Car Wash and Yard Sale Results!

This past Saturday, we had another car wash and yard sale.

This one wasn't as big as the other one, and wasn't as widely promoted, but that didn't stop God from working.

When all was said and done, we sold a lot of stuff, washed 52 cars, and made over $1,000 for the ministry in Haiti!

Please pray as some of the members of our team make the final preparations for their trip to Haiti. They will be gone July 5-9.

Making an Impact

Well, after a super long weekend (which I shouldn't even be complaining about because I didn't run), and it seemed an even longer day today which I know wasn't my best day, and I'm sure most of you share my sentiment, I came home to an email from another runner who is a complete stranger to us who said that he saw our signs and verses that we left up in the forest and that he was so thankful for what they said. He mentioned that despite the fog and darkness of his last few laps, our signs meant a lot to him and he couldn't have finished the race without God's help. I emailed him back and gave him a little more background of why we ran, but that email really just made my day to know that other people noticed and we were able to be a spiritual impact on someone even when we weren't even there! That just confirmed everything we did this year and reminded me why we were there. Thanks to Norm who made those signs and came up with the idea.

I hope everyone is feeling a bit better. It was an amazing weekend and year and I am proud to be a part of the team. God is sooooo good! You all mean a lot to me and thank you for pushing me and changing my life this year.

Car Wash and Yard Sale/Bake Sale for Haiti THIS SATURDAY!

This Saturday, May 21, the 100-Mile Mission Team and the people of New Testament Baptist Church are holding a car wash and yard/bake sale to help the children in Haiti.

Rather than set prices for the car wash or yard/bake sales, we've decided to do it on a donation basis, letting you decide how much you want to pay for an item, and what you will do to support the children in Haiti.

The event will be held at New Testament Baptist Church, located at 21 Jameston Avenue. (click map for larger size)

Hope to see you there!

March 26th

Good run but tough course. It was -10c at the start of the run, a little crisp for sure. It was our longest group run so far at 1hr50min. Everyone did very well and the hard training is just starting. Look out Martin's Rd. Hill !!! Thanks Wyatt's for an excellent breakfast. Peter

March 19th

Excellent run again this Saturday morning. It was a little early for everyone but we survived. We ran at 7:00am so we were done in time for an event our church was hosting at 10:00am. We ran on the Rail Trail starting at Rymal and Dartnell Rd. We ran for 1:40 and everyone did very well. We had a good group out with Beracha , Caleb, Abbey, Hannah, Tim, Levi and I covering over 100k combined. Mrs. Tyrrell came out and support us and that was very much appreciated. Thanks every one for your support and efforts. - Peter

March 12th run

Good training run this morning. Caleb, Beracha, Levi, Tim and I did a 90 min. out and back run on a local trail. We covered about 16km each. It was brisk this morning at about freezing but it was good to run on a relatively clear trail. Training was fun but breakfast after was even better. Mrs. McClain had quite the spread this morning. Thank you for your hospitality McClain's!

Update from Haiti- Jan/Feb

Dear Brethren in the Lord,

Praising the Lord for HE hath done mighty works in the year 2010. Praying and hoping to have another blissful year 2011.

In spite of many troubles in the year 2010, the Lord showed us HIS power and loving kindness. He preserved us from earthquake, cholera epidemic and from human made disaster in the country. Infact, the circumstances were gateways for us to share more gospel. Several thousands got saved thru our services and ministries. Many backslidden Christians return to the Lord. The attendance increased and many converts followed the water baptism. Of course, your faithful prayers and support were big factors of the success. Thank you very much and may you continue partnering with us this year 2011.

The year 2011, we set up a yearly program to boost the ministries. The month of January our theme is about Global Mission. We encourage our people to be strong in the Lord and help us to build a solid church numerically and financially. The whole month was blessed tremendously with high attendance and the giving increased. The highlight was getting more people to get involve in faith promise giving for local and foreign mission. The result was wonderful. We have enough to support our mission commitment. Thank God.

February, 6-8, we had a mission conference, about 150 Pastors, pastors wives, Bible students and church leaders attended. Once again, we were challenged to response the great commission of winning the whole world to Christ. The activities refreshed us , then reactivated our momentum to be on fire for God’s service. Every night we had services with 70 first time visitors and 13 got saved.

It has been over a month since we had a Bible study at the Philippines Contingent Camp. Some officers attended regularly every Sunday afternoon. So far, 3 soldiers received Christ as their personal Savior. The Bible study helps strengthen the soldiers to stand morally and spiritually. Bro. Boy Divinagracia helped us to handle this Bible study. Praise God.

Again, whatever we accomplished and won souls from the past year, you and your church people were a part. Thank you very much and lets continue holding the rope for the success of God’s business whom He entrusted to us here on earth.

Your co-laborer in the Lord,

Bro. Leny and Family

Running Log- Glen Cuthbert

Glen Cuthbert

Date: Saturday, February 12, 2011

Location: Rodney, Ontario

Duration: 32:00

Distance: 5 km

We were at Camp YES for a weekend of snow camp. There were enough of us from the team that we decided to have a group run. It was about -2, much better than the -20 that it had been earlier in the weekend. I was sore from the games and activities of camp. My right leg was cramped for most of it, and still is, so I'm limping pretty bad right now. If it doesn't clear up soon, I'll go get it checked out. We were joined by Mr. John Vink from Harvester's Baptist Church. I had hoped that we would see some campers out running with us, but I think the 6:30 am start time turned them off a bit. It was cool to be out in the country and be able to run on the road. Not too much snow, it was packed down quite a bit.

Let it Snow!

Snow- some people love it, some people hate it. Most of all, though, it's a source of income. As I write this post, I just got paid by my neighbour for shoveling his driveway. Normally, that money would be spent on myself, but I, like several other guys on the 100-Mile Mission team have committed my shoveling money to help kids in Haiti who have never seen snow. I'm doing what I can with what I have- will you?

Nurses Care - Why not Christians?

My name is Beracha and I'm on the 100-Mile team. I'm 21 years old and I currently am graduating from McMaster University's nursing program in April of 2011. I spent the day at a national nursing conference held here in Hamilton. I had such a wonderful time attending sessions being inspired, instructed, hearing from experienced nurses and meeting new nurses (Christians too). It was so exciting to watch over 800 people joining together to care for people. These men and women are passionate about caring, and passionate about peoples' lives. Each and every nurse there paid almost 200 dollars just to spend 3-4 days learning about becoming a better nurse, how to listen to people better and to learn about the current needs of our communities. These nurses willingly attended this conference - and willingly paid the money. It breaks my heart to think about the number of Christians we are trying to twist their arm or convince them to support us as we try to help those in need. This nursing conference filled up very soon after registration opened. I wish we could say that we were overwhelmed by peoples' participation in giving to the work of missions. Christ gave himself for us, yet we can't give a little money or a little time to love others? I had a lovely inspiring day, but it broke my heart to consider the reality that there aren't huge numbers of Christians joining together, sacrificing time and money to care for others. What's wrong with that picture? We've been given so much.

New Years 5k and Pancake Brunch

On New Years Day, the 100-Mile Mission team served a pancake brunch and ran a 5k to raise awareness for our cause. God blessed greatly, and we raised nearly $600 for the children in Haiti.
It was about 6 degrees and raining, but we perservered through it and had a great run.
Thanks to all those that participated!
