Journey of Hope

They come from all across America, young men on this Journey of Hope.  And every year when they ride those bicycles through New Mexico, spending the night in Portales, I am overwhelmed by this dedicated group.

These young men from Pi Kappa Phi devote themselves to raising money and awareness for people with disabilities.  From sea to shining sea they ride their bikes an average of 75 miles a day, put on puppet shows, and visit with Americans… spreading genuine encouragement.

I invite you to take a few minutes to look at their website.

Push America – Journey of Hope

A little group from our church has made it a tradition to feed these guys a “stacked supper” every year.  My contribution tonight was ten pounds of shredded cheese and a huge bowl of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

In return, I was treated to an evening of fantastic conversation with interesting, incredibly polite, amazingly focused college students.

Safe travels on your Journey of Hope.  Enjoy that long, long stretch across Texas.  When you arrive in Washington, D.C. on August 2, you’ll have completed an amazing feat… one that you’ll talk about for the rest of your lives. Godspeed!
