I am stepping Over The Edge for Forward Edge...

140 feet over to be exact!!! That's right. On August 21st, I'll be rappelling 10 stories down the side of a building in Portland, Oregon. Why would a 72-year-old man want to do this? Because he cares deeply about the thousands of children who are blessed every year through the ministry of Forward Edge, and wants to see thousands more experience God's transforming love, too.

I'm committed to raise at least $30,000. These funds will be used to free more children from extreme poverty in some of the world's poorest countries. In turn, I get to rappel down the beautiful Portland Astoria Apartment Building in the heart of downtown Portland.

Why $30,000? Because through Forward Edge, $30,000 can provide things like:

  • 30,000 nutritious meals for hungry children
  • one year of holistic care for 48 children in Mexico, Cuba, Haiti, Kenya and Uganda
  • safe drinking water for 480 families
  • a college education for 45 young adults  

If $30,000 can do these things, just think what we can do if we raised more (our total goal is $250,000)!

Will you sponsor me to go Over The Edge with Forward Edge on August 21st? A gift of any amount will really help. I believe passionately in the mission of Forward Edge -- that children have opportunities to discover their true worth and pursue God's extraordinary purpose for their lives. Together, let's create brighter futures for children in desperate need!!!
