As many of you already know, my family has grown through the blessing of adoption as 3 of our 5 children were adopted from China.  Through this God has placed a burden in our hearts to care for the orphan and those needing special care,  As such, over the past several years my family and I have supported the work of Orphan Voice, a Christian orphan-relief organization providing spiritual, physical and emotional support to impoverished orphans, at-risk and special needs children in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. I encourage you to checkout their website, orphanvoice.org to learn about the amazing work they are doing - which recently my 2 daughters and I got to experience in person during a trip to Da Nang in July 2016 as part of an Orphan Voice Friendhip Team.  We were especially amazed at the amount of work being done to help special needs children in th area.

Unfortunately, as tourism has grown in Vietnam, so has the pain being inflicted on the children who fall victim to trafficking.  In 2015, Enduring Voices 100 was born when 1 man with a love of endurance running ran 100 miles in Vietnam over 2 days to raise areness and funds to help combat this evil of human trafficking.  This year, 2016, we have expanded Enduring Voices so that more can participate.  In Vietnam, from October 4-6, particpants will run the 100 miles over 3 days as individuals or relay teams. Unfortunately I can't travel to Vietnam during that time - so we created a simul-run.   I can't run 100 miles in 3 days so I am running 100 consecutive days at an average of at least 3 miles a day.  In the last 50 days as of September 27th I've run 232 miles (that's an average of 4.62 miles a day)   I hope to continue for 50 more days!  Please consider pledging a gift on my page to support the Enduring Voices campaign and Orphan Voice's work in Vietnam.  Thank you, and bless you!
