I started this fundraising campaign on December 30, 2021 as a way to try and acquire donations so I can stay on
the road with my ministry Pedal Prayers during 2022. On March 27, 2022, I
will celebrate my 29th year of doing ministry by bicycle around the United
States. Since February 19, 1993, I have crossed the United States 17
times, cycled almost 290,000 miles (464,000 km), been in every state but
Alaska and Hawaii and in three provinces of Canada, helped out after
about 62 natural disasters, built and rehabbed homes with the Fuller
Center for Housing and Habitat for Humanity, and spoke almost 1,620
times at churches .
I feel very strongly that GOD called me out to be his feet and hands on
the road as a living example of James 2: 14-26 and Matthew 25: 31-46.
This is why I consider myself as being a "Missionary Servant Evangelist"
instead of being a regular evangelist. I have a cycling jersey that
says "In HIS Draft and Service". The url to my ministry website is
http://www.pedalprayers.org and it has been online since 1998. This is
only my sixth year of doing online fundraising.
Mission Trip 79 will start December 31, 2021 from Frederick, Maryland. I am
looking at being on the road for at least six more months.
Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, I haven't had many chances to speak at
churches along the way but this hasn't stopped me from giving
counseling, food assistance, and prayer support to the people who I meet
along with being a silent witness to the thousands of motorists who are
on the same highways with me through the signage at the back of
"Allison" (my short-wheelbase touring recumbent) and also the messages
on my cycling jerseys. I will update this campaign as often as I can by
updating this message. God Bless all the donors to this campaign.
Thank you in advance.
In HIS Draft and Service,
Rev Hans (the Cycling Rev)
