With the winter weather approaching in Jersey, some of you might be wondering how we’ll be able to dribble races in the cold weather and potential snow. How will people be able to hear about our desire to help children orphaned by AIDS and living in poverty worldwide with snow on the streets of New York City?! We can’t dribble in that kind of weather!
So what do we do? Rest assured! We have an answer: Orlando, Florida. Orlando is where DribbleTheWorld’s newest face, Morgan Cook will be dribbling in the Reindeer Run 5k on December 12, 2009.
How Morgan got involved with us is pretty sweet. As soon as Morgan found out about our vision, she wanted in on it! Morgan is friends with one of Occh’s friends from high school (who lives in Orlando now), and found out about DribbleTheWorld through her – thanks for telling Morgan about us Regina! Morgan emailed me before I dribbled the Half, and we’ve been in contact since then. Morgan has been so encouraging to DribbleTheWorld with her constant desire to pray for us. She is truly a prayer warrior and is so passionate about sharing the Gospel with as many people as possible and helping people less fortunate than herself.
Morgan will be dribbling for two causes:
- Bethesda Outreach – Their mission is to encourage and assist local churches in meeting the needs of orphan children, that they may become disciples of Christ.
- Society of St. Andrews – Their main goal is to: Glean America’s Fields to Feed America’s Hungry. For the past 30 years, Society of St. Andrews has been hard at work to end hunger.
36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
To me, it is simply amazing to see how the Lord is bringing people together to serve Him. We’ve been able to make connections with people who we don’t even know yet and they too, are passionate about helping people. The Lord has blessed us with connections in non-profit organizations and new faces around the country.
As Morgan so graciously does for us, I ask that you pray for her as she continues to train for dribbling the Reindeer Run on 12/12. Pray that she would be bold in sharing her faith with those around her as she runs and that she would keep her eyes fixed on the Lord throughout this part of her journey in following Christ.
