moped justice mission.

Most people get excited about making plans for the summer. Activities like camping, boating, bike riding, laying out, eating ice cream, swimming, no homework, lemonade on the front porch, campfires and friends take over our thoughts and consume our time for days on end.

For Brady and Jon, summer looks a little bit different. Summer means mopeds, justice, and a mission. A "road trip" of sorts around the country, riding mopeds/scooters, and spreading the word about the injustice of human trafficking and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

For differing lengths of times, I went to college with these guys: Brady Mulder and Jonathan Stockeland.

They are embarking on a journey that could teach me a thing or two about humility and standing up for what I believe in. I'm not particularly close with either of them, so I don't know the story firsthand, but that doesn't mean that it's not a story worth hearing...and following for the summer. You should take a couple of minutes and read their story for yourself:

These men have given up their summer to ride around the United States on mopeds/scooters with the intent of  having conversations with people, being intentional about community, and spreading the word about a horrific injustice that plagues the world and our own country. Please take the time to read their story and pray for them this summer. And if you're impressed with what they are doing, don't applaud them for it - I think I can safely say that they aren't looking for credit or a standing ovation. Instead, give God the glory for putting such a mission on the hearts of these guys and for giving them the means to tell others. 

This is a link to a specific post on the Moped Justice Mission blog that shares a few more details about their travel plans and some frequently asked questions about why they are doing what they are doing. If you're not interested in back reading the blog via the link I listed at the beginning of this post, at least take a look at the one posted in this paragraph. Then, pray that God would continue to bless and use them.

You can also follow them on Facebook to hear updates and see pictures from their travels.

Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow."
