Brazos Abiertos

We are Brazos Abiertos, a ministry with a passion to restore families according to God´s original design. In our family center we offer from education to the children, home work aid, workshops for teenagers, youth and adults to reading/writing class for adults and marriage counseling and more. All programs help to reinforce the family and help them to focus on the future.
Brazos Abiertos is located in one of the many economically challenged neighborhoods, called ´Nueva Juventud´. Brazos Abiertos is part of world wide missions network called Youth with a Mission (YWAM).

WHAT IS
RUN WITH A MISSION?

Run with a mission is a sponsor race with the goal to raise funds to build the school and family center. The current center is made out of wooden panels. 

The participant needs to look for sponsors and could also organize special events to sponsor his/her participation. The run itself can be set out in the participant´s own neighborhood and invite friends, family, company or church to join as well.

Also here in Lima, we organize a 10K, with the help of the local municipality of the district Cieneguilla.   

The 10K can be done running, biking, walking, but can also change into a 5K swimming or whatever challenge you can set out for that day. We love to hear your story! 

Our final goal is to raise 1 million Dollars!    

You can also, instead of running, support one of the runners. 

TESTIMONIES

Dear Arkleden,
Jordi and Ria Bosch (Shailoh/Brazos Abiertos Foundation) are organizing an international sponsored run on October 22 to realize their expansion of the 2nd part of their school that is yet to be built in the slums of Lima (Peru).
We plan to organize this sponsored walk on Saturday 22 October .
We gather at 2 p.m. at the entrance of the Maarsseveense Plassen beach to do a joint run/walk around the Maarsseveense Plassen of 5 km (or more) at our own pace.
We ask the runners to recruit as many sponsors as possible, in order to generate a nice amount for the project.
You can also support this sponsored walk without obligation, whether or not you participate.
Everyone can also organize any other form of sportsmanship (in his/her environment), in order to support their project. (flyers are available from Willem and Gerrie Bosch)
If you would like to join us, please contact Gerrie or Willem Bosch (willem.bosch@ziggo.nl)
You can transfer your sponsorship money to the De Ark Action Account, NL24RABO0304642479, stating “run with a mission”.
Also check www.brazosabiertos.net for more information.
See also the whiteboard in the hall of the Ark for more information about Jordi and Ria Bosch.
We take care of the collective Ark registration with Jordi and Ria and will also provide feedback.
You can always call us if you have any questions.
This will be explained further on Sunday 11 September during the start service.
regards
Willem and Gerrie Bosch

We are working on fundraising for the building fund. I am having a dinner at my house for donations at the end of September. Lilli and Lola are working to get support from the running club at school for the virtual race and we also hope to get friends in the states doing the virtual race. I am not sure how much we will make, but I am hopeful we can raise a good amount!!! Misty

Hello racers!

I have participated in the Brazos Abiertos 10K race for many years while living in Peru, and am so excited they are hosting a virtual one this year! I truly encourage everyone to participate, as there is no better gift we can give anyone than our time. Currently, I am organizing an event at my school to help raise sponsorship money towards the racers in Peru, and am also promoting the fundraising event to my friends and family.

Brazos Abiertos is an amazing program that is changing the lives of not only children but the whole family. My family and I are thankful to have worked alongside them for so many years, and can’t wait to see the difference we can make this year alongside the whole world!
Remember, every kilometer counts, so get running!
