Arvid has been struggling all day today with keeping food down. He has had little food (that has stayed down) in the last 24 hours. 

He took several longer breaks in the afternoon and evening but we have now stopped at a motel in Congress and will let him sleep. 

We do not know what the morning will bring. Please pray that his body could recover as he rests.

    Ed & I are praying for you today- that your body would accept food & water & that you could continue to ride for MCF!

    We all prayed for Grampa at breakfast and Emerson prayed extra for his stomach. Niko says: “I just want Grampa to finish. I don’t care if he’s in last place; I just want him to finish.”

    “For You are great and do marvellous deeds. You alone are God.” Ps. 86:10. Praying for you, Arvid, to experience God’s marvellous deeds in your life–body, soul and spirit. May you be encouraged and strengthened, and may God provide for all the needs at

About MCF

Charles Mulli is a former street child from the slums of Kenya. He became extremely successful in business, but then God called him to give it all up and care for the orphaned and abandoned children still on the streets in Kenya. Charles Mulli is the founder and CEO of Mully Children's Family. To learn more about MCF, click here.

Arvid's Role

God has called me (Arvid) to be an ambassador for Mully Children's Family. I have chosen to use ultramarathon cycling as my platform from which to fulfill this calling. You can follow my ride, here, at www.grandpascan.com/ride. To read more about me and my story, click here.


I am asking you to help. I am trying to raise funds for the ongoing and capital expenses for the child mothers program at MCF. This program provides the critical life skills the young mothers need. To learn more about donating, click here.
