Update on the Ride for Urban Promise Team

Greetings on behalf of the Ride for Promise Team,


The team made it through the mountains and arrived in Banff AB last evening. It’s hard to believe that they have made their way through British Columbia already. In talking with Curtis last night, they were thankful to be in Banff and they were setting up camp for the evening looking forward to some rest and getting ready for today’s trek. Which takes them from Canmore AB to Calgary AB, right in time for the Stampede. Curtis is anticipating a good time tonight with the opportunity to share his story with a group of friends that the Guebert’s have invited. Thank you to the Guebert’s for hosting the Ride for Promise team. We have seen several donations from people in Calgary which Curtis states are from those who cannot attend tonight. Please pray that today’s journey will go well and that God will continue to speak through Curtis as he shares his story of hope.


Below is a link to a New Canadian Media – The Pulse of Immigrant Canada article that was shared on my newsfeed on Facebook. The article titled “Social Housing Shouldn’t Define Me” written by Sam Minassie in Toronto, shares about Curtis, his life story, and the Ride for Promise. I continue to be amazed by the unforeseen open doors that keep coming Curtis’ way as he continues in faith on this journey to share God’s story in his life.

Please don’t hesitate to share this with family, friends, and many others in your circle of relationships. You are our best advocates. Thank you all for blessing Curtis and the Ride for Promise team as well as UrbanPromise Toronto. Our hearts are full of gratitude to each one of you.
