Wilkerson Here: Well the official results have been posted. As for me, my goal to fulfill the dollars pledged was to pass at least 15,000 people and I barely made it at 15,373. I can tell you that in the last mile, just when I assumed I had the strength to kick it in and have a great finish, I had a cramp in my hamstring muscle. I was ready to count on my body to respond and it was not in the cards. I did pray. Expressed to the Lord that this would have to be Him. I was reminded of His suffering and how little and insignificant my pain was at the moment. I cannot tell you that it stopped, it didn’t. I can tell you that as the Lord does in all cases, He provided. Today I was reminded that He provides not me. I needed to pass 15,000. I did; He provided. I didn’t need to fly to the finish and have a big finish I could brag about, I just needed to pass 15,000. He provided. I am reminded of much scripture where God provided, not to mention that God himself provided for us all in the person of Jesus, once and for all. I honor and praise Him for His grace and provision for His children.
The other two Marks ran faster than fast. Mark Graham passed 29,334 and Mark Mullelly passed 30,238. They are great. Bet you are glad you backed the slow old guy. Both Marks love the Lord and the people of Haiti. They are fine young men of faith with wives of faith.
Lord, great is your name. We exalt you above all and ask that all of our actions glorify your name. Forgive our sinful nature and replace it with yours by dwelling in us by the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus the Christ gave his life as a ransom for ours and we accept him as our Lord and Savior. We pray for the Haitian people and ask your support and favor for Northwest Haiti Christian Mission. Guide their feet and thoughts in Your Name. All of this we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen
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.
