My Sister Rocks // Equip World Relay

My sister Helena is doing some really amazingly cool!

Have you ever heard of Equip? Well, if not, why don’t you check it out? I’m not going to take the time to explain everything here, but here’s the synopsis: A large group of people are doing a walking relay from Atlanta, Georgia all the way down to Guatemala City, Guatemala to raise prayer support. Yes people, you read that right. It’s a couple thousand miles of walking.

My sister is doing the first nine or ten days of walking. Since they’re averaging 22 miles a day, that’s quite a bit of tread they’re burning!

Anyway, I thought I’d show you a snippet of the texts and pictures she’s sent us:

We’re way ahead of time. Finished our 15th mile taking a break.

We’re headed to the embassy now, there will be a couple TV stations and some other media there.

Thanks everyone!! I’m so happy to be (finally) at the hotel. We were delayed about an hour because of two different interviews. We’ll be on two tv channels tonight and in two or three papers tomorrow and Wednesday. I’m really enjoying chilling with ice on my knee. We treked over some crazy places without sidewalks. When we got to the end of the 22 miles they had blaring music and people holding signs and dancing – it was awesome!! (From the first day)

So after getting chased by dogs yesterday while walking solo they gave me my very own case of mace. Not sure how I’d forgotten that item.

You can see a movie of when they reach a hundred miles here. My sister is the one in the middle. As you can probably tell, they were rather excited about their milestone, and with good reason, too!

You can see more pics here.

You can track their progress here.

And you can find out how to join them, either by walking or by praying, here
