Archangel Group International was founded by, Jonathan Macklin, an American Law Enforcement Officer. The organization is based in Decatur but currently operates in the nation of Zambia, Africa. The organization was founded to assist the people in poverty of Zambia and to provide them with the following financial and physical resources: Religious works, humanitarian aid, suitable housing, digging of borewells for fresh drinking water, healthcare, and rescuing orphans.  

Due to the levels of poverty in Zambia, this has caused many children to be abandoned to fend for themselves and become orphans. This issue has also caused many children to become the victims of human trafficking. The founder has already formed a personal relationship with the Zambia Police, and he will ultimately take his law enforcement experience to the country. The founder will be bringing additional resources from the United States to train the police and to assist them with combating human trafficking.  

Please join us as we raise money to assist God's children that live in Zambia. All the proceeds are going towards our missions.  

Please sign-up for our 5K Race or 1-Mile Fun Run. (Race timing by River City Runners)
