I’m diverting from my normal posts regarding Greek language, PhD studies, and lately, John Barclay’s new book.
Today, I want to encourage you to consider helping a friend of mine from seminary.
His name is Karl Heitman, and he is just awesome. This guy is a faithful husband and father, a dedicated pastor of a church in Washington, and a loyal chaplain in the US Air Force.
He was diagnosed with Stage II Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in October, and has begun radiation treatment. He’s only 31 years old.
In his honour, I’m competing in the ITU World Triathlon series stage 5 in Leeds, England. I’m racing in order to raise £400 pounds for the UK charity Bloodwise, which conducts leukaemia and lymphoma research to beat cancer.
Please, consider donating today. Any amount is greatly appreciated, and is a display of compassion for people like my friend Karl. It’s really easy and a good use of your time, so just click the link below:
And thank you for reading this blog!
