Honorbound Motorcycle Ministry!

Honorbound Motorcycle Ministry!

Tomorrow morning around 7 AM Pacific time, 1,200 riders will be leaving Ontario, Ca on the first leg of The Run For The Wall. The 10-day, 2,600-mile ride aims to promote healing among veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all prisoners of war and those missing in action, to honor the memory of those killed in action in all wars and to support military personnel all over the world.The route includes stops at VA medical centers, veterans’ memorials, Veterans of Foreign Wars’ posts, community centers and schools.

The ride is open to everyone and many of the participants are active or retired military.

Finally, about 2,500 riders will arrive in DC before Memorial Day and convene at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to lay a wreathe.

Chaplain Keith Turcotte, Chaplain R. Duane Gryder and Head Chaplain Curtis Hubbell, along with several other Chaplains will be the Chaplain Corps for The Run For The Wall. They are there to offer Spiritual support and help assist those who break down or have accidents along the way. Sometimes they are needed to be available to just be a listing ear to those that are hurting and seeking healing.

Please remember to keep the Chaplains and everyone that is making the ride across country in your prayers! Pray for safety, and healing for each rider on the run.

(3 of 11)Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are in the midst of an extended ministry trip, spending three weeks in the Carolinas doing outreach, had one week home. We repacked and have been on the road on our bikes since Mothers Day, we want be back until sometime in July. Already, we have traveled up to the Chicago area for a Bike Blessing/Biker Weekend. Sharing the message that we can be more than a lighthouse! We can be a life saving station. We have spoken in churches, bike events, joined with Run for the Wall for many days, helping to lead 600 veterans to the Vietnam Wall in Washington, DC. Trying to minister to whomever the Lord places in our path. We have over a Month before we are back in Florida. Please keep us in prayer; we leave W. Virginia tomorrow headed to New York for The Americade Motorcycle Rally and the following week Laconia Motorcycle Rally in NH.

Recently our Pen FL District Assistant Superintendent Ed Russo sent out a great newsletter. It was about how the church needs to be more outward focused.
Pastor Russo made this statement”. Today, America is a land of lost people.” This statement cannot be truer! We are out on the streets and see the lost and hurting people. We meet people every day that have not heard that Jesus loves them !

Thank you, for your prayers, we need your prayer covering. Thank you, for your financial support, we need funds to keep us on the road. Please don’t forget about us, our support has dropped several hundred dollars, per month since the beginning of the year. If you have committed to supporting us monthly, please be faithful, the Lord will bless you in return. We are continuing to trust God and do the work we are called to do. If you are not supporting us monthly or can send a onetime offering, it would be so appreciated.

God Bless you all!

Run For the Wall

// May 27th, 2010 // No Comments » // News

For several days Keith and I have been going across country with The Run For the Wall, the 22nd year of the event. This is a Veterans ride to bring awareness to Prisoners Of War – Missing in Action. This ride started on May 19th in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and will end May 30th at the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC. Keith and I were not able to join the ride until the stop in Wentzville, MO Tuesday the 25th. This is to promote healing among all veterans and their families and call of accountability for all prisoners of War and POW/MIA. Keep us in prayer as we complete our mission! Welcome Home
