Ride for Love, Hope and Purpose

by NightShift

Our mission statement revolves around some pretty strong words. At NightShift we’re on a mission and the journey is an exciting one. This month, we have the huge honour of embarking on part of that journey together with Surrey’s Freedom Bike Church, as together we ride for Love, Hope and Purpose on the 2012 Recovery Ride. Recovery Ride 2012 On the morning of 21st July, we will be setting off together from Surrey as a biker group on the first leg of our over 3000 km road trip through British Columbia and Alberta. We hope to be sending daily updates on our adventures, as we head first to Williams Lake, then Prince George and on to Fort St John, where we will visit the NightShift Care Village before completing the rest of our ride schedule. The ride is in support of people struggling with addictions, and to raise public awareness and funds for the Care Village, our long-term therapeutic centre. The Care Village is a place of love, hope and healing, founded on biblical principles, where all people can find respite from their everyday challenges and support in their search for a renewed sense of purpose. Join us – there’s still time to sign up for the ride! Come with us on the road or through our blog posts. Share in the adventure. We pray that the hearts of those whom Jesus Christ has touched will be open and that any spiritual walls or obstacles will be removed so they might receive the gospel and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. We pray that new contacts and relationships can be forged over the course of this trip and that His will and His plans are accomplished through what each one of us contributes. We pray for a safe ride for everyone involved. “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn and provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor” (Isaiah 61: 1-3 NIV)
