Run for Missions

Let’s raise money for Friends Missions Scholarships! Allen and I will run 100 miles on November 7th. You donate $1/mile?

EFC-MAYM is pleased to offer scholarships to missions students. The Scholarship fund first began in 2005 and is supervised and granted by the EFM-Mid America Missions Mobilizers. The Board’s desire is to give affirmation and support to Friends students who are responding to a “call” to missions, and who intend to serve in the context of the Friends Church. The EFC-MAYM Missions Scholarship is for Friends Church College and Graduate students studying for missions intending to serve in the Friends Church.

In order to raise funds for this Scholarship, the EFM-Mid America Missions Mobilizers have sponsored a “Run For Missions”. Adam Monaghan (Crossroads Friends Church Youth Pastor, Wichita, KS) and Allen Smelser (Stanwood Friends Church, McLouth, KS) will run 100 miles, from Wichita to Haviland, KS! We hope to raise at least $10,000 to support this scholarship fund. We are looking for at least 100 supporters to give $100 dollars ($1 per mile) by November 15th. Will you be one of them?

The run will begin on Friday morning, November 7th, 2008 at 6:00 am. We hope to make it to Haviland by very early Saturday morning, running country roads from Wichita (Friends Ministry Center, 2018 Maple) to Haviland (Barclay College campus, 607 N. Kingman). More details will be announced later, including the opportunity for you to join us out on the road for a few miles or as much as you want!

As of August 1st, 54 names have pledged a total of $5,400. Will you please consider giving to “Run for Missions”? Please contact Adam Monaghan at the Friends Ministry Center 316-267-0391

You can make your tax-deductible donation by writing a check to “EFC-MAYM”, memo: “Run for Missions”; send to 2018 Maple, Wichita, KS 67213 by November 15th.
