Garth Hill College are my Heroes

Garth Hill College are amazing! On Friday 17 June they're going to have a "Walk to School" day to support Project 125, our project to build a dormitory for 100 secondary school girls in Serenje in Zambia. 

Please take a moment to read this message from the Principal, Keith Grainger. I just love the way Keith has got hold of the heart behind the project, and is personally embracing it by walking to school on the 17th June - a 22 mile round trip from Lower Earley (I felt it was the least I could do to offer to join him, we're going to be leaving at 4.30am to get to school on time!). 

When we first dreamt of the HIV/AIDS project we are involved with in Serenje in Zambia, part of our vision was that we wouldn't just be linking our church with churches in Serenje, but that we would link our community with the community of Serenje. I love the way that is happening more and more.

If you want to get involved in Project 125 then Matt Ranger and a bunch of friends are arranging a sponsored 125 mile cycle ride on the 28th May (I'll blog more about this next week). Our LIFE young people have also been raising money since last September. If you want to give to Project 125 you can do it here.

Simon.
