That sounds like a blast!! I'll be praying that the Holy Spirit is already softening hearts to hear the words you preach on April 30th.

If you ever wanted a definition of 'divine appointment' a CMA Bike Blessing is it! Where else can you get bikers to VOLUNTEER and LINE UP to be prayed over?

This June will be our third...much smaller than yours, but still a very impactful event.

Leaving from Alton/Godfrey 8 AM

I am planning to leave from Ted's Motorcycle World in Alton, IL at 5AM for the 136 mile ride to this event. Anyone who wants to ride along can call me at 618-466-8511 for details. To qualify for this ride you must have two wheels (or three) and a desire to experience the love of the Father through Jesus Christ. You will need gas money too! This is not a church sponsored event. All are welcome.

I'll be at the one at Coziahr's this weekend - but our group will send up prayers for you and your event too.

Oh - let's all pray for this little cold-front to move on through by the weekend, too!

Wonderful Blessing of the Bikes

Southern Illinoisian newspaper - May 1, 2006

Faith for the road: Chrome, Christ come together at Blessing of the Bikes

http://www.southernillinoisan.com/articles/2006/05/01/local/16178648.txt



We were once again BLESSED...at the 14th Annual Blessing of the Bikes. The weather was the only disappointing part of the day. It was worse than any other year...rain, rain, rain...but an extended period of sunshine between 11:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

The turnout was much lower than previous years, but that allowed for more time to chat with old friends and new friends. The highlight was the special Memorial Run for Lcpl Kyle Price and his family and new baby daughter. They were escorted through Jefferson, Franklin, and Williamson counties by sheriff's deputies and almost 100 Patriot Guard Riders.

It was the most humbling experience to meet his mom, dad, new baby daughter, wife, and family...then to pray over his daughter. What an honor.

God was working in big ways on Sunday, as He is every day.
