Walk 4 the Mission March 26, 2011
The visit of the “Three Wise Women from the West” ( three ladies from the Houston area of United States) to places where MSP are working in Nigeria in 2008 created a deep impression in the hearts of the women. Their stories led the Associate Missionaries of St. Paul in Houston to think of ways to support the efforts of the MSP in Nigeria. One of the ladies, Ms. Lois Coleman, suggested we organize a walk-a-thon to raise funds for the educational needs of the children in MSP missions. This suggestion was accepted at the AMSP meeting in May 2009. After much planning the first annual “Walk 4 the Mission” was held on January 30, 2010 at Tom Bass Park in Houston. Since 'Walk for the Mission' has become an annual event organised by associate missionaries from the Houston area of United States. This year the walk-a-thon was held on March 26, 2011 at the same location. As usual it witnessed a turnout of MSP supporters from various parishes and communities around. Below are some of the pictures at the event.
