Going the distance for Haiti…
Serving Haiti is a marathon, not a sprint. And Servants for Haiti is in it for the long run. So is Lisa Clemetson.
Lisa is the adoptive mother of Roody, a current resident of Kingdom Kids Orphanage (KKO), one of our works in Haiti. As any good mother would, Lisa wants the very best for her son. But with Roody so far away, that’s a tough task. She and her husband Todd visit their son as often as possible, but that leaves long stretches of time when he is beyond their care. Her solution to the dilemma was to raise money so that SFH can hire another caregiver at KKO. And she’s found a very meaningful way to do it.
Lisa is training to run a marathon and is enlisting sponsors for her trek. As of this writing she’s only been at it for less than a week, but she’s already more than half way to her goal. With a recent promise of a matching gift up to $1200, that puts her way beyond it.
To learn more about Lisa and her marathon, go to her blog, “A Drop in the Ocean“. There you’ll hear from a lady who is walking her talk. More accurately, she’s running it.
Perhaps Lisa’s actions are prompting you to consider ways to raise funds and help Haiti in its marathon toward hope. Talk to us. We can give you ideas and practical help, such as setting up a payment system similar to what Lisa is doing.
