[p]In 2001 I started my journey with Youth for Christ. I never expected to be here this long but it is such an exciting important ministry staying seemed obvious.[/p][p]Each week we have around 400 interactions with young people. 400 interactions that would not happen if Youth for Christ was not in Gloucestershire. The only trouble is that there are 150,000 young people in Gloucestershire and 400 interactions a week is a long way short of reaching them all. We exist to see young people’s lives changed by Jesus. Some encounter Jesus, others discover their purpose and others come to understand that there really are people who care and gain in self-confidence.[/p][p]The Lon Las Challenge is an opportunity for a final challenge in my 40s before I reach the big one at the of 2019! This time I am taking on a challenge with a group of people who have a wide range of experience of taking on such a challenge, some with no experience at all. Lon Las Cymru, or North to South Wales, is a challenging 235-mile route through the country’s most mountainous countryside, including the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia. It is one of the most challenging rides in the UK, behind Lands’ End to John O’Groats. The scenery is among the finest in the UK, starting at Holyhead and heading across valleys, mountain tops and estuaries until arriving at Cardiff. Ridden over four days it is a challenging ride.
