“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). My entire life, I have been around individuals that took this phrase to heart – mainly in the way of athletics. The reality was as an employee, coach, or player, you won or lost as a team and that was understood. I am thankful for the experiences I have had in athletics because each team I worked with focused on building a community which allowed every single coach and player to push each other in a respectful and honest environment.
“PRAY vigorously for our missionaries. They will be told countless lies in the months leading up to the ride and countless more during it. We are told, ‘For the Spirt God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.’ (2 Timothy 1:7) The storm is ahead my friends, but, with your help, our missionaries will meet it with joy. And they will not listen to the whispers of the wind. They know, fear, he is a liar.” Kevin Biese

“I wanted to give interested riders and support crew members a peek at the nitty gritty of Biking for Babies. What does pro-life really feel like?”
“I know you recognize that we have a messy world, and that mess presents itself in different ways: poverty, starvation, hatred, abortion, sexual abuse, violence, conflict, divorce, loneliness. I think we each recognize that the world needs changing, but the real question is: What are YOU going to do about it?”
“If you went to the March for Life event this year, I sincerely say, “you rock!” But if you believe that is all you are called to do for the “pro-life” cause, then I am here to challenge you…Sweat, bleed, and hurt for the one who feels hopeless.”
