    Hi Bob, and Annah and Laura!!! Just wanted to let you know that your fans in Missouri are following you and praying for you every step of the way. We are all so proud of you, especially your Grandma and Grandpa, my dear friends Joh and Pat Uebelein. God Bless you and keep you and make His face to Shine upon you. Love in Christ, Holly Holmstrom

  2. Hi Bob, Laura & Annah,

    We are following your adventures and pray for your safety. This is something you can blog about, write a book about and relive well into your old age. What a great story to tell grandchildren someday!

    We pray that all of your needs will be met as you travel the roads. Look for provision in unlikely places. We’ve found that the Lord has a way of providing from people that we never imagined would be givers. Don’t be discouraged by the folks who may have strong opinions about what you are doing. The most persecution we’ve faced over the 8 years in the ministry has been from other “believers,” just keep on and try not to let it wear you down. Having a goal and fulfilling it is a wonderful accomplishment! Be blessed! We love you and your family!
    Mary & Mike Robinson

  5. I hope and pray that your tube issues and other tech difficulties are over. If scientists and technicians can put a man on the moon, surely Walmart, bicycle shops, the encouragement of supporters, and sheer determination can put a Bob on a uni on the West Coast! You go Bob!

  6. Frank and I have been following your adventure since you left Maine. We were so sorry to hear about your problems with the unicycle, but hope you are back on the road and are carrying lots of spare tubes with you.

    We are proud of your determination, your commitment to help others, and your faith in yourselves that you can accomplish such a feat. We wish you the best for the remainder of the trip.

    Philippians 4:13 reminds us that “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”. We will be praying for your safety and for your success.

    Frank and Karen

    We first saw you traveling on your unicycle in South Dakota and were amazed at what we saw right on the freeway. Then… When we saw you again weeks later at a rest stop in Washington state just East of Moses Lake we had to ask about your travels and see if you were indeed the same person. Thanks for telling us your story and sharing your website. We didn’t get back to you to give you a cash donation but we did donate online in your name. Good luck on the rest of your adventure and cycling to raise money to help others!

  8. Woot woot! I would love to read more about your journey. Mad props, and welcome to the Iron Taint Club!
