Norfolk BB veteran returns from Asia climb
2009: Norfolk author Paul Juby has recently returned from the far east where he climbed 13,000 ft Mount Kinabulu, the highest mountain in south east Asia. This was the fourth time 78 year old Paul has completed the expedition which takes place every three years to raise money for Boys' Brigade Asia. This year's climb was not an easy one for the 18-strong Boys' Brigade team as torrential rain made climbing the rocks slippery.
Paul is Honorary Vice-President of the boys' brigade in Malaysia and is also founder of the Norfolk Stedfast, the alumni of the Boys' Brigade.
Paul reports that the Boys' Brigade is doing very well in Malaysia, “Their largest company in Borneo has 600 boys, which causes a problem when they all want to attend their church! One of my old Companies recently held a gospel service when 92 people made decisions for Christ. Wonderful!”
The Norfolk Stedfast Association recently hosted the national AGM in Great Yarmouth, with delegates attending from all over the country. The meeting was followed by a river cruise at Wroxham to introduce everyone to the Norfolk broads and the day was rounded off with entertainment by Norfolk comedians to show yet another side of Norfolk!
Any former Boys' Brigade members who are interested in joining Stedfast can contact Paul on 01493 369135.
