Compassion Challenges -Simon and Jenn Holland

Challenger Profile


Simon and Jenn Holland

Challenge Date:

18th - 25th September 2020

My Challenge:

On challenge day, Simon and Jenn will be trekking 63km through the Ethiopian countryside. They do plenty of walking, but this challenge will be a bit more than their usual weekend stroll around the flat New Forest! The whole trip's also going to be a big step outside Jenn's comfort zone - she' never been abroad and is daunted even by a trip into London!




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £1,400.00

Offline Total: £0.00

Gift Aid: £233.75

Simon and Jenn met when they were kids, in fact they were neighbours. Through many water fights, birthday parties, church nativities and bring & share lunches, they became firm friends. As teenagers, they questioned and journeyed through big issues of life and faith together, and were each there to witness the other's relationship with Jesus and baptism. They got married February 2019, and live near Southampton.

The Hollands are passionate about poverty, and about Jesus. They have experienced God's heart of love and care, and know that it's for all His children. Simon and Jenn feel called to be God's hands and feet, to follow His Will and work for His Kingdom. They want to stand up against the injustice of poverty, and bring practical solutions to suffering. They want to share the good news of hope and joy that can be found in Jesus. And they want God's unending, mighty love to reach everyone, everywhere!

A brave step out of your comfort zones, guys. One that will make a difference, especially to the family of the Etheopean girl you are supporting.
