Bike for Bibles

My name is Donald Green. I am a retired senior, nearing my mid-80's. I am also a cancer survivor. I have been a member of the local YMCA, here in my hometown of Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland and Labrador, for a number of years.

At the beginning of this year, for the benefit of my health, I embarked on a journey across our beautiful island at the YMCA - a distance of 905 KM from St. John's to Port aux Basques.

Then, the thought occurred to me - why not use this as an opportunity to raise funds for The Gideons, an organization of which I have been a long-time member. The passion of The Gideons is to share God's Word with people all over the world, especially in countries where the demands are so great, such as China and Malawi. Hence, my project, "Bike for Bibles."

I have set a goal of $10,000. At a cost of $5 for Scripture, this would enable The Gideons to place 2,000 copies of God's Word in the hands of those still waiting.

I humbly and prayerfully appeal to everyone for your support in this endeavor, especially that of my fellow Gideon members across Canada. There is no greater gift we can give to the needy, hurting people than a copy of God's Word!

Update from Don, February 20th:

"As of Friday the 17th, I have biked 212km. Many thanks for your words of encouragement and your donations towards this special project. Very much appreciate it. God Bless, Don"

  • I am Chasimba from Malawi, the pastor of Last Church, but I had no Bible. It was my prayer to God to give me another Bible because the one I had was torn apart - and today God has answered my prayer. This was the Bible I was using.

Im touched by your ambition. Your story and mission is an encouragement to me. May God reap the glory as you attain your goal. 'The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.’ - Numbers 6:24-26

Be blessed mister Green, Psalm 103 1-5 Praise Yahweh, my soul! All that is within me, praise his holy name! Praise Yahweh, my soul, and don't forget all his benefits; who forgives all your sins; who heals all your diseases; who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies; who satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Hi Uncle Don! I just saw your Facebook post on your Bike for Bibles campaign! Suzan posted it I think. Looks like you don't have any donations yet, so I'll be the very 1st to chip in at $20. I'm not sure how to send it though! E-transfer maybe? Let me know! E-transfer would probably be the easiest way! Glad to see that you are keeping in shape, both body and mind! What a creative idea! If possible, I would also like a tax receipt made out to me, Nadine Hollett, and sent to my address at: 17 Prince of Wales Street St. John's, NL A1C 4N1 Hope to hear from you soon! Nadine :)
