Summit 4 Hope 2012 Update
A group of big-hearted, high-energy Heart for Africa volunteers
came up with a creative and exciting new way to raise funds for Project Canaan
in Swaziland. It started with the idea of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in
Tanzania, East Africa, and grew to include climbing Swaziland, Taiwan, Canada, and
four states in the United States.
The 2nd Annual Summit 4 HOPE event was a tremendous
success! Not only have all the
teams reached their summits safely thus far, but they also raised a tremendous
amount of money, and were able to pray corporately and globally for the orphans
and vulnerable children of Africa.
It is wonderful to see individuals from around the world come together
to support the people of Swaziland.
We still have one team to go! Team
Kenya will be summiting Mt. Kenya on August 14th, so please pray for their
success and safety as Robert Smucker climbs this highly technical
So far, the teams have collectively raised nearly $40,000.00! This will go a long way to support the various
and necessary water projects currently underway on Project Canaan.
Thank you Robert Smucker for having the original idea and for making this whole
thing happen. Thank you team
leaders James Liao and Francis Chou, Anthony Mutua, Bree Friedl and Jenny
Keeton, Bobby Ramjist, Laurie Wagner, Zack Swire, Wolfgang Buehler, Rona Nix,
and Howard Hodel, for doing such an amazing job recruiting, fundraising and
inspiring so many to be involved.
Thank you to our climbers, donors and prayer partners for your support
in this tremendous endeavor. Your desire, passion and support are
infectious, and have certainly brought HOPE to a nation in desperate need of it. Most importantly we give thanks to our
Lord and Savior for safety, protection, provision, love and for choosing us to
be a part of this great work.
