Latest Stories of Impact

The Main Event

My buddy, Slavcho, who is our group ATV guide when we ride, owns the auto service and he agreed to train the girls on how to charge a dead car battery and how to change a flat tire! We were hoping that this fellowship will lead and equip Macedonian 16-19 year old young ladies to become women of character, integrity, strength and wisdom. It was a very successful day and the girls LOVED IT.

Ride A Gravel Bike, Move To Latin America!

In May 2022, Matt & Jessica faithfully came on the COGAP2022. They prayed and raised funds for a ministry in Latin America called INCA LINK.  During this gravel bike ride, they learned a lot about the ministry from the representative on the tour with us, Luke S.  Every time Luke shared testimonies, prayer themes and stories, you could truly see the wheels turning in the minds of the Crossons.

Xtreme Challenges

An XCC is three days of challenge and inspiration for men out in the wild that creates a deep spiritual experience.

“Nanga Imara Na Thabiti”

This year at camp, two of our older boys got in a big fight. The fight had to be broken up, and instead of participating in camp the following day, these two boys had to stay back and do chores. These are the moments that remind us of exactly why we have camp. It is an opportunity not just to have fun, but to learn and to grow. In the lives of kids all over...

The Old Man And The See Train

As a young boy many years ago, I read the famous book "The Old Man and the Sea." Now, at 70 years of age, I’m the oldest of our riding team. We have been named the “See Train” because we are the slowest of the four riding teams on this tour. We get to see things. Thus the play on words in my title. I am the old man, and we are the See Train.
