9781920222338: That's Why I Run

In 1993, Argentina Senda was struck down by a mysterious, life-threatening illness; her doctors recommended that she have her right leg amputated. A year later and without having gone through with the amputation surgery a cured Senda completed her first long-distance road race. This autobiography follows one woman's journey from the brink of despair to the height of achievement. Detailing how the discipline of running has had a positive impact on Senda’s life, this is a story of faith and also a means of giving thanks to God for her miraculous recovery.

About the Author:

Argentina Senda is an international marathoner. She qualified to run for the South African national team in 2000 and has won numerous gold, silver, and bronze medals.

Evelyn Higginbotham was raised as a missionary’s daughter in Seoul Korea, and has been married to David Higginbotham since 1983.  David was called into the ministry in New York in 1987, which led to Evelyn’s healing from a rare eye disease that had caused her to become legally blind for almost 3 years. After her healing, they moved their family to South Africa to begin the work of the Universal Church in Johannesburg, right at the transition from apartheid rule to a democratic government.  Their ministry in the townships and cities around the country brought them into contact with thousands of South Africans in poverty and in great need of help.  It was at that time that Evelyn met Argentina Senda, and became familiar with her story. 

They are currently based in Houston, Texas, where David pastors at the Succeed in Life Center and where they both teach various courses through their church.  They have served in New York, South Africa, The Philippines, Los Angeles, London and Houston. David and Evelyn are authors of the book Possessed Believers.
