This morning I ran 5+ miles. It was a great time of prayer and thinking of the people in Sierra Leone and being concerned that with #COVID-19 putting people out of work will raising money for more wells be put at risk. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun
The day ended with me deactivating my Facebook account, with no real intent on returning, out of frustration with people that call themselves Christ followers, people that I once called friends. Their behavior towards the pandemic makes them appear like they have little regard for human life, or caring about others more than themselves.
I think what’s even worse than jumping the Facebook ship is the fact that a lot of these people are also connected with my running group, and I’m not sure I can run with them any longer. I will still keep running on my own as I can’t imagine giving up on the people of Sierra Leone, especially since I have a personal connection with many there from my trip there in 2018. I’ll be setting up a new fundraiser page soon for this year. To date I have about $700 that has been set aside to match all gifts that are given to my account.
