"When I was adopted, my parents picked me up from the hospital and I was not in an incubator… I had been born 2 months premature.They were told later, that if I had not received the proper medical care, it is likely that I would not have lived.”
43 years ago, in Hualien, Taiwan, Julia was adopted and her life changed. Julia had been born 2 months premature and the Mustard Seed Mission Taiwan (MSM) was there when Julia needed them. They saw a need in the community & put "ACTION" to help with the need. It wasn't until Julia was about 40 years old that she heard about MSM. She learned that it is the organization which helped her to have a great start in life.
Due to the "MUST DO ACTION" provided by MSM at that time for Julia 43 years ago, she now has her own sweet family. Julia is so grateful and is willing to do more to help MSM to serve needy children. She hopes that together we could help to transform the lives of disadvantaged children. To help to give them hope for the future, just as she was given this chance at life so long ago.
The reasons why we named the event MUST ACT, is because MUST is the first four letters of MUSTARD SEED MISSION, and it calls for a “MUST DO ACTION”! Therefore, we named this event "MUST ACT"!
The MUST ACT PROPOSE: Supporting needy children and Walking with them!
2017 MUST ACT – Run for Kids 為孩子而跑
Julia希望幫助目前住在愛心育幼院的孩子們。因此在明年2月，她將參加她目前在美國阿拉巴馬州的梅賽德斯馬拉松比賽，為愛心育幼院重建來募款，她希望這項募款活動能幫助愛心育幼院募集到更多的重建基金。兒童時期的身心發展是成長的根基，因此在愛心育幼院，我們希望用愛和支持來填滿孩子在孩童時期的重要的歲月。我們致力於協助更多台灣弱勢孩子們一個好的起點，就像Julia在40多年前所得到的幫助一樣。邀請您一起加入Julia，參加2017 MUST ACT為孩子而跑活動，一起為孩子跑完26.2英里。
Julia hopes to raise funds to help provide for the current children that live at the Agape Children's Home. In February, she will participate in the Mercedes Marathon in her current home state of Alabama, USA because she wishes to help raise the money needed to reconstruct the Agape Children's Home. The physical and mental development which occurs during childhood, are fundamental years of growth. At the Agape Children's home, we wish to fill these important years of life with love and support. We work to give the children of Taiwan a great start in life, just as Julia received over 40 years ago. You are invited to join Julia, as she runs 26.2 miles in the 2017 MUST ACT project for the children.
