kidney march

This weekend is the Kidney March that I told you about a few months ago.
My dad and uncle have been walking for the past two days.
Here are a few pictures that my mom has sent to keep us updated:
This was day one...before the walking began.

This was close to the end of day two (today).
My dad (right) and uncle (left) are doing great.
They have finished 5th and 6th both days.
Way to go guys!
Tomorrow is the final day...sixteen miles to go.

My dad was having some knee troubles before he left,
so we are praying that he can finish strong tomorrow.
He said he thinks he gave his "better" kidney to his brother. :)

We are proud of you Dad...
and you too Uncle David!

Hi, My name Tara Long. I found your blog through a friend about a year ago and I have been (blog)stalking you ever since. You are such an amazing and uplifting family, I couldn't help but keep coming back!
I hope you don't think I am crazy but, I was reading in one of my favorite books the other day and came across a few verses that made me think of you and I just wanted to share them with you. I hope its OK.

Mosiah 16:6-9
6 And now if Christ had not come into the world, speaking of things to come as though they had already come, there could have been no redemption.
7 And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection.
8 But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.
9 He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.

I am not trying to preach to you or anything I just felt these were good and uplifting, and a lot like what you talk about. They are verses from The Book of Mormon Another Testament of Jesus Christ. You can read more here if you want.

Thank you for your example of faith and love.

ps: You have the cutest family!!
