Memorial Day - Bike Lexington

On a mission to enjoy everything Lexington has to offer!

After searching for bike routes around town we came across 'Bike Lexington' which is a 10 mile family fun bike ride around downtown Lexington and UK's campus. We really didn't know what the day would have to offer but soon enough we would. Over 1000 bike riders came out to enjoy the ride. People of all ages, look at this little guy. He just kept peddling. How cute :D

The weather started out beautiful but the Lord had other plans. Just at around mile 8 it started to down pour. At first I wasn't to fond of the idea of getting wet but after a little while I started to enjoy it. Some times in life you just need to dance in the rain and laugh, we well just danced with bikes!

This was Lara's first long distance ride and she did great finishing 16 miles with no problem! The rain didn't even get in her way at all!

What a ride and what a way to enjoy Memorial Day. The Lord is truly blessing us with health and the ability to explore his creation. May the Lord continue to strengthen us and allow our bodies to be his temples.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. ~1 Corinthian 6:19

Taiwanese BBQ - Bible Study

My journey has been full of trusting the Lord and walking arm in arm with him. Making the decision to moved to KY for the summer was not easy. There was a lot of uncertainty with the decision. However the Lord continued to comfort and support the move. I knew he had things planned for me but what they were I had no idea. Going into this summer I knew he wanted me to focus on my relationship with him. Learning to completely rely on him and build my life completely around him. One thing the Lord has continued to lead me to is interacting with internationals. Shortly after arriving the Lord opened an opportunity to share his word with Chia-Hung. From this conversation he invited Lara and I to attend a Taiwanese BBQ - Bible Study. You would never image the food that they have at these type of events. I'm not sure where they got all the food but they kept bring out more and more. We had hamburgers, chicken, shrimp, steak, pork, broccoli, watermelon, and ... This meal continue for well over four hours. After filling ourselves past full we were blessed with hearing praise music in Chinese. This was an amazing evening trusting the Lord and watching his love shine in different languages. His love truly moves the mountains and crosses the oceans. The night ended with our new friend Chia-Hung receiving a bible. This is his first bible ever and I am looking forward to watching the Lord reveal himself to him. Please keep Chia-Hung in your prayers as he begins to learn who Jesus is and what he did for us.
Revelation 3:20 - Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
