Thames Youth Walk For Charity

On Tuesday 10th April, Restore Youth and their leaders set off with big bags on a sponsored Thames walk to raise money for charities such as Water Aid, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Latin Link and my charity was Athentikos. 

Reading the map to find out which way we should go from Putney Bridge.

After a few miles...

Stopping to pray near Battersea Power Station and allowing God to speak through it.

Ringing the bell for freedom in the year of Jubilee outside the Archbishop of Canterbury's gaff.

There was a series of tasks set for each 'family', telling a joke to a stranger was one of them!
Awkwardly, the man didn't speak and understand English very well.

Famous London Eye!

Praying for our government!

'I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.' 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Taking a break!

Praying for God to rain down His spirit on London.

                  'Team Reem' (Oh dear! :P) performing their brilliant rap that was one of the tasks.

                                        My family for the walk :)

                                             Nice views!

18 miles, 6 large blisters, lots of laughs, bringing heaven on earth, money going to make a difference.
Yeah, I'd do it again.
