A Life Well Run
The Zihlmann family with friends Will Monterroza and Edgar Hernandez recently ran the Run or Dye Ottawa 5k race. The run is solely for the sake of the fun of running with the community, but the Zihlmanns, Will, and Edgar brought it a step further by running to raise funds for Jesus Wells in South Asia with a myGFA campaign. These wells will ultimately bring people clean drinking water and opportunities for GFA pastors to share the joyful gospel of Jesus with local people.
The family originally had a seemingly ambitious goal of three Jesus Wells for $3000, but their friends, families, and supporters raised 173% of that goal: $5175! That’s five Jesus Wells, wow!
On behalf of those who will be receiving the wells, thank you to Martin, Andrea, Todd, Jakob, Will, and Edgar for running, and to everyone who supported them.
