Juvenile Justice League - 5k Wild Walk

It's hard to believe that I am already approaching my next race! I'm really looking forward to this one, as it is for an organization dedicated to spreading the gospel and reaching the unsaved. I might also be looking forward to this event because,... well... I don't have to run. :) It's a WILD WALK at the Zoo.

About Miami Youth for Christ
From their website 

Mission

YFC reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to prayer and the Word of God. To have a passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.

How does YFC attain their mission? 

YFC has a program or a volunteer or an employee perfectly suited for EVERYONE! Seriously, I am amazed each Spring as I hear the testimonies of people (young and old) who have been impacted by YFC. The Lord has truly blessed that ministry, and I am honored to walk in their event.

JUVENILE JUSTICE LEAGUE
Last March, my husband and I were convicted to do more for Miami Youth for Christ. Every year we go to the fundraising banquet, give a donation and we might remember to pray for the ministry on a regular basis. ... You know how it goes right? 

Well. THIS year, Captain America and I decided that no matter what, we would participate in the Zoo Walk. Each year YFC hosts a Wild Walk through the Miami Zoo in order to raise money.  Captain America and I went with the whole Justice League theme because well... the man who introduced me to YFC has dedicated his whole life to sharing the Love of Christ with those who need it most (a.k.a. EVERYONE!) Every time I walk away from a conversation with this person, I am refreshed and encouraged to do more for Christ. I count myself blessed to know him.  So, for one of our Heroes, we will walk in support of  Youth for Christ and the Juvenile Justice program.  

How can I get involved? 

1) Pray.
  • Pray for the ministry of Youth for Christ. 

2) Join.
