Missionary Ventures 5k run 2011

Missionary Ventures 5K 2011

I was invited by Jeff and Miranda Lessie to snap photos at Gadsdon park here in Tampa for the Missionary Ventures 5k fun run. I have been on a couple short term mission trips through www.mvi.org and was a pleasure to serve here on the home front. Jeff and Miranda both attend South Tampa Fellowship as I do and know how to get things done!

Missionary Ventures 5K 2011

Greetings, we are Jeff and  Miranda Lessie.  We invite you to join us at
our 5K Run/Walk to support  Global Missions to be held on May 21 at 8:30 AM at
Gadsden Park, 6901 S.  MacDill Ave., Tampa, FL.  
We normally lead an annual  mission trip to a 3rd world country to bring
medical and spiritual  help to those that are less fortunate.  This year we
are unable to go so  instead we are hosting a 5K Run/Walk to raise money for
Missionary Ventures  International (MVI).  MVI is a non-profit organization
that supports  missionaries in just about every country around the world.  We
go on  missions to support these missionaries who give their lives to show
Christ’s  love and share the Good News in remote areas.
