04 Mar Relay is moving – North, South, East, West!
The A-Cross America Relay is out of the gates and moving from the North, South, East and West, All In Christ for Pro-Life! Between now and Apr 9th finish, for all of your training in LIFE Runners jersey, be sure to register for Relay legs, that can be completed remotely in your own neighborhood. Last year, with great teamwork, we covered 100% of the A-Cross America Relay legs (5,544 miles). Check out the live progress map, great media coverage and lots of awesome Facebook photos/videos.
We now have 5,330 teammates in 29 nations who carry the “REMEMBER The Unborn – Jer 1:5” message into the world, an encouraging sign to impact hearts and minds for saving lives. The Relay registration donations fuel our Team’s mission growth. Here are a few reasons why LIFE Runners is a worthy organization for your monthly donations, just some of the ways that you can sow into our life-saving ministry.
YOUTH: The youth are our future and teaching them early the value of human life protects future generations from abortion. When school chapters and youth groups want to join the fight for LIFE we often donate jerseys as well as other gear and banners. The powerful bold message “REMEMBER The Unborn, Jer 1:5” is needed among the youth. A $100 donation will ensure that 10 youth LIFE Runners are outfitted with gear!
OVERSEAS MISSIONS: We currently have an active mission arm of LIFE Runners in the South Pacific reaching 3rd world Island nations. Abortion rates are significantly higher in developing countries. The “REMEMBER The Unborn, Jer 1:5” message is a beacon of hope and healing in countries where the topic of abortion is taboo and rarely uttered. The South Pacific team brings fetal models and fetal development pamphlets to show mothers because ultrasound is not readily available. They educate on the importance of purity and how to talk to the youth about sex from a Biblical point of view. They bring healing to the women who have aborted and have carried their secret shame with no outlet. We are teaching these LIFE Runners through the Sidewalk Advocacy for Life curriculum and how to defend the Unborn through Stand to Reasons “Making Abortion Unthinkable” curriculum. Many of these new LIFE Runners cannot afford a jersey.
BILLBOARDS: Thanks to the A.J. Schwartze grant we were able to rent a billboard in Missouri for displaying “REMEMBER The Unborn – Jer 1:5” message, impacting hearts and minds for saving lives. We pray for more funds to come so that we can put up billboards on busy roadways in other states.
CHAPTERS: We have 99 LIFE Runners chapters around the world. When a new chapter is formed they are now given a start up package of a mix of gear and a flag, which helps them grow quickly.
SIGNS: LIFE Runners attend the Walk for Life West Coast and DC March for Life to help raise awareness with signs and gear. We would love to print “REMEMBER The Unborn – Jer 1:5” signs for many more to carry and are praying for a donation to cover this need for 2018.
PHONE APP: LIFE Runners is developing a phone App to log miles and time in “REMEMBER The Unborn – Jer 1:5” jersey – a friendly competition to motivate us to wear our witness more often. Every second and every step matter.
Together we can make an even bigger impact on hearts and minds for saving lives. Consider not only your time and talent in your gear, but also team up financially and sow into our Team ministry!
