Free Them 5K

On Saturday we met up with some of our small group to participate in World Concern’s Free Them 5K, helping build awareness of the worldwide problem with human trafficking.

This year the participants numbered over 2000.

Our son’s company was a large contributor and had a tent on campus with a giveaway. We were sad that Josh could not participate in person this year because of a recreational soccer injury he received earlier in the week that has had him home having to stay off his feet.

Another successful 5K/10K and hopefully our DIL Laura will have a more restful week now that this major responsibility is complete. After the walk Dear and I stopped by Chipotle to order some takeout food to deliver to our injured son and a meal for our DIL to enjoy once she got home from all her responsibilities at the 5K.

Today we are back in a rainy pattern here in the Pacific Northwest. It was fun to get phone calls from my kids one after another today to wish me a Happy Mother’s Day. Flowers showed up at my door today, too.

On another note I got a lead on a high school kid who is trying to earn money for a mission trip so I might get some help with the yard work. I’m happy to pay well for someone earning money for missions. I only have 3 things on my calendar this week…woohoo. How about you?

  1. Looks like you had a lovely day for your walk. I love supporting kids raising money for missions, if they’re willing to work for it I’m happy to hire them.

  2. What a great support to help those who are in such need. I hope Josh is healing from his injury and that Laura can get some much needed rest this week too. How neat that you could join together as a family for this great cause. Have a good week….and sip tea as you watch your missionary out the window. I know you will send him home with both funds and prayer.

  3. That is certainly a great cause to lend support to. I hope your son recovers quickly. So glad your Mother’s Day was filled with phone calls and flowers. Flowers showed up at my door too; it does a mother’s heart good!
