Today begins a six month bicycle trek across the US and Canada for my New Zealander friends Kel & Sharon.
I originally met them in Scotland years ago when I lived in Glasgow (they were leaders at the ministry college I attended), and in recent years they lived in Lithuania (pastoring a Vineyard church) and I've traveled over there on art ministry trips connecting through creativity with them.
Towards the end of the this month they will be cycling into Idaho and spending a few days in the Boise area. Kel writes poetry about their travels and experiences cross culturally and often books public and private poetry and storytelling gigs where he can share this with others.
We've planned a gig for him Monday June 26 from 7-9pm in Star, ID. If you or anyone you may know would be interested in coming to this very unique kind of event the detail info is below:
Coming to Idaho!

11048 W. Box Canyon St.
to read some of Kel’s poetry go to:
Part time poet and wannabe wordsmith, Kelvin Fowler was born in a southern New Zealand village and grew up loving running, nature and dirt-track speedway.
A call to the nations’ minorities have been paramount to his life. He has been blessed enough to count among his friends transvestites in Australia, drug addicts in Mexico, a husky in Canada, malnourished kids in the Philippines, alcoholics in Scotland and orphans in Lithuania.
For 14 years Kelvin and his beautiful wife Sharon were interceding through the legacy of the Soviet Union and planting a Vineyard church in Lithuania’s port city of Klaipėda.
They are currently on a big adventure that includes bicycling 8000km across the USA and Canada. He is calling this trip: The Gloria Rides Red Bicycle Tour. You can learn more at: http://bicyclewithwheels.weebly.com/
The night will feature a chance to experience Kel's poetry live (which has been written throughout the years of his travels and experiences around the world), hear about what is on the horizon for he and his wife, along with opportunity to bless them with some financial offerings to send them on their way to their next destination. *so if you feel led, come prepared and we will have a way you can discreetly donate.
Some snacks and beverages provided.
This will be a NO CHILDREN event.
