Philippians 4:4-9
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. and the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Go Caleb!



Update on the below information--
Caleb has now raised $1100 for water in South Sudan!!

That is water for 22 people for a lifetime!

And he is still hoping to impact the lives of more.


 Hello friends and family--

I will be running the Pear Blossom 10 miler on April 13th with Team World Vision to help change lives in Africa. 

As you know I spent my first 5 1/2 years in Liberia, West Africa.  I have personally seen and experienced the poverty and need that is abundant in many parts of Africa.  

Recently my family read together "Running for My Life" by Lopez Lomong, a former lost boy of Sudan who is now an American citizen and Olympian.  He talked about wanting to do something for the people he left behind in Africa.  He started an organization called        4 South Sudan, and teamed with World Vision to help bring clean water, education and the Word of God to many in need in Africa!

The needs are great, but I believe there is something we can do!

I am running the Pear Blossom and seeking sponsors to help me raise $500 or more for World Vision.  $50 provides clean water for 1 person for a generation. That will be enough to provide clean water for 10 people or more for an entire generation!

Can you imagine what it would be like not to have clean water available?  

I Can!

We can make a difference together!

Will you make a tax-deductible donation to support my efforts? Together we can help change lives in Africa.

If you would like to help please go to www.teamworldvision.org  You will need to click the donate button.  Then enter my name "Caleb Jordan".  Scroll down and click on my name and you will then be directed how to make a tax deductible donation.

I can also take check donations made out to World Vision and I will forward them on for you.  They will send you a donation receipt.

Thank you for your help and encouragement,
Caleb Jordan
