Yet for us, it’s also so much more than the scenery. I consider the scenery and the enjoyment of the curvy roads a bonus, really. Because when we go out on the road, it’s more than a pleasure ride. It’s a ministry.
I realize that many people who see us out on the road don’t understand the concept of the casket. I also realize that many of those who don’t “get it” will never hear why we do it. Because many of these people pass us on the highway, give us a strange look, shake their heads, and drive on.
One at a time. This is how it’s done. One person at a time, two wheels toward heaven each time. Although I have my own bike now and ride along once in a while this way with D.A. it doesn't take away from the effect of the ministry. Because while the casket draws people to us, God decides which ones D.A. ministers to, and which ones I minister to. Our ministries have merged.
Often times he will start a conversation, then the person will turn and address me and I finish the conversation. Other times it’s solely D.A., or solely me. Then other times we each get someone to talk to. We never know, yet we make sure we’re always prepared. It’s almost like a game.
Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. ~ 1 Peter 3:15, NLT (emphasis added)
