In the summer Dawn Brierley and her sister Jill decided to undertake a 31 mile charity cycle ride for Mission possible from Larne to Cushendun. They asked Dawn’s 13 year old son Jack to accompany them.
Jack suggested that any sponsorship money raised be given to Mission Possible to raise funds for a new residential home for little girls in Bogota, Colombia who are at risk of being abandoned on the streets where they would be subject to a life of begging, hunger and all sorts of evil abuse.
When asked why he decided on Mission Possible, Jack replied that he was aware of the fantastic work being done in Bogota.
He is a member of Woodburn Presbyterian Church in Carrickfergus, where he heard a presentation of the work from Joe and Sadie Law. Jack also attends the Bible Class and Youth Fellowship in Woodburn.
He was particularly inspired by the photograph of the young boy at the side of the disused sewer – it impacted him greatly and encouraged him to do all he could to help prevent other boys and girls from ending up in such a desperate situation.
God has blessed their efforts and the total amount raised from the Cycle Ride was a magnificent £845.
Mission Possible is so grateful to Dawn, Jill, Jack and all who sponsored them for their efforts and generosity in raising this amount of funding.
On behalf of the little girls in Bogota, we say a great big thank you.
