Pray for Brother Todd Storey

I would like to ask that all of the Azusa StreetRiders family, friends and members continue to pray for Bro and Sis Storey and their family. Many of you know they were rear ended by a car while he and Sister Storey were riding on his motorcycle He has been in the hospital for weeks now and I just received a text he just came out of “another” surgery.

Please keep an eye out on our website and FB pages as to updates. In addition were attempting to put into place a medium in which we might be able to help in another way, by giving an offering for the family.

Thank you

It is the favorite time of year for the ASR membership!!! It is time for the national rally!! Good riding, tasteful eats, great fellowship, and tremendous church is the normal adventures of every ASR national rally. The annual business meeting will be held on Saturday, August 4th and will be including the election for ASR international secretary. I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for the opportunity that I have had over the past 2 years to serve each of you and this ministry. It was an honor to have your confidence to vote me into this position and it has been an honor to serve as Secretary. I have decided that, at the current time, it is most profitable for my family, the ASR, and myself to refrain from seeking another term in office due to various responsibilities of “life” and the ministry that I am involved with inside of my home church. I ask that each of you join me in continuing to hold up the current and all future ASR boards in prayer. Now, it’s rally time; let’s get ready for church!! May God bless and keep each one of you.

Sincerely thankful,
Michael Luttrell
ASR International Secretary

Azusa StreetRiders – Philippines

AZUSA STREET RIDERS PHILIPPINES

Big things often have small beginnings. Though started in 2009, the Azusa Street Riders Philippines was recognized as an official ASR chapter in 2017. It has now a current official count of 42 members.

The main purpose of this ministry is to help local churches with evangelism. They visit local churches in different provinces to help the local church pastors promote the UPC church in the area. They have been to different provinces in the northern and southern parts of Luzon to promote the ministry and at the same time share the gospel. During evangelism rides, the riders give out ASR leaflets to motorcycle clubs and tracks to people they meet. They also marshal big and small events under UPCI Philippines, like General Conferences, Pentecost Sunday, and other events. As the ministry grows, updates and changes were made to further enhance the ministry. As we are firstly soul winners, the star award was implemented as mandated by the ASR International. Two members of the ASR Philippines have been given this award.

The Azusa Street Riders Philippines grows continually by the grace of God, and all for the glory of God.

In Memory of Rev Bishop Ompad

BISHOP CELEDONIO OMPAD
Azusa StreetRiders Member – Philippines
Posted on behalf of our Brothers and Sisters
in the 
Philippines our prayers are with you

On July 17, 2018, many were saddened by the news of the passing of Rev. Bishop Celedonio“Donnie” Ompad. A great man of God, and one of the pillars of the Apostolic faith in the Philippines. From being a fisherman, to becoming a fisher of man. He was truly a man full of wisdom and indeed a well-respected man of faith.

A week-long funeral service was prepared at the Philippine Evangelism Center, where BishopOmpad was the resident pastor.Stories of memories with our loving Bishop were shared; eulogies were told; word of encouragements were heard; songs were offered.

The interment was held on July 24, 2018. Headed by Azusa Street Riders Philippines, together with the other Riders group, escorted the procession from the Philippine Evangelism Center in Makati City to the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City.

A final salute was given by the pastors led by his brother, Pastor Gadiel Ompad. As the Azusa Street Riders Philippines’ adviser, the riders also gave their final salute by raising their helmets.

We cannot deny that as human beings, it is sad and painful to lose someone. But the Lord is there to comfort the heavy-hearted. He had departed from this earth, but we know he has arrived in heaven.The battle has been won. You have fought a good fight of faith. You will be deeply missed, Rev. Bishop Celedonio Ompad. Your legacy continues here.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Bar


Proper mirror positioning can give you the fairest view of them all.
Most riders position their mirrors to provide the same rearward view. Resulting in a duplicated image and a much narrower overall view. By angling mirrors outward, you the rider can expand and optimize the rearward view while still seeing everything behind.
You wouldn’t ride with a blindfold on. Nor would you ride with blinders to Obscure your peripheral vision (like horses wear). Yet many riders keep their right and left mirrors adjusted in a way that provides the narrowest view (including an excellent view of their elbows). Hum is this you?
Next time when you get on your bike, and before you pull away, take a careful look into each mirror. What do you see? Is the view in the left mirror virtually the same as the view in the right mirror? How much of the scene behind you can you see in both mirrors? If the scene is largely duplicated by each, try angling both mirrors outward to expand the width of your overall view. The ideal adjustment allows you to see a vehicle directly behind in either mirror but with minimal overlap of that image. You should have a distinctly different view to the outside of the mirror now as well. The left mirror  should reveal more of the space adjacent to your bike on the left (where cars pass), and the right mirror should expand the view of the space to the right of your bike (where merging vehicles appear from), significantly expanding your total rearward view.
While we are talking mirrors, it’s a good time to consider what other drivers see. Car drivers have a rearview mirror mounted on the windshield that provides exactly what the name suggest; a rear view. Cars also have two side – view mirrors mounted to the outside of the vehicle one on the left one on the right side. Unfortunately, dispite the name. those mirrors are typically adjusted inwards to take in the same rearward view as the inside mirror. That means that vehicles – including our motorcycles – are easily obscured from the driver’s view. Be aware as you ride alongside other vehicles; if you can’t see their reflection in their side mirror, then they can’t see you.
