|Adrie, Henk and Krijn|
It's January again, the month of our most exciting fundraiser of the year! On Tuesday, January 28 the Traveling Light skating team is planning to skate the 200 km tour on the Weissensee in Austria again.
Krijn Donk (Papendrecht), Henk Swijnenburg (Bleskensgraaf) and Adrie Swijnenburg (support & care) want to raise money for Teen Challenge Armenia and well for the renovation of a second men's center.
|Gagik & Lusine|
Gagik and Lusine Mkrtchyan are the directors of Teen Challenge in Armenia. They run a center where men with drugs and alcohol addictions have a chance to start a new life. (We supported them back in 2017 (read here) with a gift for the daily operations of the center.)
|Much work to be done!|
The center is actually always full and last year they started a second center in an old house on a large piece of farmland. The acreage that belongs to the farm makes it a good location for a rehab center, animals can be kept and crops can be grown.
The farm in Yerevan is very primitive, there is no running water, electricity or sanitary provisions. However, the need is so big that several men are already living and working there, some of them are not that young anymore.
|The farm offers many opportunities for work/therapy|
A substantial amount is needed to renovate the house and outbuildings. We believe that with your help it can become a beautiful center where many men can find a safe place to live and work and ... to have an encounter with God!
You can sponsor Krijn and Henk as a team or individually:
- with a donation per kilometer,
- with a donation to finish,
- with a general donation, or
- with a donation according to your own idea (for example for breaking a pr or last year's time result)
👉If you decide to participate, please send an e-mail with your pledge and encouraging words to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course, you can send your donation right now if you like 😁St. Traveling Light, Papendrecht, IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275, BIC: RABONL2U.
What do you think, will personal records be broken?
We are looking forward again to your heart-warming reactions and we wish the skating team lots of success and perseverance.
