Join Bishop Farr as he travels to across the Missouri Annual Conference in support of the Mozambique Initiative. The purpose of the ride is to raise money to purchase motorcycles for United Methodist pastors in Mozambique. In remote areas that lack good roads motorcycles are the most common, practical and economical form of transportation. Pastors serve multiple charges, and motorcycles will allow them to get to their churches more easily. For the Missouri ride, supporters are encouraged to donate per mile ridden. Funds raised will go directly to purchasing motorcycles for Mozambique pastors. Learn more and donate at www.moumethodist.org/mimotorally. 

Riders may join for all or part of the tour leaving from the Gathering in St. Louis at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 29 and arriving at Missouri UMC in Columbia on Wednesday, October 2. The route for the journey will travel through all nine of our Missouri Conference districts.
