If you’ve been a regular at this blog, you’ll know I’ve followed two great organizations from time to time and given you some brief updates.

I’m pleased to report that the Across Mongolia Expedition successfully completed running 1500 miles across the country of Mongolia last month. They were able to generously help an orphanage and take time to feed hundreds of children along the way. They are currently working on the creation of a documentary about the journey to inspire others to live their lives strong to the finish. To check out an update, visit strongtothefinish.com.

The Pearl House launched it’s adventure of rescuing girls off of the streets of Ghana a few months back. Looking at their blogs, it appears like they have grown leaps and bounds to about 20 girls which have now started school. Many of them had a hard time with English at first, but the skills are coming along nicely. Recently, they got to meet one of the founders of the organization. I won’t spoil it, but even I had a tear or two reading about the encouter. Check out their updates here, at thepearlhouse.org.
