Simon and Jenn Holland

Challenge Date:

TBC September 2021

My Challenge:

Holland's Hike:

On 24th October 2020, Simon and Jenn completed their local challenge. They walked the entire Avon Valley Path in one go. That's 54.6km, 34miles, in hideous weather!

Watch their summary here:

Ethiopia 2021:

We're looking ahead to when international safety allows us to head out to wonderful Ethiopia - to see first-hand the amazing work that Compassion does. On challenge day, Simon and Jenn will be undertaking a long distance trek through the Ethiopian countryside. The distance, the heat and the altitude will make it a massive challenge!

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!
