WHEEL POWER Missions Trip Final Report

WE PRAISE THE LORD FOR AN AMAZING

ACROSS AMERICA BICYCLE MISSION TRIP!!!

Yes, our 2018 across America bicycle mission trip has ended but we are rejoicing as we reflect on all the ways the Lord protected us, used us and blessed us beyond measure.  I wish you all could have been with us for a few days or longer, it is truly an amazing thing to do - to go out across our Country and just talk to people about Jesus, caring and sharing the Good News with everyone you meet. Being on the bicycle made it fun for us, very challenging too with the heat, humidity and hills, but we were so available to stop and talk with everyone we could and God really used us in the lives of so many people.

As a team, we also learned so much being on the road these last 2+ months. Some of the key things were trust, patience, strength, love and compassion and faithfulness to the call God placed on our hearts.

We shared the Good News with over 300 people ranging from 12 years old to 90 years young!  We were blessed to see that the Lord prepared the hearts of 14 of those folks who were ready to repent and surrender their lives, acknowledging they were sinners who needed a Savior.  As we talked with them, sharing the Truth in love, it was such a blessing to see them understand faith and truth, accept the free gift of salvation and enter into a personal relationship with Jesus and the assurance of an eternal life in Heaven.  Wow, it doesn’t get much better than that!!!!

This was WHEEL POWER’s 38th mission trip, it’s 13thacross America trip on bicycle and personally my 15th trip pedaling coast to coast to spread the Gospel.  I was also riding to visit my two sisters, who live in California, Carol and Dorothy, and to attend my 50thHigh School reunion which was also in California and such a great blessing.

As you know, we are celebrating the 25thAnniversary of WHEEL POWER Christian Cyclists and thank the Lord for every team member, supporter, church connection and person we shared the Gospel with all these years.  We are also rejoicing in the almost unbelievable milestone of pedaling 2 million mileswithout ever having an accident with a moving vehicle on the highways.  Wow, thank you, Lord, we praise you for watching over our teams these last 25 years of ministry and ask that you continue to grant us safety each mile of our lives.

 

I want to thank everyone who prayed for me and our team, we could not have made it without your prayers, support and encouragement.

Our host churches and their families really blessed us too with a nice warm/or cool place to sleep each night in their church, fellowship, food and showers.  Sharing testimony stories, playing the guitar and challenging Christians along the way in the church services was just another special highlight of our mission trip.

Our 2019 bicycle Mission Trips will be posted in our Christmas letter.  We will be offering several shorter trips next year, ranging from 3-10 days in length throughout the USA.  Our teams will also be riding on several State Rides, such as bike across Virginia, Georgia and Tennessee and possibly other States. >

Please keep our ministry in your prayers and we hope you’ll be able to help us with a financial gift so we can keep spreading the Gospel throughout our Country.

All God’s blessings and keep in touch, both in prayers and visits.

We always have a place for you here at the WHEEL POWER Headquarters in Lynchburg.
