The Third Day Gomers want to challenge the Panheads to help us make a difference for the children of Gulu.

Saturday, October 21, 2006 is the date of the worldwide GuluWalk (http://www.guluwalk.com). This walk is to raise awareness about what is happening to the children in Uganda. If you have heard about the movie Invisible Children (http://www.invisiblechildren.com), then you know what I'm talking about. If not, World Vision's site has information about it here (http://www.worldvision.org/worldvision/wvususfo.nsf/stable/globalissues_uganda?Open).

The crisis in Uganda is very close to the hearts of Third Day. They have been talking about it all year at their concerts. Tai Anderson, Third Day bassist, went there to see for himself what the children are going through, and it broke his heart. You can read more about Third Day's involvement with this on their advocacy page (http://www.thirdday.com/wwa/advocacy.htm).

On October 21, we Third Day Gomers are going to join the GuluWalkers for the 2.5 mile walk. We'd like to challenge the Panheads to join us.

Go to the GuluWalk website (http://www.guluwalk.com), find a walk in your city (http://www.guluwalk.com/doaguluwalk/), and join us in walking. There are walks all over the world on the same day. You can even have a Panheads team, where Skillet fans all over the world can join you in walking or sponsor your team.

**You do not have to have any sponsors to walk. The main goal is to raise awareness.

If you don't want to walk, but you'd like to help, you can support the Third Day Gomers team by coming to our team webpage (https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/TeamPage.aspx?EventID=7428&LangPref=en-CA&TeamID=28505).

Please join us in helping these children by walking or giving. Let's show the world that our Christian music communities can put feet to our faith!

I personally don't support any international programs or ministries. While I am sure they are a good cause, I see too many people who focus on overseas missions rather than looking at people who need help in our own country. Too many of these teens who get into international missions to go on a vacation and say they have been there rather than for the purpose of spreading the gospel. I think the song Africa by the Paul Colman Trio says it best.

To each their own, that is just my .02.
