Welcome Carmelo!

We are pumped to have Carmelo on our running team! Carmelo has competed in the Ironman Triathalon and has been on a couple medical mission trips to the D.R. with G.O.! It will be a blessing and an honor to run with him on December 15th for the Hoover Dam 1/2 marathon. When you support him, you are supporting us and G.O. Ministries and the work being done in the D.R. and Haiti!

Welcome Mom!

This lady is running a MARATHON to support our work in the D.R. and Haiti! I am so proud of my mom for her dedication to supporting what God is doing through G.O.!  When you support my mom in her training or her race you will be partnering with us to redeem, renew and restore on the island of Hispaniola!

My mom is running the Hoover Dam Marathon December 15 with our team!

Way to G.O. Mom!!

Welcome Bianca!

Welcome Bianca Ferrari to our running team! Bianca served as short-term team member in the D.R. and Haiti with South Hills. She has such a big heart for kids and ministry in Haiti! She will be running the 7 miles Las Vegas downtown Glow Run on October 7th and possibly the Hoover Dam 1/2 Marathon on December 15th! By supporting Bianca in her training and runs you'll be supporting our work with G.O. Ministries in the Dominican Republic and Haiti!

Welcome Ashlee!

I am so thrilled that Ashlee Williams is joining our running team. She is a wonderful mommy of 4 kiddos! She is also part of our family- married to my cousin for over 5 years, yet somehow, I only met her for the first time last November! (I know!) I am so looking forward to training with Ashlee when I get back to Vegas in October. She'll be running the Hoover Dam 1/2 marathon with me on December 15, 2012!

Ashlee says, "I am so excited to run for his glory because i want to run for more than my own personal satisfacion. I am excited to push myself farther than i have ever gone before. i know that i can do anything through christ who gives me strength and i am excited to be able to use this as a testimony to that.  One year after giving birth to my fourth child i WILL complete a 1/2 marathon and all the Glory will be his! I cant wait!"

Thank you so much Ashlee to committing to run for His glory and help us raise funds for our Kingdom work. See you in October!

Raul's Race

We are so thrilled to have Raul running on our team! He's running the San Francisco Marathon July 29 for His glory and to raise funds for our mission work!

Raul says:
My motivation since I first started running in 2004 has been Hebrews 12:  
Therefore we also since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses (see Hebrews 11), let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the ross, despising the shame, and has sat down (after completing his work) at the right hand of the throne of God.

My running, is a metaphor for how I strive to live my life.  One step at a time, it's an endurance race & not a sprint.  It takes dedication, commitment, planning, and help from above. 
I am "Free To Run", and it is Christ who has set me Free.

We're on!

We are registering for the Las Vegas Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon and have begun our pre-training. We both took a significant break from running after our race in the Spring to fully focus on the ministry at hand. Now that the summer is over (and what a sweet summer it was!) we are ready to jump back into running and get our race on!

Alan's been running in the evenings and is running an average of 3 miles.

I just started running this past week and am averaging 2 mile runs. I will have to get back to 3 comfortably before starting training September 4... yeah, I have 1 week to get there.

We'll be keeping you guys posted on our running and of course we are using the run as a way to raise money for our ministry. We'll be posting more about that in the coming days!
