Final Thoughts- Wow Jesus is Lord! Your generosity leaves me speechless. My wife and daughter and friends Marting and Barbara Slagel were valuable to keep Bob and I going! The surprise visit of Jackie, Karen, and Susanne at Loyalton was extra special. A favorite Ranch we passed 5 times on our 55 mile route around the Sierra Valley was "Knucklehead Ranch." I'm sure this is what people thought of us at 2am wondering their roads in darkness. It was definitely hillier than the normal route but the roads were smoothe. Bob is sentimental and road with only 1 waterbottle as at last years Agony he hit a pothole and the cage sheered off. The kids and staff are definitely worth it! A big thank you to Sierra CHristian Church in Beckwourth for the use of their facilities! Craig

Praise the Lord! God is good and I’ll be riding in the Sierra Valley with Nancy and Megan supporting me out of a church in Beckwourth. I’ll be riding with veteran agonizer Bob Bayly who lives in Loyalton and was going to ride alone so... great opportunity to fellowship!
Please pray with me as I find a route to ride 24 hours in 11 days. Possible sitings are Lake Tahoe or the Sutter Buttes~ Craig
thanks for sponsoring me for the 2020 agony ride to provide tuition and room and board for at risk students. Saturday I hit 1000 miles and hope to have 1500 miles by July 20 so your prayers are appreciated as I juggle family time, home projects, along with riding. I am praying for you on my rides and the last 2 days I came upon 2 prospective sponsors that I met as I was riding! Praise the Lord! They have not sponsored me in the past.
Thank you for sponsoring and praying for me as we partner in rescuing youth from ruin and showing them and others the unconditional love of Jesus Christ!
I am hopeful to be riding in the Sierra Valley again but if COVID 19 restrictions are in place I will still be riding somewhere! I will be praying for you and text me 530-263-5134 for specific prayer requests. Please pray for safety and my mind as I memorize 1 Peter 1. Thank you again for your partnership! Craig

Craig, this is your 15th Agony ride I know you suffer for Christ and the Kids at the Ranch as a act of service, servant-hood and obedience... Make sure to wear your chamois butter and don't do more than 399 miles you would not want to boast in your service to Christ.. May God truly bless you in this plague adjusted off year for Agony, I will pray for permits now and on July 8th for the event to go off as planned.. Thanks for the opportunity to sponsor you again-Kurt

Hi Mr. Craig, Great to see your photos. We are all done and happy to be home. Guess what? Now it is raining. Rachel finished 99 miles and almost hit 100 before the clock was up. Great weather and wonderful time with my wife. The people here are great and we had a lot of fun together. We will do it again I'm sure. Very cool to see how everyone is working together and how God is providing in all ways. Blessings to you. Praying for focus, clarity of thought, great prayers, great conversations and great time with family and friends who love Jesus. Thank you for your prayers. Daniel Jamison
