the journey of a lifetime for maternal health




“There is meaning in every journey that is unknown to the traveler.” 



Barry has less than 15 miles to go to complete his 315 mile 12 day journey across the island of Haiti. He will finish the last of the 12 marathons (26.2 miles) before most of us have lunch today. Every day for two weeks he has pushed himself to do things 99.9999999999% of us will never do. His goal? To build a new maternity center in order for Heartline Ministries to serve a larger number of pregnant women in Port au Prince.  

Extreme dedication, extreme love, extreme moxie.  I am inspired by all of it. 

To give to that fund: www.runforlifehaiti.org

Wow! The mental and physical fortitude required for such a feat is incredible. Praying the maternity center becomes a reality for the women of Haiti.
