    We're done! We didn't reach out goal, but we feel okay about it.

  • Update - July 25, 2020, 3:28 a.m.

    At any about 1:30a, we realized we were going to have a difficult time reaching out goal. We slept for a bit and are getting back on our bikes to see how far we can go in our remaining 6 hours. My quads hurt more than anything else.

    134. Starting to feel it! But we're done with the heat!

    7/16/20 The #2020AgonyRide is just over a week away. A small group of us have decided on a route in/around Genoa, NV. It's a new experience needing to plan our own route and SAG support - makes me really thankful for all the work that is typically done on the riders behalf!

  • Update - July 9, 2020, 2:57 p.m.

    7/9/20 - We are 15 days from the Agony and Christian Encounter was informed today that the permits necessary to host the ride in the Sierra Valley will not be issued. And so all riders are going virtual. I am brainstorming an alternate route and plan now. This will make reaching my original goal more difficult - but my heart and mind are set on doing all I can.

    7/7/2020 - I've reached my original fundraising goal of $5,000 and have decided to increase my goal to $8,000! (Also, Strava tells me that I've ridden 625 miles since January 1. That is a lot of miles to prepare for the #2020AgonyRide!)

Nearly ten years ago, I was drawn to Christian Encounter because I desired to be a part of helping others close the gap between where they are and where the Lord calls them to be. I wanted to partner with Jesus to see the full capacity of Isaiah 61 on the earth. Each day at the Ranch, the Good News is being proclaimed. Each day, with the help of the Holy Spirit, young people take courageous steps from bondage toward freedom, brokenness toward healing, mourning toward joy, ashes toward beauty, and devastation toward restoration.

​This year, I find myself excited to ride in the 2020 Agony, because by riding I get to partner with Jesus to bring freedom, healing, joy, beauty, and restoration to the students’ lives.
