My Story

Here's some things you should know. Until about 6 months ago I had not swam regularly since I was the slow poke on my high school swim team. Also being from Florida I have certain standards I hold about swimming and swimming in ice cold water does not meet my criteria. I have been quoted as saying, "I will never swim in British water." And yet here I find myself embarking on my newest and probably craziest challenge yet to raise money for Message Wales. On the 7th of July I will be doing a 1.2 mile swim in Tenby to raise money for Message Wales. I would love for you to support me as I finish training for this event and actually dip my toes and whole body into the water to do this.
This is so out of my comfort zone but working at Message Wales I am constantly being pushed out of my comfort zone. I saw this quote on Facebook the other day, "Great things never came from comfort zones." That really hit home for me. I have seen God do such great things but they have almost always occurred when I stepped out of my comfort zone. Working at Message Wales I've grown the most and experienced so much of God's goodness outside my comfort zone. So every year we have to do a fundraiser for Message Wales. Raising money to do lessons on Christianity in school, putting on events in South Wales where the Gospel preached to young people and bringing the Higher Tour to South Wales in 2018. So I'm stepping out of my comfort zone. I'm stepping into the water. Would you support me and my work at Message Wales?

Thank You
