There are many firsts for me this week. First, I have never done a long distance ride, which for me is six days back to back. Second, I have only biked 65 miles, one time. Therefore this is a real challenge for me. I was blessed on my ride today to ride with my husband Mark, and friends Larry and Gary. The Bible says “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. (Ecclesiastes 4:9). When one of us or another struggled whether it was not having the legs for today or a flat tire. We were a Team. The FCBA Team. I have felt welcome into this “Family” from the day that I arrived. We have many backgrounds, many different denominations, but yet we are “One”. One Family working for one purpose. I have heard many say that it is not about the biking. Biking is just a side effect of the #1 purpose. That purpose: Being the hands and feet of Jesus, by reaching out to those less fortunate. I have four more days to finish this week. I have been truly blessed and my life has been greatly enriched by this experience. May God Bless each and every one of my new FCBA Family.
