“I feel thrilled and privileged to be involved with the I Can and I am journey. It is clear to me that God has blessed James Shone with a special vision to inspire people and build confidence – a cause very close to my heart. My prayer is that this work can continue to flourish so that as many people can be inspired and encouraged as possible.”
