Hi all,

Merry Christmas!

I have the opportunity to organize some particular Christmas celebration. Christmas Gran Fondo(200km).
It was the first opportunity I have to wear my IC3 uniform. At the return point (100km) we took some Sancoho(Panamanian chicken soup) in a fonda(rural cheap restaurant) and I shared short words regarding the HOPE that baby Jesus brought to our lives. HOPE of reconciliation with the Father.

It was the first time I ride that long. I struggle a lot with cramps during the last 40 kms but thanks God I finished. To God be the glory.

Attached are some pics.

I’m willing to open the IC3 spoke in Panama, so please pray for God shows us the path.

Merry Christmas and Blessed 2015!
