Two CU alumni, Jason Briggs and Derek Stambaugh, are biking this summer from the Pacific to the Atlantic with stops along the way in places like the Grand Canyon, Colorado Springs, St. Louis, Cedarville, and right here in South Central Pennsylvania.
Why? They are calling their cross-country bike trip Vision On Wheels. It is designed to raise support and awareness for Fisheni – an African village in Zambia Africa. The Women of Vision chapter at Cedarville University has committed to supporting the Fisheni Village over the next 10 years. Their work focuses specifically on health, literacy, and water related issues of this AIDS torn village. By touring the US, Vision on Wheels will partner with Women of Vision and Cedarville University in an attempt to help bring support and awareness for the Fisheni Village.
Their goal is to raise $100,000 for Fisheni. All money that is donated will go towards the community development work and will be applied by World Vision and the community leaders of Fisheni.
CONSIDER YOURSELF INVITED!
As part of the Cedarville family, would you consider joining us to welcome Jason and Derek as they pass through our area? What a great opportunity to learn more about and be a part of this worthy project!
Lord willing, they will be stopping Monday, July 2 at about 10:30 am or soon after, in my town of Elverson, PA which is right on PA Route 23 (Bike Route S) near where Lancaster, Berks and Chester Counties meet. They plan to stay for about an hour, have a mid-morning break and a bite to eat, and share with us their vision for the Fisheni project. It promises to be a short, but meaningful and fun time for everyone in your family.
If you can make it, a reply to this e-mail would be appreciated, but not necessary. I know this gathering is impromptu and during a weekday, but I thought even a small group of CU family would be a great encouragement to them.
Here are the details:
Monday, July 2, 10:30 am
Stoltzfus Enterprises, Ltd.
26 E. Main Street
Elverson, PA 19520
There is parking in the rear of the building, along the street and at the Methodist Church two doors down.
