The Amazingrace ride is back again – this time with cyclists pedalling a 300km route, starting in Jeffreys Bay on September 8, to raise funds for Kingfisher FM’s signal and to tell people about Jesus at towns along the way.
This year’s ride will start on September 8 and include stopovers in Thornhill, Loerie, Port Elizabeth, Motherwell, Bluewaterbay, Addo, Kirkwood, Uitenhage, and will end at the Kingdom Manne Camp on Dawson’s Dairy farm, on the outskirts of PE, on September 14. Each day’s ride will be approximately 45km.
Last year a team of seven Amazingrace riders rode 360km from PE to the Karoo Mighty Men Conference near Middelburg, raising approximately R25 000 towards the repair of Kingfisher FM’s signal.
Johan Meyer, who initiated the event last year after being inspired to do so while praying, said with the Kingdom Manne Camp taking place on Dawson’s Farm in September, God had placed it on his heart to cycle again this year, ending a the citywide men’s camp.
Anybody interested in being part of the Amazingrace can do so by praying for it, joining the ride, evangelising with the team, sponsoring cylists or donating material needs for the campaign. Cyclists may join at any town along the route. Riders will wear T-shirts displaying the logos of companies which donate R1 000 or more.
Cobus Fourie of Evangelism Explosion, which is partnering with Amazingrace said that together with local churches they plan to hold evangelistic meetings at night in each town along the cylce route, and see an outpouring of the Holy spirit.
Cyclists will undergo evangelism training to equip them to win the lost (Mark 16:15 — He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”)
All funds raised will go toward Kingfisher FM’s 103.8 signal to enable the Christian radio station to spread God’s further than is currently possible.
Donations can be made directly to Kingfisher FM’s bank account, which is FNB 261010 (Branch), 52430058602 (Account), AGR SOS (Reference).
