In July of 2017 a friend of mine invited me to see, for myself, the work that Christ Hope International (CHI) was doing with orphan care in South Africa. I was already on a mission trip in South Africa at the time and had a day off before heading on to Mozambique. I said yes, and while on the visit at the Jordan CarePoint located in Eden Park South Africa, I was blown away by the care and process that CHI brings their children through.
James 1:27 (NLT) – Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
When I consider the words of James (the half-brother of Jesus), I am impacted by the strong language he uses about our approach to helping those who cannot help themselves. When I started the strategic plan for launching by business, Health From The Inside Out, I committed to giving over 10% of every dollar I make to orphan care. Now, Christ Hope has invited me to help them with their RIDE FOR HOPE – S. AFRICA in April of 2020. The ride is both a fundraiser and an opportunity to bring awareness to the work CHI is doing with orphan care.
Can You Help Me?
I need your help. I need your help in several ways and maybe one of these will be personal to you. Here’s how you can help:
- Do you ride a bike or know someone who does? We want to bring 12 riders from the United States to complete the Ride For Hope. Each rider would be responsible to raise support for Christ Hope and be able to ride approximately 90 miles a day for 5 days.
- Can you support me financially? I too need to raise my support for the trip (about $5500). All donations are given to Christ Hope International and can be used as a tax deduction.
- Prayer. Please pray for the planning, protection and provision of everyone involved with this trip.
- Who Do You Know? Who do you know that I need to know; maybe they are a business person or a cyclist or a person who is compassionate to orphan care; would you be willing to introduce me to them?
Will You Commit?
Please email me ([email protected]) if you will commit to helping with Ride For Hope. I’ll send you more information and I’ll send you one of my Health From The Inside Out resources for free. Thank You.
