Pastor Driving From Connecticut To EP To Show ‘Love Goes Farther’
After a man filled with hate drove 10 hours to carry out a shooting in El Paso, a pastor in Connecticut is driving even longer to show love goes farther. After the August 3rd shooting at a Walmart in El Paso took the lives of 22 people and injured dozens more, a pastor said he was moved to do something to help. Rev. Adam Bowles from Norwich, Connecticut is driving to El Paso right now to spread his message that "love goes farther" than hate. He's currently on the road, making the 2,300-mile journey from Connecticut to El Paso, Texas to support our grieving community and raise money for the victims of the shooting.
Before the shooting, the gunman drove ten hours with his heart filled with hate before he committed his horrific crimes. Rev. Bowles, along with his brother-in-law and church member Matt, are completing that same drive today, and their hearts are filled with so much love and compassion for our community. The first fundraising goal was to raise $1 for each mile of the journey, about $2,300 dollars. Having reached that goal, they are now attempting to raise $10,000 for the local Paso Del Norte's Victim's Relief Fund. They are less than halfway to this goal and if you would like to donate please do so here at this website.
While on their journey, the group made time to stop off in Dayton, Ohio and meet with locals in the community and visit the memorial from the shooting that happened only 13 hours after the El Paso tragedy.
Now, they are heading out this morning from the Dallas area and expect to be in El Paso by this evening. They will spend the weekend in El Paso, visiting with locals If you would like to follow Rev. Bowles and the Love Goes Farther moment, you can add them on Facebook and Instagram.
