There is a couple of great stories to be shared from the history of the S4J. We aim to share this as part of the S4J archive. We can look back and learn from that. Here is the first article posted on the “old” S4J blog.
Never despise the day of small beginnings!
6 March 2011
It started so small. Just a challenge by a colleague: let’s do the 2010 Comrades Marathon! By now, we’ve seen amazing things happening. Divine intervention over and over again. Partnering with heaven and one another. It’s grown into the Sudan4Jesus run. Expecting that this year a team of 25 runners will run the Comrades AND raise funds for the spread of the Gospel in Sudan.
Norman Johnson with Louise Jacobs at the Impact Radio Studios. Louise’ testimony was radio broadcasted on Impact Radio on 6 March 2011. Louise is a blind runner that joined the S4J in September 2010.
She did her first Comrades Marathon in 2011. Out of a team of 20 athletes, she came third! She left her running partner, Roald, behind at about 20 km in the race and completed the race more than one hour faster than him. He story IS one big miracle. This is just one many stories that makes the S4J journey so fascinating.
Louise quite a natural behind the microphone. To God be all the glory!
