Greetings from the island community of Sabula, Iowa. Back on March
13th, I was in Columbus, Georgia and I visited with my friend, Rev.
Charles Hasty at the
First Presbyterian Church
. They have a video
ministry and Rev Charles wanted to do a video interview of me to be used
at a later date. The editing and post-production is done and the
finished product was posted on YouTube yesterday. It will be shown
at the church during the services this weekend.
Tuesday morning, March 27th, I'll be heading out again. I'll be
traveling Northwards along
the Mississippi River through Dubuque, Iowa and Prairie du Chien,
Wisconsin to Lansing, Iowa (near the Minnesota State Line). After
visiting with some friends in Lansing, I'll be traveling Westward to
From Decorah, I plan to ride Westward across Iowa to Nebraska. Once in
Nebraska, I'll be visiting some of towns that were torn up by the bad
tornadoes back in April. After Nebraska, I'll be doing the same thing
in Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri. Some of the towns that I plan to
stop and try and lend a hand are Upland, Nebraska, Baxter Springs and
Hammond, Kansas, Joplin, Missouri (return visit), and El Paso and
My plan after Arkansas is to head Northward to St. Louis, Missouri and
then head Eastwards across Southern Illinois and Indiana to the
Cincinnati, Ohio. From Cincinnati, I'll be riding into Kentucky where
I hope to hook up with the
Christian Appalachian Project
maybe volunteer the rest of the year and possibly over the Winter.
If C.A.P. doesn't work out, there is another ministry in Georgia that
I might want to check out and maybe volunteer with. From Sabula, Iowa
to Lexington, Kentucky (where C.A.P. is headquartered), my tentative
route is about 3,000 miles (4,800 km) long.
The next trip update should be posted sometime between May 31st and June 07th.
