    Eloise Wellings and Julius Achon

    Eloise Wellings and Julius Achon

    Eloise Wellings is an Aussie Long distance runner & Olympic Athlete. She founded the Love Mercy Foundation in 2009 and has since impacted over 100,000 local Ugandans through health & agriculture programs. She is a strong Christian & has stated that she missed out on the Sydney 2000 Olympics due to an injury and thought God was punishing her. She went to church with a school friend and began to understand God’s love for her. She stated, “Once I found Jesus I was free to use the gifts He had given me and it didn’t matter if I succeeded or not.” Wellings also missed out on the Athens and Beijing Olympics due to injury. However, she states, “All of my disappointing results and disappointing injuries and heartbreak missing 3 Olympics, there was always this belief and faith that my identity is in Jesus and that’s my foundation. When you’ve got that, you can’t be shaken. Every time I get up to train, I just ask that he be glorified, that he give me the strength to do it, that he help give me the right thoughts to think – and not necessarily that I win but that he would be made known to people as I run.
    Julius Achon has an inspiring story of hope which continues to unfold. He grew up in the remote village of Awake in Northern Uganda in severe poverty.

    Bill Wiser

    Bill Wiser

    Bill Wiser is an Author, Pastor & Teacher. He’s one of the leaders in a Christian Community called Danthonia near Inverell in NSW, Australia. This community is a part of the Bruderhof, which was founded in 1920 in Germany by the Protestant theologian Eberhard Arnold. Appalled by mounting social injustice and the horrors of World War I, they sought answers in Jesus’ teachings, especially his Sermon on the Mount. Through this search they felt a call to radical discipleship: to give up everything for Christ. With a handful of like-minded seekers, they began to live in community of goods after the example of the first church in Jerusalem. Soon they adopted the name Bruderhof – literally, “place of brothers.” www.bruderhof.com
