I had been blogging with a Google Blogger site and suddenly the bottom dropped out. This was my last post. Pretty much in shock as I recorded this. My faith was shaking, I really was in a bad way. I remember thinking, “well this is it, the world is ending and I am here to experience it” For months the only thing I could pray (when I could pray at all) was “God what are you doing….Stop this please!!!”
Took me a long time to learn: Trust God…. Even in the bad times. I could say those words, but when the rubber hit the road for me, I had to truly learn to do it for real. I never would have learned that without this pandemic. God’s timing and His plans are perfect!!!
This is where we spent a lot of our time in the pre pandemic times. That sounds weird I know. A lot of weird has come rolling in since March of 2020.
We are members of Christian Motorcyclists Association and our Ministry area is Youth. All things Youth. We love working with young people sharing what I like to call our Biblical World View. Sounds very official. It’s nothing more than living life according to God’s purpose and plans. We both share the same reality. We have tried it our way (for years) and that leads to much heartache and aggravation. It’s not fun.
Once the pandemic restrictions end, You will be able to find us at MX tracks. Motorcross Bike Racing. Amateur racing. Very family oriented and very exciting. We discovered that handing out bottles of ice water to racers at the finish line creates a lot of good will. Conversations, friendships and the opportunity to share our faith in Jesus Christ. Our goal, to reach others who are searching for the answers to the big questions. If we can change one heart , it will be worth it.
Our ministry areas are in Florida where we were living. This year though we relocated to Georgia to be closer to our family. Plans for now are to continue the areas that we are most familiar with and where we have relationships with both racers and track owners and staff.
We can’t wait to get started. 2020 had been a challenge for everyone and we pray that The Lord will open doors and let us leave last year in the past.
Thanks for reading We will be posting more as we get started up again. Soon we hope to meet you all out there. We have a cold bottle of water for you. Check us out!!!
