Rolling Thunder 2019

 

So thankful for the opportunity to attend Rolling Thunder 2019 with some awesome ASR members. Robert Thompson, Tom & Renaye Thompson, Jeremiah Hayes, and his father Delbert Hayes and new member Norman Knight. We started out meeting up in Clarksburg, WV. We met up for dinner with ASR members Brother and Sister Joseph and Nathaniel and Brandy Benedum for some good fellowship. On Saturday morning we had a very nice scenic route picked out for a ride over to Rockville, Maryland. The ride was great except for the area’s where the road disappears from your GPS lol. Man  you can have that crazy DC city outer city traffic. Sunday we were up very early to ride over to the Harley Davidson dealership to line up for the escorted ride in to the pentagon. It was already a sight to see so many bikers at the dealership.
 Jeremiah Hayes said it best when we were in Washington DC  for Rolling Thunder “If you can experience the level of patriotism and respect for our armed forces and veterans that was present during this event, and it not affect you, something is wrong. It was truly an unforgettable moment, and at times, it was hard to hold back the tears thinking of so many that have sacrificed for the freedoms you and I to enjoy every day.
Fighting back tears is what we all did on our escorted ride to the pentagon. As we left the Harley Davidson dealership in Rockville MD all streets were blocked for us the entire route. On the sides of the roads and over every bridge were people waving to us flying American and military flags. You just couldn’t help getting emotional. It was truly a real blessing to take part in this awesome event. Which broke an all time high record that they estimated between 1.3 to 1.7 million bikers praise God that’s just totally awesome. I’m just glad I was able to be a part of this wonderful event with some of my ASR family.  Thank you  for letting me be your Road Captain on this journey. And a big thank you to Jeremiah Hayes for coming to the rescue of a down biker and fixing his bike.

Cortland, NY 1st Biker Sunday

I would like to start off by giving a big thank you to Brother Erick Smith, Pastor Brad Dutcher and Abundant Life United Pentecostal Church of Cortland, NY. Thank you again for allowing ASR to be apart of your church and hosting a biker Sunday.  We had a great time in fellowship and riding over that first weekend in May. Brother Erick Smith did a very good job with his first biker Sunday. He did this all while having complications from his wisdom tooth surgery on Thursday. On Saturday Brother Norman Knight joined us for breakfast along with Pastor Brad Dutcher. We had a very good time in fellowship talking about our past. Both Norman and myself talking about how we came into ASR. By the time we got back from riding it was time for dinner it was already a long day and at the restaurant I could tell brother Smith was having some major pain as his one side of his mouth was completely swollen. Early Sunday morning I get a text from Brother Smith saying he is in the ER do to his complications. At first I’m like oh boy the host is not going to be at his biker Sunday now what. Well we still have to have church. I said there is a guest speaker so all is good. When Norman and Myself got to the church Pastor Dutcher informs me that  brother Smith is at the hospital. I told brother Dutcher yes I know. Then I hear these words. brother Dutcher asked if I could speak. As I just looked at brother Dutcher with out hesitation he said good LOL I then said but you do know that I am not a minister. Brother Dutcher then said that’s ok I am fine with it you have a testimony that needs heard. Great now in my head I’m in panic mode LOL. as I sat there on the pew in panic mode. I started to ask the Lord to give me the words to say. Talking about ASR is easy. It still hard for me talking about my testimony, my story. Well the Lord gave me comfort as I first talked about ASR and How I first came into ASR. Then as I was speaking the Lord gave me the direction and words to speak on bitterness and how we are not promised tomorrow.
I did not Know at the time that there was someone that needed to hear that. Because they were dealing with bitterness and the loss of a child. After the service we talked on healing. Even though I only spoke for 10 minutes which felt like an hour. I was glad to hear the anointed massage by Evangelist Joe Rapaglia. He gave us a very powerful message.
Thank you Rick and Barb Medley who rode up from Southern Ohio to be a part of the 1st Biker Sunday of Cortland, NY.
It was a great weekend in fellowship, riding and church. And we signed up a new ASR Member Norman Knight. Who is going to help brother Smith in getting New York their first ASR chapter. Looking forward to seeing the outreach and lost souls saved in Cortland, NY. Can’t wait for next years Biker Sunday.

WinterFire Conference Update

First off all of us should take a moment and thank the Lord for Brother & Sister Mcleod, Brother & Sister Perry and all of the members of the New Haven, CT Chapter for a Job well done presenting the Azusa StreetRiders Ministry at the WinterFire conference. Job Well Done!
Bro Thompson, ASR National President

“THAT WORKED” by Brother David Mcleod

Azusa StreetRiders display booth
backdrop

We, as Azusa StreetRiders, were privileged to have an opportunity to explain our Motorcycles for Missions Ministry to numerous Oneness people during the 3rd week of February.

The venue was the major WinterFire Conference that occurs annually in the Hartford, CT area. It’s the premiere gathering of Apostolics for the Northeast Quadrant of North America.

It was also the first time to utilize our new ASR display backdrop.

Have a look at the attached photos. It’s 10 ft wide and 7ft high. The “face” of the unit is fabric and our favourite “Azusa Biker” is the visual centre point. The fabric is attached to the frame using Velcro. It takes about one minute to either set it up or take it down. Simply remove the display from its wheeled container and pull it apart. It unfolds and raises as it opens

People walking past us would literally stop and stare. It’s that effective!

This would give us an opening to say something like “Do you ride?” And the conversation was off and running.

I got to meet many of the New Haven, CT chapter members as we were on their home turf, so to speak. They’re to be commended for the ease with which they were able slide into biker related conversations. I’m convinced that these guys are on a 1st name basis with about half the population of New England! Hugs and “Biker Handshakes” were the order of the event.

Chapter President, Jeff Banores, has some really good plans to promote the ASR message in his area. President Jeff now has the contact information for five prospective members. We probably wouldn’t have found these folks had it not been for our WinterFire participation.

We’re looking forward to riding with any of the New Haven members who are planning to attend the National gathering this summer.

Please allow me to share some insights gathered in Hartford.

There are numerous District Conferences, Men’s Conferences, Youth Conferences, etc that fall under the umbrella of our various Oneness organizations. These events are where we will have an opportunity to meet prospective members and raise our profile.

The display is guaranteed to attract attention. We have the “common denominator” of our shared interest in all things “motorcycle.” In Hartford, we heard things like:

  • “My husband rides a motorcycle. He’s not as regular with his church attendance as he should be. I wish that he could meet you people.”
  • My sister-in-law lives in Texas? Do you know if you have anyone in Lubeck (sp) that could contact her? She sure loves her Harley.”
  • “We have two guys in our home church in New Jersey that belong to the CMA.”
  1. Our new “May I Pray for You” patch drew a lot of attention. People were asking us if we had any for sale. I was also asked if we had “bumper stickers” of the patch. – Good idea.
  2. The personal connection of the New Haven chapter members made a big difference at this conference. Chapter Presidents,,,, no one knows your area better than you……. Get out to your District events and see what will happen. We’re the largest “Oneness Apostolic Motorcycle Ministry” in the world. Let’s be scriptural. “Everyone Win One” would double our membership. It was an honour to represent our Ministry at this event. Both Brenda & I were ministered to by the anointed preaching The conference organizers did a great job on tis years ministers.
