Deciding To Make A Difference
Over this past summer, the White family decided that they wanted to do something that would make a difference in many African lives. So they decided to hike the entire 486 miles of the Colorado Trail to create awareness and raise funds for clean water. So far, they have generated a little over $33,000 to drill clean water wells. The funds will be shared between Ghana West Africa Missions (GWAM) and Healing Hands International (HHI) to be used in Africa’s specific projects.
The idea started—back in the Spring of this year—when the whole family collected fresh spring water in Colorado’s mountains where they currently live. A couple of years ago, Andy and Lindsey (wife) moved their family from North Alabama to Gunnison, CO, to work with the Gunnison church of Christ. During that family outing, they decided to give their journey to a cause bigger than themselves.
Give Your Journey
They called it “Give Your Journey,” and the idea was to encourage others to do the same. (e.g., hiking, walking, biking, running, paddling, etc. for a cause). Even though Andy and Silas did the hiking, Andy’s wife, Lindsey, and daughters, Sipsey and Cypress, cheered them on along the trail as a support team. Beginning in early July, Andy and Silas hiked the trail in approximately one month. The pictures inside this newsletter help to tell their story of service and faith.
