I have a story I would like to share with you about a man, a bicycle and cross-country journey. The man’s name is Brad Weaver. He and his family are friends of mine although I don’t see them often. His wife’s name is Tiffany and together they have Gunnar and Isabella. Brad had a desire to bring awareness to people about prayer. This is where his adventure starts. He decided to embark on the trip of a lifetime. He is traveling across the U.S.A. on a bicycle with the intention to talk with and pray with as many people as he can. With a lot of support, emotionally and financially, from family and friends his journey started last weekend. Along the way he will be visiting churches, staying with kind-hearted people who have offered him shelter and a meal, and meeting and praying with people he comes into contact with. I have followed his video blogs. They are so inspiring and touching. He already has had some discouraging days where things don’t seem to go right. He has been riding through the mountains where the hills seem endless. His dad is driving his support truck that stays behind him or sometimes drives ahead of him and waits. I look forward to each and every one of his posts. I want to see where he has been and like to hear him talk about the people he has met. To follow his incredible journey go to http://www.prayingacrossamerica.blogspot.com/ Your prayers are greatly appreciated.
Even though Brad and his family live in Wilmot, he started out his journey in Hilton Head I believe(I could be wrong on the town but I know it was in one of the Carolinas). So he has been heading our way all week. And I think if all goes according to plan, he will be at our church, First Baptist in Berlin, on Tuesday(June 5th) night for prayer meeting. We normally have it Wed. but moved it to Tues. because of Brad’s schedule.
I can not do justice to this story by simply telling you about it. Check out his blog and see for yourself. Follow along on his journey. Take a moment to say a prayer for him. Also, prayers for his family are appreciated because I’m sure they are missing him and also worry about him. I hope you enjoy his story. Please let me know if you check out his blog. Would love to hear your comments, thoughts, or words of encouragement for Brad. I will be sure to pass them along.
Thanks for reading!
Until next time…..
