Adam Monaghan (Crossroads Friends Church Youth Pastor, Wichita, KS, at right in photo) and Allen Smelser (Stanwood Friends Church, McLouth, KS, at left) will run 100 miles, from Wichita to Haviland, Kansas, on November 7th to raise, they hope, at least $10,000 to support EFC-MAYM's missions scholarship fund through $1/mile contributions from one hundred individuals - $100 x 100 people = $10,000.
EFC-MAYM offers scholarships to missions students who are responding to a “call” to missions and who intend to serve in the context of the Evangelical Friends Church through Evangelical Friends Mission. The Scholarship fund first began in 2005 and is supervised and granted by the EFM-Mid America Missions Mobilizers Team.
If you'd like to be one of the 100 supporters to give $100 dollars, you can make your tax-deductible donation by writing a check to “EFC-MAYM”, memo: “Run for Missions” and send it to the Friends Ministry Center, 2018 Maple, Wichita, KS 67213 by November 15th.
The run will begin on Friday morning, November 7th, 2008 at 6:00 am. Smelser and Monaghan hope to make it to Haviland by very early Saturday morning, running country roads from the Friends Ministry Center in Wichita to the Barclay College campus in Haviland. More details will be announced later, including details on how other runners can join this duo out on the road for a few miles!
As of August 1st, 54 names have pledged a total of $5,400. Will you please consider giving to “Run for Missions”? Please contact Adam Monaghan at the Friends Ministry Center 316-267-0391 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
