Spirit Rider starts journey
Lowell White leaves Alaska and begins a 6,000 mile journey
The Spirit Rider is on his way. Lowell White started his divinely inspired journey across the country from Fairbanks, Alaska, to the Florida Keys on Monday. He was escorted by local Fairbanks police and a group of young riders to the edge of the city and waved farewell to local supporters. Each day, he has left a message for his supporters on his website about the journey. Additionally, on Tuesday, Lancaster Mayor, R. Rex Parris was presented with a Spirit Rider bicycle jersey in honor of White and his journey.
White decided to take this trip, after he says God settled a message in his spirit: “The Holy Spirit is here.” On his three to four month journey, White will be preaching the gospel and serving communities in the name of God. He will not stop until he reaches his destination in Florida. His wife Evelyn and team of supporters are praying that the message is sent forth and for his safe return home.
