‘Hall of Painer’ Jonathan, completes his tough run but hasn’t quite reached his target amount yet.

He took on the challenge to raise £1,000 for CVM out of gratitude for the Crazy Way Gospel booklet we produce. So far he’s raised £550 of his total. You can support his efforts by sponsoring him a few more quid here.

Jonathan’s dad had a short battle with pancreatic cancer and in June, passed away from this life to a life in eternity with Jesus Christ. Jonathan is assured of this after having the joy of leading his father into a relationship with Jesus with the help of CVM’s Crazy Way booklet resource.

I had the privilege of sharing this hope with my dad in the last stages of his life, by giving him a booklet that CVM produce called ‘The Crazy Way’. It's after reading that book and me explaining things to him, that he asked me if we could pray together. In that prayer he asked Jesus to forgive his sins and make him God’s child.

Jonathan shared exactly why he did the Tough 10 Delamere Forest 10k Run for CVM. “Because of a certain hope that I will see my dad again!

And because I know time is precious, and there are many sons, fathers and grandfathers who need reaching with the gospel of Jesus Christ. And this is my personal hope.”
