On Sunday, 1 October, a Bike Run co-hosted by MP Michael Bagraim and Patrick Rolleston from Israel On Our Minds — an official ministry of Desire of All Nations Church in Ottery Cape Town under Pastor Russel van Wyk — was organised to celebrate the successful campaign where the ministry raised funds for a Magen David Adom Medicycle to be used in the streets of Jerusalem.
The theme of the campaign, ‘Time Saves Lives’, describes the purpose of the Medicycle which is fully equipped with all medical equipment used by qualified and trained medical personnel to easily navigate the narrow streets of Jerusalem to reach the scene of accidents, terror attacks, and other medical emergencies to shorten the waiting period for medical assistance.
In partnership with Mark Hyman from Magan David Adom SA, Israel On Our Minds embarked upon this campaign to fulfil their biblical mandate to love and support the Jewish nation. The purchase of the Medicycle demonstrates that love and support.
Jewish Bikers from Free Chapter Cape Town and Christian Bikers from Chariots of Fire Biking Ministry rode out from Cape Town to Aquila Private Game Reserve in Touws River, where they were hosted by Searl Derman to a wonderful lunch and a ‘Save the Rhino’ tour.
Everyone was unanimous in their praise of the wonderful experience of joining together to support the Jewish nation.
