In August 2018, missionary bike tour 73 abruptly ended in Freeport, Illinois when I went into the hospital for AFIB and stage 1 Congestive Heart Failure. I started from Hattiesburg, Mississippi in late April 2018. After recovering several weeks, I started on missionary bike tour 74 with a hope that I would be able to bicycle back to Hattiesburg. I got as far as Dyersburg, Tennessee when I had to go back into the hospital again because of the heart issues. This happened in early October 2018. Between the two missionary bike tours, I was able to cycle almost 5,000 miles in 29 states. Some friends, helped transport me and my recumbent back to Hattiesburg, Mississippi where I recovered.

On December 04, 2018, I went into a local hospital in Hattiesburg as an outpatient for a cardio-version procedure (heart shock) to get my heart rhythm back to normal. With medication, my blood pressure got stabilized. On January 11, 2019, I had an echo-cardiogram to check my EF. I was happy that it went from a dangerous low of 35% to a more normal EF of 55%.

When I started this campaign my hope was to use it to help raise funds to cover my living expenses in Hattiesburg and to also pay my medical bills. Any extra funds were going to be used to get ready for missionary bike tour 75. Because my health had gotten so much better, I was able to leave Hattiesburg, Mississippi on Friday, March 22, 2019. The first goals for missionary bike tour 75 would be to ride across Alabama to see if I could help out with the tornado recovery effort and then head South to the Florida Panhandle (Mexico Beach and Panama City) to help out with the rebuilding after Hurricane Michael.

I met you a couple of days when you passed through Ponca, Nebraska. Good luck with the rest of your trip. I wished that I could have given you more.

It was very interesting hearing about your ministry during the radio service of Salem Lutheran. Please allow this to be a token of my support.

My health has really improved since I have been on the heart medication. I have my last appointment with the cardiologist on March 19th. Since getting the okay to exercise on January 15 and the good news that the EF (Ejection Fracture (percentage of blood going through the heart with every heartbeat)) has gotten back up to 55, which is normal, I have been really walking to get back into shape. I have been walking up to 11 miles or more a day. I am taking my recumbent "Allison" to a bike shop nearby tomorrow to get her repaired.

I am really hoping to get back on the road (weather permitting) as early as March 22nd. I'd like to get on the road before March 27th, which is the 26th anniversary of the start of my ministry. When I do head out from Hattiesburg, MS, my plan is to go to the affected areas in Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi that were damaged by tornadoes in the past month to try and help out with the recovery effort or to at least give the people prayer support. I have some connections with several churches in the affected area especially the First Presbyterian Church in Wetumpka, Alabama. This is before I head to Mexico Beach and Panama City, Florida that were both hit by last year's hurricane.
