2020 National Rally Offering for East Africa & India

It never fails to amaze me how much this membership loves to support Missionaries. In addition this is not determined by any organizational affiliation, ASR supports regardless, all they need to know is there is a need.

This year in our Thursday night Missionary service Bro Grimh preached from his heart and all of us were moved by his message. Bro Grimh didn’t ask for any special offering to be taken up on his behalf all he did was talk about his burden.

When presented with an opportunity to give during an unscheduled special offering the response was overwhelming and God moved on our hearts in that service, everyone stepped up to the plate and sacrificed. We were able to raise $7,200.00 for the work in East Africa.

I had a message from Bro Grimh just the other day who wasted no time getting those motorcycles into the field and in hands of pastors who were ready, willing and able to go out and spread the gospel, all they needed was the means to do so. I would like to share that massage from Bro Grimh:

1. Hey Bro Thompson. Were buying this bike for one of our Pastors in India. He’s Pastoring 4 Churches. It’s a 2018 Royale 350cc. Used but in great shape. They wanted $1450 for it but we talked them down to $1200. It goes for $2500

2. We have another 2018 same model we can get for the same price. Heres a pic of that one

3. Also getting prices from 2 more Bishops to get them each a bike! This is the pic Bishop Watita from Bungoma sent me. This is not a Boxer, it’s a TVS 100cc

4. He is at the shop in Bungoma now. We are buying 2 bikes

The mgr I’m working with. We have bought from him before. He gave us a good discount.

5. Just bought this one!

6. Just transferred the money to buy this one! These are sweet machines. Best motorcycles we have bought yet, and we got them for $1200 each.

7. Thank You for your Vision to see increase to the Kingdom of God! This is a Honda 125 cc. It is $1225 brand new off the showroom floor!

This is one of my Sons in the Gospel in India. He is our Bishop in Rajamundry area. He oversees several Churches there and hosts our weekly Bible School class online. Many new Pastors are coming to the Revelation of True Salvation under his Ministry. He is a very short man, but very well respected. I’m going to buy this motorcycle for him. He will be able to handle it very well!

This is our Bishop in the Rajamundry area. He’ll be getting the white Honda Together we are empowering some Very Good Men of God to Maximize their Effectiveness!!!

Thank you Bro Grimh for the opportunity to be a blessing to you and work you are so committed to.

Azusa StreetRiders and Covid 19

I wanted to drop a note of encouragement to all the Azusa StreetRiders Ministry members & friends. This Covid 19 has affected all of us. I know it has been disappointing for several chapters that have had to cancelled their planes for  different Azusa StreetRider events in their areas that had been planned for awhile now.  Bro & Sis Joseph in Charleston, WV., Bro & Sis Thompson in New Straitsville, Ohio and especially Bro & Sister Zerbe in Cedar Springs, MI who I feel so bad for, who has been planning for a long time and were very excited about hosting their first Azusa StreetRiders outreach event. In addition the rest of us members that were thrilled about attending these events, let me just say “God Has This”.

We need to stand fast and waver  not in our resolve to continue to be the Apostolic light to the lost motorcycle community. I know we cannot do everything right now as we would like but that gives us no reason to throw our hands up and surrender to our circumstance and give up. What we need to be doing is engaged in continuous prayer and fasting for our lost brothers & sisters so when were released we hit the ground running.  We can use this time to plan future events in which the lost can be saved. This situation will not go on forever so we need to be prepared.

So if you feel you can plan an event for later this year, which I hope we can salvage a few of these events that were cancelled , let’s get busy and get to work, if not let’s look forward to next year. God is in control and nothing will stand in the way of the church all we need to do is be prepared either to plan an event in your area or plan to attend one. As of today we are still continuing with our National Rally  as planned so all I can say is be there, were only two months out today !

About Motorcycles for Missionaries let’s get creative about how to raise the funds for this years recipient.  Again I know we can just conceded to our surroundings and throw in the towel and admit defeat, that is the easy road. Instead let’s make a commitment to think outside the box and do the best we can do to raise as much as we can in the time we have. That is all I am asking for, is to do the best you can do. When during our missionary service you walk to the front of the church before this ministry and God knowing you did your best, I for one will be proud of that effort regardless of the size of the offering.

In closing I want to say: Keep the faith, stay the course. Our work here is almost done here. What we do here will carry into eternity and all of this will be behind us.

God Bless and Keep You and Yours.
Bro Robert Thompson

Working on the Bylaws

Short note to say that the board of the Azusa StreetRiders along with several others met this past weekend and by the anointing and blessings of God I feel we have a good revision of the Bylaws streamlining the context yet maintaining the fiber and the spirit it was originally written in. We will be posting the revision on the “members only” FB page within a short period of time so the membership has the opportunity to review it before the national rally in July.
