Howard & Elizabeth - On Tour

On the 13th February Howard & Elizabeth Reece-Smith will begin a 1,500 mile cycle ride from Nairobi in Kenya to Serenje in Zambia, to raise the money to equip an operating theatre in Serenje hospital. You can watch a short video of them talking about the motivation behind the trip here.

At the outset of our partnership in Serenje our heart was always not just to link our church with churches in Serenje, but to link our community with their community. That has happened in a very real way with schools links. What Howard and Elizabeth are doing is just another expression of that desire, and I personally am very excited about it, and the change it will make in the lives of people out there. They are looking to raise about £25,000, with any money over and above what is needed to set up the operating theatre going to Project 125, the Girl's Dormitory project.

You can sponsor Howard and Elizabeth here. You can follow their progress on their twitter feed, although for those not on twitter I'll post their key updates to my blog and Facebook as well.

It makes me feel very unfit! Must get on with the half marathon training.
