Hundreds of Seventh-day Adventists rode their bicycles on the main streets of Mexico City as part of a youth event to promote health and hope.

More than 500 cyclists, young and old, pedaled through some 21 miles (34 kilometers) of the city, while hundreds of others walked and passed out thousands of books, magazines, and gift cards for free online Bible studies.

“We wanted to mobilize our young people, their friends, and our young-at-heart members to be active and take part in new and attractive ways to witness in this great city,” said Enoc Ramirez, local youth ministries director and event organizer.

Ramirez scheduled the event for the last Sunday of the month, the day that Mexico City authorities close main streets for people to ride their bicycles, run, or walk. In this case it was on Jan. 31.

An avid runner himself, Ramirez said it was wonderful to see young children from Adventurer and Pathfinder clubs on their bikes as well as our adults from 90 Adventist churches across the city taking the time to testify about living healthy while sharing their joy in the gospel.

“Our members shared hope to everyone in the city by distributing more than 2,000Steps to Christ books, praying with those who needed prayer and sharing hugs,” Ramirez said. Read More . . .
