Greetings from Lynchburg, Virginia, on this beautiful Spring day!
Jesus has put within my heart, not only a song, but also the desire to serve Him wholeheartedly and with joy, passion and purpose all the days of my life. The people who know me best know that I often say, “there is a song for everything,” then I’ll start singing a familiar tune or write my own song if nothing fits the moment.
In our ministry, the bicycle has been an amazing tool for witnessing since 1993. On May 15, as our team starts our ride across Ohio, we will be rejoicing, and maybe even singing, that the “Joy of the Lord is our strength” (Nehemiah 8:10) or “This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24). We will experience the newness of Spring and should connect with many new people along the trail as well. Our prayer is that we will take each opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with a song in our hearts and a smile on our faces.

As always, the primary purpose of our mission trips is to pray, and look for witnessing opportunities, as we ride of bikes. It is our desire that the Lord will use us to share His Love and message of Salvation with the lost but also to encourage the believers we meet to be bold in talking with folks they meet about Jesus as well.
