“Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14
Last year my wife Jan took part in Gospel for Asia's Bridge Of Hope Marathon, in Brisbane, Australia.
She thoroughly enjoyed this, despite the toll it took on her sore, blistered feet!
Although this was her first time, the other two girls from our fellowship in the 'Keep Calm And Kiwi On' team had participated in this event before.
The one drawback for teams going over from New Zealand to participate, was the large airfare and accommodation cost (around NZ$800pp).
And so, the girls pitched the idea that a similar event could take place in NZ. And with the help of our local church fellowship, 'The River: Walk For Water' was born.
