As I think about Bike Out Hunger, it seems this is more than a ride from Ballinger to San Antonio.
It’s an opportunity.
For many people, hunger around the globe and even in our state is something too large for them to wrap their minds around. Everyone thinks the entire planet should have enough food to eat. Hearts grieve for children near and far who go without basic sustenance. But people seem to be at a loss of what to do.
Bike Out Hunger has given people an outlet to do something. We’ve seen it time and time again. As riders have asked people to give to the offering in honor of the ride, individuals have jumped at the chance without hesitation. During the ride, a lady in a convenience store gave one rider a few dollars to feed hungry people. A cyclist riding down the street stopped by me and gave me $20 to help the hungry.
People care about hungry people and want to help. Bike Out Hunger has helped some of those people express that compassion in a practical way.
Praise God for their actions and prayers.
