26 Oct Day 08 From Guillonville to Mont St Michel
August 8th, 2017 – Day 8 of a 26 day, 11 flight and 4 country adventure, Capturing Grace in France, Ukraine, Russia and Spain.
Mine and Carissa’s last day with the World Without Orphans Cycling team was epic as we reached the Atlantic ocean and the spectacular Mont St Michel in the Normandy area of France. One of France’s most recognizable landmarks, Mont Saint-Michel and its bay are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
Reaching the Atlantic ocean has been almost a month in coming since the teams departure from Germany and the celebration was great!
The time that Michael, Carissa and myself have had with the team these past eight days have been unforgettable and I look forward to sharing more of their stories in the days to come.
I now write this post from the country of Ukraine and I miss the team greatly. These men and boys have a contagious appreciation for life as a result of their relationship with the one that breathed into us the breath of life. They have experienced all matter of atrocities yet continue to love big through the grace of God. This has been an unforgettable eight days in France and my heart is grateful.
