The Orphan Ride

My friend Andrew and his brother Randall are about to embark on a remarkable journey around the world to raise money for a Catholic-run orphanage in Southern India. I met Andrew nearly a year ago when I was heading up the 40 Days for Life in Bellingham. He volunteered for a mind-boggling amount of hours, mainly in the wee-hours of night, which gave me more time to sleep, naturally making Andrew a good friend : )

I learned quickly that Andrew was an avid bicyclist when he asked if he could protest and pray at the abortion facility while using his bike trainer:

Today, I found out that he and his brother will be biking for 2+ years in 25+ countries, some 25 thousand miles across the world for the cause of Life in India. They're calling it The Orphan Ride. They will be donating two years of their time, money and God-given strength and giving 100% of the proceeds to the orphanage. Pretty cool.

Be sure to check out their website for more information, to follow their journey (beginning March 2009), and support their cause by donating, even if it's just a few dollars. Also, keep them in your prayers!
