2013 Silvanus House, Marathon Run, Fundraiser:Missionary Field Report: Liberia, West Africa


How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Isaiah 52:7

Greetings in the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ!! Excited about being alive today! Gods is so awesome, wonderful, kind and loving. I want to invite you to an exciting opportunity to support and encourage a portion of the youth of Liberia ages 15-24 who make up 68% of the population in Liberia.

Silvanus International Ministries, Inc. will provide new and exciting opportunities for learning in Whein Town, Bernards Farm Community. With an estimated 20 schools in the area, not to be overwhelmed, we will service up to 40 adults, two literacy classes one morning, one evening. 50 students from area schools will be invited to participate in our program..

We have done this! Our after school program in Bardnersville community was highly successful, with two students receiving a double promotion from grade 5 to grade 7.

A New Start

Helps us to open our new location. In 2003, I ran the Chicago LaSalle Marathon in 5:45. In 2011 I ran the Liberia inaugural Marathon in 5:00. This is Liberia’s second marathon race.

The Challenge

I give myself the double challenge to finish a marathon again and to do so for the Silvanus House by raising $1 for each kilometer, total kilometers in race 42195.


I pledge to run, this year in the spirit of “Equipping Oe generation for The Next” in the Liberia Marathon, the number of miles for which $1 was given, without exceeding the distance of 42,195 kilometers.


Help me to complete this marathon by buying a few kilometers. Don’t forget your friends, co-workers and neighbors ask them to pledge also.
