The open doors and open hearts revealed what we were quickly realizing: God is in this!

In the summer of 2013, I felt God tell me: “50 states, $1 million for global youth ministries.” Since our maiden tour in 2012 we had only done two tours, both in Florida. After that call, however, we expanded to other states. By 2021, we had led cycling tours in 30 different states to spread awareness and pray for global youth ministries.
When an opportunity for us to do a scouting trip in Alaska came up, we could hardly believe it.
Friends from church had family in the Anchorage area, and were a Godsend in allowing us to pursue every lead for our cycling tour. As we stopped at church after church, we were blown away as pastors shared that they too were cyclists and were eager to have our team stay with them. The open doors and open hearts revealed what we were quickly realizing: God is in this!
