Memorial Day Ride to Cannon Beach

Ruah Riders, Longview Chapter.
Subject: Outstanding Day, Fantastic Ride

Hello Everyone:  What a great Memorial Day we shared yesterday!  We gathered together at 10:00 AM at Old School Choppers. Present was the largest number of people/bikes we have ever had on a "Run," 23 motorcycles, 28 people, plus the owners of a BMW sidecar, and a Trike.  The Old School Choppers parking lot was full.  Due to the number of bikes, we divided into two groups.  I pulled tail with the first group, and what a sight to behold going down the highways.  Our journey led us through Mist, stopping for a break at Burkenfeld.  Then on to Camp 18 for lunch, and a good time of fellowship.  After lunch we proceeded to Cannon Beach, and Ice Cream!  We spit into three groups coming home, some via the Oregon side, and some via the Washington side.  A special thanks to Bob Johnson, Road Captain, for personally phoning every person on our mailing list, and more.  Though E-Mail notices are sent for Ruah Riders upcoming events, and rides, nothing takes the place of personal contacts.  Others, like Paul Owen, helped a couple from their church finish a home project Sunday afternoon to enable them to participate in our Memorial Day ride.  I hope to see Justin, and Jessica return.  Three Cross Country Cyclist's from Vancouver blessed us with their presence.  Paul, and Buck served us well stopping on-coming traffic so we could make left hand turns crossing roads, and highways.  Big thanks to Bob Johnson for leading group #1, and Jerry Braden for leading group #2.    Many of you invited friends. It was a privilege to meet Bob's Son, and Daughter-in-law from Nashville.  Dorothy even invited a total stranger she was speaking with at Old School Choppers to come, and he did!  Our continuing growth, and outreach depends on members like you, and the sacrifices you make in serving God, and His people.  I feel so privileged to belong to our CMA Chapter, and to have friends like you.  Memories to last a lifetime.

Washougal MX Ministry - July 25,26,27

Hello all,
I am excited for this awesome opportunity for CMA to reach a new generation of motorcyclists at the 2009 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross races at Washougal in July.  I want to thank everyone who has agreed to serve with us, without you we would not have this nationally impacting ministry opportunity. Alan and Dixie Moore have been especially helpful in establishing a relationship with the owners/promoters of the Washougal MX track.  Steve Schiller, Washington 's Fastlane Rep has also been instrumental in helping organize the logistics for CMA's involvement at Washougal.  
Our goal at this event is to truly serve the Huffman family by doing an excellent job and embodying the mission of CMA by being available wherever we are needed, by doing so we hope to open the door to serve again next year with greater numbers.  We have been told several times that this event is going to be physically demanding and will include being on our feet for up to twelve hours a day in the hot sun, in dusty conditions with loud exhaust noise and have minimal breaks.  This process will repeat itself on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  We are still communicating with the Huffman family about the details and will keep you informed about what to expect.    
I would encourage you to follow the 2009 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship series.  I will be sending out updates about the series, riders, teams, tracks and race results.  It would be helpful and important to be informed about this series so that we can relate with the crowd and make it easier to minister to them.
Here is the information about round one:
Here's a video wrap up of round one:
I am excited to meet all of you and work as a CMA team at this year's AMA Washougal Motocross race.

Prayer request

These are our good friends from Church & CMA. Please lift them up with Love & Prayer.
Hi Sheila,

We got word this morning around 9:30am, that Annie's son has died after he rolled his pickup truck. We are now in Chico, Ca to help make all the necessary arrangements and to have a service for him. His name was Jeff May and he was just 34 years old. We had a long trip down here, after rushing home with the travel trailer and packing up the car & driving down here. We will probably be here most of the week. Please pray for Annie, as she is taking it hard.

Thanks for your prayers!!

Weather was good, Bike show & Bike games were fun and the Ministry was awesome! We were able to minister to alot of guys there, and will be doing follow up with some who are being released soon. Praise God for this opportunity. We will be there again next year.

Hi Everyone:  On Memorial Day, NEXT MONDAY, May 25, Bob Johnson will be leading a chapter ride to Cannon Beach.  Enroute we will be having lunch at CAMP 18.  Meet at Old School Choppers, 1440 Industrial Way, Longview (Next to Les Schwab Tires) at 10:00 AM.  The forecast is for good weather; this should be an enjoyable day.  I'm looking forward to seeing many of you.  By the way, my trip to Los Angeles, and back was great!  Since I was driving, I met alot of interesting people at rest stops, etc.  It was nice to see my Son, his many friends, and the college campus.  Thank you for your prayers.  I hope many of you have pre-registered for the Washington State CMA Rally.  After May 20th, you will need to register at the Rally site in Ephrata.  Try to make our RIDE this coming MONDAY, 10:00 AM, at Old School Choppers.  God Bless, George
