Greetings Friends and Family!!!
I hope this new year has been full of God's grace and all that comes with it, both adventure and challenge. I want to say THANK YOU to all of you for your support and friendship through the adventures of last year. As this year begins, so do more adventures and I would like to ask you to join me in them.
Last summer, I had the opportunity to ride my bike cross country with the Fuller Center for Housing Bike Adventure. http://www.fullercenter.org/bikeadventure I was so blessed by that adventure and to see how God used you to help many families along the way. It was a great trip and I am still amazed at simple it can be to help someone else with a little time, effort, and generosity. I am hoping that this year can be more of the same. For more information about the Fuller Center for Housing visit: http://www.fullercenter.org/
Therefore, I would like you to consider joining me in this year's adventure! I will be riding a total of 2000 miles with the Fuller Center Bike Adventure through both the Spring and West Coast rides. The Spring ride is March 10th-17th, 2012 from Nashville, TN to Jackson, MS. This is a 400 mile one week ride complete with a build day where we will stop and help a current Fuller Center project. http://www.fullercenter.org/bikeadventure/springride
The West Coast ride is July 13th-August 12 from Seattle, WA to San Diego, CA. This is a four week 1600 mile ride with two build days, one of which will be at the San Diego Fuller Center, where the ride began five years ago. http://www.fullercenter.org/bikeadventure/westcoast I will be joined on the West Coast ride by my Aunt Sher!!! I am thrilled that we as a family can help other families!!! http://www.fullercenter.org/bikeadventure/meettheriders#Sher
In its five year history the Fuller Center Bike Adventure (FCBA) has raise over $500,000 to eliminate poverty housing! This year we are hoping to raise another $200,000! However, it is my personal goal to raise $7,000. I will be riding on behalf of the Greenville (PA) Area Fuller Center. This will be the first Fuller Center be established in Pennsylvania!!! I am really excited to be helping families close to home. This Fuller Center is still in the development process and needs $2000 more in funding to become fully functional. I would like to raise that amount as well as an addition $5000 for them to have for building projects. Getting connected with the Greenville (PA) Area Fuller Center is a story in itself of seeing God at work. I am looking forward to seeing how God continues to work in Northwestern PA through the Fuller Center.
I would like to ask you to consider joining with me in this adventure, so that families in Pennsylvania can have a place to call home. Here's a few ways to join:
1. Please pray for the Greenville (PA) Area Fuller Center as it in the development process. That all the things between their current position and the beginning of building projects would be completed and established for the glory of God.
2. Please consider donating funds. Keep in mind that all of your donations go to the Greenville (PA) Area Fuller Center and are tax deductible. You are not paying for me to ride my bike, I will take care of that.
