Run in Long Beach for Clean Water in Africa!

Run in Long Beach for Clean Water in Africa!

2015-TeamWorldVisionLB

Team World Vision runs for clean water & fullness of life for children in Africa.

In Africa they say, “Water is Life.” About 724 million people in the world lack access to safe drinking water. Children and women often walk five to ten miles a day to gather water that isn’t even safe to drink; water that can make them sick. More children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation than almost any other cause – more than AIDS and malaria combined.

Team World Vision empowers people to experience radical life transformation through endurance races, community advocacy, and social giving for the sake of clean water in Africa. We’ve been invited to run with Team World Vision right here in Long Beach!

You can HELP from HERE!

We have the opportunity to partner with Team World Vision to bless others with clean water!  We have been offered the invitation to run a half or full Long Beach marathon for children in Africa–Uganda in particular!

INFORMATIONAL MEETING: Sunday May 3 after Sunday Worship (noon?)  A Team World Vision representative will be with us for the morning service and for lunch!

Our Mission
As the people of God known as the Los Altos Grace Brethren Church our mission is to share the Good News about Jesus with people from all walks of life, teaching those who believe to pattern their lives after the life of Christ by gathering them into communities that foster an atmosphere of togetherness and commonality in which each individual enjoys deep, growing, abiding relationships with God and others. As we touch lives -- God changes the world!
