The Kingdom of Eswatini (formerly Swaziland)

Elim Church Romsey has had an association with Challenge Ministries Swaziland (CMS) for several years.

CMS is a charity based at Potters Wheel Church in Mbabane, the capital of Eswatini. CMS supports many causes including a Men's Centre, a Women's Centre and children's work in remote communities. Most notably they founded and run an orphanage caring for nearly 400 children in Bulembu, an old mining town in the North West of the country.

THE VIRTUAL LONDON MARATHON

RUNNING FOR A REASON - SHOES

We are excited to announce that not only do we have a runner (Cathy Bishop) in the Live Virgin Money London Marathon which takes place on 3rd October but we also have two of our young adults in Bulembu (Sbongseni and Innocent) who will be running in the Virtual London Marathon to raise money to buy shoes for all their brothers and sisters.

PLEASE SPONSOR THEM TO HELP THEM ACHIEVE THEIR GOAL TO BUY NEW SHOES FOR ALL THE CHILDREN IN OUR CARE.

It will be a tough run given how hilly it is in Bulembu with lots of rough terrain.

Cathy Bishop was amazed to have secured her own place via the ballot to run the Live London Marathon in London and decided to run for Challenge Ministries Swaziland.  Here is a link to her fundraising page.
