“Anything can be accomplished with determination, perspiration, and divine intervention,” says Bryan Ratliff, leader of an extraordinary mission trip.
What? Cycling 3,000 miles from San Diego, California, to St. Augustine, Florida, in thirty days.
Who? Eleven members of Clearbrook Baptist Church of Roanake, Virginia. Four cyclists; two drivers, navigators, mechanics; five support-team members.
Why? To raise gospel awareness and money for the building fund of the church.
As Bryan Ratliff led his team of eleven on this coast-to-coast mission and adventure, incredible encounters, challenges, and spiritual lessons awaited.
Come along with Bryan as he takes you for a ride with stories that will make you smile and others that will make you shake your head. Experience the unique characters they met along the way, personal struggles with flat tires and ravenous hunger, saddle sores and muscle spasms—and opportunities to share the gospel.
The lessons learned on this epic trip can apply to all.
• Obstacles are opportunities to strengthen relationships.
• Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
• God is sovereign in His provision, direction, and protection.
• Climbing the mountains of life requires God’s help.
• God is a prayer answering God.
