I believe in the excellent programs of Christian Encounter Ministries (CEM) and the work they are doing and that is why I am participation in this year’s 24-hour Agony Ride. Please join me in raising funds to help this ministry.
All money raised will help troubled young people enrolled in the discipleship and counseling program at CEM, where they receive an education, counseling, Bible study, and discipling, as well as training in life-skills. The Ranch has been helping kids since 1970 without receiving government funding.
Please be my partner and support this worthy cause with a per-mile or flat pledge. Even though my weary body and sore muscles are not tax-deductible, your contribution is.

You might be able to go further than me this year, but you will be hurting a lot more afterwards!

Luke, You are doing GREAT. You have the heart of a true champion. TO GOD BE THE GLORY. Chris
I am SO proud of you, Luke! Be wise, be careful, be safe, and remember that Jesus has perfectly fashioned your muscles and mentality to do only that which He has purposed for you. Continue to honor Him in that with diligence and hope, and He will use your offering to His greatest glory!
Hi Luke! We are supporting you! Matt says he will donate 200 extra if you beat dad ;) (jk, but he will do 50!) Don't die!
My mind is blown that you are still biking, as I am writing this I'm going to bed! I'll see how far you've gone in the morning, see you then! you won't see me though...
Hi Luke! I bet you're SO TIRED! And I hope you have a great time. :)
You got this Luke! As you ride just imagine how much harder this agony would be if I was riding in one of those carts attached to the side of your bike (although I hope the mental picture of that lightens your mood in the harder hours hahaha) so proud of you!!! Just keep pedaling!
Yay! you got this! keep it up!
Praying for you, Luke! May God be glorified in your efforts today!
As Mark Twain said, "Learn to ride a bicycle. You will not regret it if you live." Keep riding and may Jesus be your strength! We're praying for your safety and endurance!
Hey Luke! I told you I'd send a message and now I have, I like what you're doing and I am and will support you all the way! See you tomorrow! (Maybe... ;D )
Remember you are a testimony to Jesus Christ! Craig
