We made it!

The Enduring Voices team is tired, sore, beat up and bruised, but unbroken and grateful.  We are grateful we had physical and emotional strength for the journey, for the beauty of “the least of these” who we met as we ran, for the mutual help given and friendships developed among team members (common suffering will do that!) and for creation’s natural beauty that welcomed us along the way.

In all, Enduring Voices 2016 was a 101 mile course starting out in the Highlands of Vietnam running toward the East Sea.  The team ran/walked for 22 hours over the three days and experienced over 20,000 feet of elevation change–up down a hill– again and again.

We finished–appropriately–at a school.  Several hundred greeted us.  Click here to see us with the children when we finished the  run.  Don’t miss their smiling faces!  That made it all worthwhile!
