Over two years ago, Crossroads Founder, David Mainse, was diagnosed with cancer and given two years to live. Today, his health has greatly improved, his energy is back, and his doctor calls it, "Jaw-dropping remarkable!" David believes God has touched his body in a miraculous way, and he decided to make a statement with the Ride of Your Life! It was a crazy idea that he had, to ride his bike all the way from Florida, USA to Port Dover, Canada!
And guess what? That's exactly what he did.
Along the way, he met up with a couple of groups - The Victory Riders and The Faith Riders. The Faith Riders is a motorcycle ministry that was established in 2002 at the First Baptist Church in the Mall in Lakeland, Florida. It has grown into a team of dedicated believers who would go with and on their motorcycle to share the gospel to anyone who would listen.
Both ministries have grown and expanded all over the United States and are made up of people who are from all walks of life, sharing two passions: Jesus and motorcycles.
David spent his first night at a community called St. Augustine. This is the oldest, continuatual occupied establishment/settlement of Europeans in all of North America. The mission there was established by the Augustinian Fathers, whose hero was of course, St. Augustine.
St. Augustine started as a very unbelieving Atheist who had went through different stages as a young man because he was a very deep thinker. He made a statement which David quotes in this clip - Our heart is restless until it rests in you.
Here is David's challenge for you: read up some of St. Augustine's quotes.
When was the last time you read something that was so heavy that it made your head hurt? It is then when one will develop mental muscles. St. Augustine's wisdom will help you develop some of that muscle and deepen your relationship with God and people.
