AN ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO FIGHTING POVERTY

WHERE THERE IS SICKNESS, WHERE THERE IS HUNGER, WHERE THERE IS SUFFERING, THERE IS POVERTY

WE WORK TO TRANSFORM LIVES AND COMMUNITIES BY CREATING PATHWAYS OUT OF POVERTY

We believe that poverty precedes a world of evils; human trafficking, child labor, disease, malnutrition, etc. Many of these issues are solved when people escape poverty. Thus, our primary focus is poverty alleviation.

We also believe that free enterprise is one of the best ways to address poverty. This is why we focus on creating opportunities that empower people to start and grow their own businesses.

Love people. Take care of widows & orphans. Feed the hungry. Clothe the naked. Care for the sick.  

Jesus

“In dealing with poverty here and around the world, welfare and foreign aid are a Band-Aid. Free enterprise is a cure.”   

Bono

I invite you to join us this Sunday at Discovery Church Prescott

It has been great to have our daughter live close to us for almost a decade … now that she has moved away, it is a reminder more than ever to love the ones your with while they are with you.

California Coastal Trail

Biking sections of the California Coastal Trail gets put on the list.

(half moon bay section the CCT)

Its time to start investigating what sections of the CCT to ride in the next couple of years.

This page of stevelummer.com will be dedicated to mapping that route.

The California Coastal Trail (CCT) is a network of public trails for walkers, bikers, equestrians, wheelchair riders and others along the 1200-mile California coastline. It is currently more than half complete. Coastwalk California is a volunteer organization that advocates for completion of the Trail.

(Muir Woods to Stinson Beach)

Here is the county by county map for the CCT – (click on the county to view the trail)

For example, here is the Mendocino County map section 5

Skull Valley Loop Trainning Ride For Raigbrai

This morning to celebrate Independence Day a few friends and I left Preskitt on our road bike and did the Skull Valley Loop.

This map show a clockwise route but we did it the smart way and did it counter clockwise.

Distance: 52.8 miles
Elevation Gain/Loss: 4016 feet

The loop is an amazing scenic, fun, challenging 53 miles of what every roadie likes.

Here are just a few pics of some of  Arizona’s finest miles.

Up from Kirkland junction.

Robert Janice and Becker coming into Skull Valley this morning @ 7:00 am.

Just after reaching the Iron Spring summit.

Taking a little break climbing the “Spars”.

The Skull Valley Loop is a truly a gift.

MILES OR SMILES

A friend of mine told me the other day that with “road biking you get the miles but in mountain biking you smiles”.

He was so right with that statement for the most part , except for today I got both.

Today was my first 75 mile road bike day and as I was riding toward the 75 mile goal I looked around me at the surroundings.

Wow – miles and smiles all in one ride!

Really enjoying the different kind of experience road biking brings.

Also, I’m gonna need to kick it up a notch based on the  week long Itinerary for the Ragbrai ride this summer.

Day 1 — 64.2 miles    4,946 climb
Day 2 — 65.4 miles   4,798 climb
Day 3 — 70.9 miles  1,784 climb
Day 4 — 56.1 miles    1,246 climb
Day 5 — 57.5 miles   3,294 climb
