Running 5k for Adam House

Over the past year I have been serving with a ministry in Toronto called Adam House. They are a Christian refugee reception centre that serves newly arrived refugees in their first few months in Canada. They help refugees through what is often the most difficult time of their lives as they come with nothing and often without their family and loved ones, have to go through a long and complicated application process, and have to adjust to a completely new culture and language. I love this ministry because they welcome people of all races, nations and beliefs, and yet boldly share and live out through service the love and grace of Jesus Christ. Adam House is the first home and family for these people and has a huge impact on their lives. Because they are a Christian organization, they do not get a lot of government funding. One of their main fundraisers is through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. Will you consider supporting me as I run 5km on October 16th to raise funds for Adam House? If you want to know more about this ministry, just ask! I have so many great stories to share!
