Hello my name is Daniel Jamison.
I am a native of Placer County and lived for some years in Nevada County. My friends introduced me to CEM and I did one Agony ride in 2010 or there abouts. Together with some great friends we rode 354 miles and I will never forget that. It was very challenging but I believe that only the love of Jesus is able to change a life. For the people who find their way to CEM through the various avenues that they come the power of Jesus is what changes them. Through faith in Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit I am alive today and able to serve Jesus with my hands and heart. I work for Bwindi Community Hospital together with my wife as full time volunteers. We have been supporting their work in various ways for the last five years. We would not be here serving today if not for very generous people who have supported our work and encouraged us to continue. We had hoped and planned to travel to the USA this year but because of borders closing, the airport is closed and all the Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to travel. I was talking to my wife about doing the Agony ride this year in Loyalton to join my friends again but instead the Agony is coming to us.
Our plan is to ride from 1PM Friday up to 7PM which is curfew. It is not safe to ride at night anyhow so we will eat, rest and prepare for the morning. Curfew ends at 6:30 AM so we will ride again up till 1PM. My longest ride in Uganda has been 94 miles with 11,000 feet of climbing, and it really beat me up. It was all off road, dirt, gravel, dust rock etc. That took me 12 hours. My goal is to ride 150 miles with the time we have. We live in the hills so maybe I can find something more flat. I will ride some alone and hope to cover more distance the first portion. The second day in the morning I will ride with my wife and we will cover as much distance as we can.
We are thankful for the health to ride, the bicycles that are working well at the moment and the gift of life that God has given us. God has bought us back from slavery to sin and also redeemed our family and marriage when satan has tried to destroy it. We are happy to support the work of CEM from the other side of the world and believe that God can help us reach our goals for sponsorship as well as safe miles on the road.
