Tour de Faith rides through the Heartland

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - It's Bike to Work Week, and some college students are working as they bike. "We're on a mission trip, biking from Jonesboro, Arkansas to St. Louis," explains William Rowland after arriving in Cape Girardeau.

It's Rowland's second trip.   He's not an avid biker, and neither are several others on the tour. "I've already fallen...hard...twice today,"  says Heather Underwood," but it's a great experience.   We get to just enjoy the ride, think to ourselves, reflect on life, and grow closer to God and each other."

The Arkansas State University students also stop to do mission work, like cleaning churches and yards along the way.
