Day 14 – Beverley to Bardney (Lincolnshire)

It was already raining by the time I opened the door to walk to the prayer room at King’s Church.. it was going to be wet.. I had prayed it would stop, but I think some farmers must have been praying more !! Haha

I left King’s Church at 8.45 after excusing myself from morning prayers. Was so great to see such a committed bunch going after Jesus!

I rolled through Beverley (Briefly praying) outside the Minster and then continuing the 8 miles towards the Humber bridge.

Riding a bike in the rain is a bit like abseiling… once your over the edge you get on with it.. so knowing my skin was waterproof under my now sodden cycling gear was a relief!!!  I’d only been riding 40 minutes and felt like I’d been standing in a shower fully dressed! I just cracked on worshipping and praying.

The sat nav wanted me on the East Side of the Humber bridge but the path was closed so after a double back for ten minutes I found a way through.

The Humber is vast…I stopped halfway over the bridge to pray and listen then clearing yorkshire made my way into Lincolnshire.

No great divine appointments/ connections until I arrived in Bardney. Found I had broken a  spoke and a local mechanic (friend of my hosts) very kindly sorted it for free. I had opportunity to pray for him and his business..

Before diner had a walk to the community grocery and coffee shop all established on kingdom principles. Amazing!
