The Assemblies of God has a program for teenagers called Speed the Light. STL provides vehicles and equipment for US and foreign missionaries to help them in their ministries around the world. In fact, Jill’s brother, Peter, is actually driving an SUV in Mexico City provided by American youth – as are our good friends, the Zarns, in Sweden and soon Jill’s sister in Kazakhstan. My work is coordinating a half-marathon in Minneapolis on September 26th to raise money for Speed the Light. All youth pastors and leaders have been invited to participate and challenged to raise $1,000 in pledges for the event. It is called “All will drive”. The idea is that we will run so missionaries can drive. Jill and I are committing to at least $250 of the $1,000.
If you’d like to support us for our half-marathon:
- Just click on the “Make a Donation” link on the right sidebar of our site. It will lead you to paypal.com where you can make a secure donation to our account (goodtimesx2). You don’t need a paypal account to donate.

Even if you can’t support us, please pray for us – so we don’t die while running! Thanks, and let us know if you have any questions.
