On September 30, 2013, I rode 25 kilometers on my bike. Together with my family, I cycled down the Clarence bike path. It was a beautiful day, and the weather was warm. We completed the 25km in just under two hours! It was wonderful to have such a nice ride, especially remembering last year's rainy one. (read about that one here - Cycle4Compassion: "Brake" the cycle of poverty: But we kept on...The Ride 2012)
At the end of my ride, I totaled the donations that you and many other sponsors gave to help children in poverty. It amounted to a grand total of $590.90! That is almost $100 more than was raised last year!
I cannot ever thank you enough or express how grateful I am for you and your support!
One hundred percent of the donations was given to Compassion International. Specifically, this will provide Eduardito with the many things he needs to grow and develop. Through the Compassion project where he lives in El Salvador, he receives Bible teaching, schooling, recreational activities, medical check-ups, and instruction in poultry farming. Eduardito is being educated in a way that will release him from poverty. I am very excited about that.
Your support has reminded me that together we really can change the world! Throughout the year as I receive updates from Eduardito, I will always remember you. After all, it is because of your selfless act that Eduardito is given the chance to learn and grow in a place where he is loved.
I am thrilled that, together, we can help release children from poverty in Jesus' name! Every dollar counts, especially to a child in need. Your prayers made it all possible.
