Addiction in the Family – A message of Love and Hope

dave-godfreyAs I bicycle across the country, I have had several wonderful opportunities to share the story of my journey with my son’s addiction and the powerful testimony of my transformation experiences from it.  I finally took the opportunity to record one of these talks in order to share it with those who were not able to attend these talks or have the chance to hear this message.  I hope you will find this message insightful and inspiring.

I have been truly blessed on this Cycling for Recovery ministry in many ways.  As I shared in last week’s post we have had numerous informal interactions along the rides that have all been significant God moments. This week we had several others which were all God.  Each one of these serves as a reminder that God has me on the road with a definite mission and purpose. I praise Him for the opportunities he has given me to serve and glorify Him on this journey.

As I move through Chicago this weekend and on to Detroit, Pittsburgh and New York, we are perilously close to cutting this mission short as funding and support has not quite kept up with our daily requirements.  While I know that missionaries often return home earlier than expected because their funding runs out, I am hoping that you have experienced something in this ministry that would move you to support me to the end of this ride.  Our objective is to raise at least $2500 before next weekend.  If we are able to achieve that outcome, I am confident we will be positioned to see this ministry through to New York on October 2.

If you able to contribute, your donations can be made to:

Thank you for your encouragement and support up to this point.  It has made a huge difference in the lives of many!
