PEI, land of Anne and red soil and the confederation bridge. Canada 150 is big here. At the only island CRC, hospitality is huge. We were greeted with appetizers of mussels and oysters then treated to a feast and celebration as C2C comes to a close.
Two more rides, but the prep for completion began a week ago already, before our leg was half done, for those going coast to coast. There have been testimonies and thank-yous and plans outlined for our final landing at the Atlantic on Tuesday. It is great to be part of the last leg and feel both the joy and fatigue of the group. These are resilient riders for sure.
We also continue to hear about the work of World Renew and Partners International. Today in a conversation with the Partners rep, I learned about their work helping support sustainable agriculture and business – something they are already working at in Haiti. I was especially glad to hear that the funds raised by C2C go to new efforts and projects previously on the back burner.
We camped on the church lawn, worshipped and ate lunch with them, enjoyed a few rain showers since we are not on the bikes, and walked in beautiful touristic downtown Charlottetown.
We are in awe of this island province, our community of faith generously fighting poverty, people we have met along the way and come to love, testimonies of life changing experience, and the fact that words cannot convey the depth of this experience. Thank you again for your prayers and support as we participate in this transformative journey.
