INDIANOLA, Iowa—Indianola Regular Baptist Church took the opportunity to witness to participants of the Des Moines Register‘s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI).
The cyclists arrived in Indianola, Iowa, on July 21 to spend the night. The town was estimated to almost triple in size, with approximately 25,000 people coming into town! The church youth group handed out more than 2,000 bottles of water and tracts at the temporary campgrounds around town and had chances to share the gospel. Over 320 people were fed a spaghetti supper in the church fellowship hall. The church also allowed cyclists and their support teams to camp for the night on its large lawn. Seeds of the gospel were planted and, Lord willing, fruit will abound.
