from the full time missionaries, go where you are being led by the Spirit and just go to work.Â For today, a penny or two and telling a friend to pledge, will do.
Did not doing anything yesterday.Â Â However, did get to a hot whirlpool for my legs.Â TookÂ the road bike off the inside rack so I canÂ start riding it outside as it starts to turn really nice.Â If you are up on the blog, you know I did that with the mountain bike this past weekend.Â Nice to go somewhere rather that the rack so I am all set.Â Starting to pick up some volunteers to run with me.Â TheyÂ are a lot faster and don’t really know howÂ slow I go but I’ll enjoy the company till they take off.Â Can always pop in the ipod and listen toÂ Casting Crowns or DC Talk.Â Â They have great running music.Â Plan to run 4miles tomight at a 10:30 pace.
We're here to raise $100,000 for Haiti. Contribute to us and help provide clean water, medical care and food for the people of Haiti, still struggling more than a year after the earthquake. Join THREE Marks and pledge to support them as they conquer 13.1 miles each running the OneAmerica Mini Marathon.
