Ben Stephenson, Heather Yoshiki, Grace Stephenson, John Stephenson

Monday night the CycleNEA team ended the second day of their trip biking across Canada, and stayed at my house.

When a Canadian missionary donated a bicycle to high school students David Mensah and Sayibu Imoro, they began the initial work of the Northern Empowerment Association (NEA). With this bike, David and Sayibu were able to reach beyond their own city of Tamale. They traveled to rural schools where they encouraged the poor and struggling students, praying for them and providing physical resources such as food, clothes and money to the needy ones.

May and June 2005, twin brothers Ben and John Stephenson ride from Peterborough, ON to Vancouver, BC. The ride will cover 4500 km to raise money for their friends in Ghana, West Africa. Along the way, Ben and John are stopping at high schools to let students know how they can get in gear.
Check out the CycleNEA website to find out more, and for information on how to donate to improve nutrition, health, women's issues, environmental protection, water and sanitation, and agriculture in Ghana, West Africa.
