The Tale of the Motorcycle Missionaries!

Eleven Baptists have embarked on a 16-day motorbiking journey from Texas to Nicaragua to help raise funds for a youth sports ministry that serves over 2,000 at-risk children in the Central American nation.

The trip, which launched on Good Friday out of Midway Baptist Church in Pilot Point, Texas, features riders from three different states — Texas, Missouri and Wisconsin — and was organized by Midway elder Bruce Walker.
