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).

Post Trip

Post trip: after completing the trip, I plan on writing a book. It might be some time in the future when it is finished: the plan is to work and write on the side. The book will highlight different disabilities Americans face on a daily basis. In addition, I want to look at the coping mechanisms and support structures that may or may not exist for people with disabilities. By telling these stories, I hope to inspire a large number of people. The book's mission will be to share the message that disabilities pose problems, yet we should offer the abilities we do have. Rather than letting life pass us by because you, or others, think you cannot accomplish a task (or it might take too long), we should offer the world our best.

I also hope to capture the cultural diversity that occurs from the headwaters of the Mississippi (Lake Itasca, MN) to the Gulf (New Orleans, LA). I am looking to create a few survey questions that I will be asking along the way. So, if you have any sociological experience, please post your questions in the comments box after clicking on today's post.
