Winter Fire 2020 ASR Booth

A big thank you to Brother Rick Perry and the New Haven Connecticut chapter for representing Azusa StreetRiders at Winter Fire this year. You guys did an amazing job with the booth.

 

REACHING THE LOST AROUND THE WORLD

As the holiday season is upon us we want to be a blessing to others as the Lord has blessed us. I know we collect our motorcycles for missionaries offering at the National Rally but what if we gave a little bit extra to our missionaries during this time of giving? Think about the blessing it would be to have enough funds to purchase a motorcycle before the National Rally? If every member would donate 10.00 (that’s about the cost of 1 lunch or a couple cups of coffee) we would have a portion of the goal amount of 20,000 for 2020. Here are some pictures of past recipients of our motorcycles.  We are a part of spreading the gospel around the world when we give to support our missionaries as they ride into the back roads and villages that can only be reached by foot or by the motorcycles we donate. Donations can be given by card at azusastreetriders.com or by sending a check to Azusa StreetRiders P.O. Box 188 Warren, OH 44482.
Thank you and may the Lord bless you,

Motorcycles for Missionaries

The Lord is truly blessing the Azusa StreetRiders ministry! We had a record for giving to motorcycles for missionaries this year with a total of 16,330.64. We are able to purchase 3 motorcycles, 1 for Cuba, 2 for Sierra Leone, and 1 for Tanzania. With the Lords help we are on track to have an offering in 2020 for over 20,000. One of next years recipients will be our missionary in Isreal. I am honored and blessed to be a part of a ministry that focuses on our missionaries and the lost souls all over the world! 
God bless,

THE POWER OF UNITY

Over the last year and 10 months the Azusa Street-Riders ministry has been growing and the Lord has blessed us. We have had  96  new members join, several come back,  27 active chapters and 5 Provisional Chapters. The ASR Philippians has enough members that we are working on structuring them to be self sufficient plus we have added members in Thailand. Last year we were able to purchase 3 motorcycles plus the ones that were donated from our ASR members in Canada. We have had an encouraging note from the UPCI missions department and Bro. Mooney. All exciting things going on!
 
When this current ASR board first got together we had a lot to learn. There are 4 strong minded people that were trying to agree on what was best for this ministry but we all had our own ideas of how things should work. In the beginning I think we all wondered what on earth we had signed up for LOL. As time went on and through much prayer and seeking Gods will for this ministry we have learned to humble ourselves and work together in unity. We have learned to set our personal opinions and emotions aside and pray for each other. Psalms 133:1-2 AMP Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil {of consecration} poured on the head, Coming down on the beard, Even the beard of Aaron, Coming down upon the edge of his {priestly} robes {consecrating the whole body}.
 
As this years election approaches we must seek God and pray that whoever is elected the unity of this board will continue so God can work through us to fulfill His will and purpose in this ministry of reaching the lost in a world that so desperately needs to be reached.
 
I love and appreciate every one of you and pray the Lord blesses you as we work together in one mind and one accord to continue the vision the Lord gave to Bro Fred Beall to reach the motorcycle world and support our foreign missionaries with the only oneness Apostolic motorcycle ministry. I am honored to be able to serve this ministry in any way I can.
 
God Bless,
Sis Laureen Theodore

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.

Bind The Strong Man 2019, Myrtle Beach, SC, March 1 – 2

Everything is in motion for Bind The Strong Man 2019 (BTSM). Many of you have shared the flyers on social media and I encourage you to continue to do so. Please help keep this event at the top of your page. You never know who will see it and decide to attend. Our church seats about 250 and we’d love to have full capacity for a powerful all–night move of God! Remember the dates and location…Friday night, March 1, 2019, from 8:00 PM until Saturday March 2, 2019, at 7:00 AM. Christian Life Center, 124 April Gray Lane, Myrtle Beach, SC 29579. 

I’ve had several inquiries about the event name, “Bind The Strong Man.” It comes from Mark 3:27 where Jesus says, “No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.” Before studying the scripture, I had a common misconception about its meaning. As with all Scripture, it must be read in context of surrounding Scripture to gain understanding…The “strong man” is Satan and the “house” is his domain. The “goods” are what he possesses—in this case, a blind and mute man whom Jesus releases from the power of a demon (Matthew 3:22). Jesus cannot use Satan’s power to cast out the demon because He needs to bind Satan in order to free the man.

This is what we strive for and what we hope to better understand after Bro. Hurt’s teachings at the BTSM 2019! Remember, the public is invited and everyone is encouraged to attend and bring guests. There is no charge! We encourage all ASR Members to attend as this kicks off our annual riding and witnessing season! 

Chaplains, BTSM 2019 will be especially helpful to you! If we expect to see changes in our lives and the lives of those for whom we pray, we need to know more about prayer and how to become a true Prayer Warrior! Fasting sets the foundation for this event! Personally, I will be doing at least a 3–day (possibly longer) water–only fast the weekend before BTSM 2019. Please join me as there is power in numbers and let me know you’re participating so I can pray for you during this time. Towards the middle of February, I’ll be posting more on the two ASR Facebook pages (“ASR Friends” and “ASR Members Only”) to remind you, but please mentally prepare for fasting now…it helps! 

The response for financially help fund BTSM 2109 from the ASR membership has been fantastic! Although BTSM is a “nationally sanctioned” ASR event, it is still fully funded by the local chapter of ASR and/or the local church. For this reason and due to the anticipated expenses, we’re asking any ASR member and/or ASR supporter for donations (fully tax deductible). 100% of the funds will be used for direct expenses for the event to include, airfare, meals and an honorarium for Bro. Hurt, plus snacks for the all–night event and breakfast Saturday morning for all ASR attendees. If funds are received above the expenses incurred, all excess funds will go to our “Motorcycles for Missionaries” program. Please help! Any donation is appreciated! The best way to donate is to mail a check to me that’s made out to CLC of Myrtle Beach. Mark on the check for 2019 BTSM. Fred Beall, 3501 North Kings Highway, Suite 103–B, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.

PLEASE RESPOND PROMPTLY SO WE CAN GET FUNDING OUT OF THE WAY AND CONCENTRATE ON PLANNING. 

Thank you and God bless…

Azusa StreetRiders, Myrtle Beach, SC

Additional comment from our National Secretary Bro Tom Thompson

Bind the strong man event:
I would like to personally invite all members and beyond to this event. My wife Renaye and I are eyewitnesses to Bro. George Hurt’s ability to reach God through his prayer techniques. The presence of God was so thick that day it’s hard to put to words. “Amazing” is only one word that comes to mind. He talked to the four of that were in hotel room for little while, then prayed. We were all speaking in tongues and he instructed Renaye to step forward. She did, she walked few steps and he said, “Sister you’re walking!” She looked as if she saw ghost. He told her, “Don’t stop now!” She walked all over that hotel room, kept walking past wall mirror and saying, “I’m walking!” That was first time in 5.5 years that she was even able to put weight on left foot/leg, not to forget first time walking. I urge you all, if you can only attend one event this year, make it “Bind The Strong Man!”
Thank you
