I am cycling solo from the headwaters of the Mississippi River to the Gulf. The mission objectives are: 1) to meet others with mental and physical disabilities, 2) to use this medium as a ministry, and 3) to be an inspiration, to be inspired and to share the gospel. My challenges have left room for empathy and compassion and given me the desire to push myself and others to be their best. I hope to utilize my love of stories and the people in them to enter people's lives and affect a tangible improvement. I cannot estimate the amount or type of change, but I do know we all are looking for more joy and fulfillment that I believe only the Lord can provide.
When:August 20, 2011 - October 21, 2011 (60 days on the road).
Where: the headwaters of the Mississippi River Lake Itasca, MN to New Orleans, LA ( 1,912 miles).

Mississippi River

I am the heart of many long lost souls.  
I am a river with heart ache and joy.
I am a blur from the highway.
I am berries in the fall.
I am rocks beneath the rushing, cascading water.
I am a river.
I am a comfort to someone having a bad day.
Where the water never stops flowing between the jagged rocks.
I am memories and kindness.
I am lonely in old age.
I am grasping to my ways.
I am a river.
I am Nick’s trophy fish.
I am hidden behind the Pennys store.
I am an old barge under the misty water.
I am hope.
I am a river…. 
South bound.

I wrote this poem in middle school with no foresight of the trip.
