Adventist Motorcycle Ministry (AMM) of the Guntersville, Ala., Church teamed up with Sabbath Keepers Bike Ministry for the 2021 Sturgis Bike Rally in South Dakota. More than a half-million peo- ple showed up for the 81st year of this event from August 6-15, 2021. Joan Price, AMM and Guntersville Church member, says that their ministry “tried to follow the guidelines found in Min- istry of Healing, page 73.” It reads, “Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Savior mingled with people as one who desired their good. He showed sympa- thy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, ‘Follow Me.’”
The AMM group, composed of about 20 people, passed out approximately 5,000 books, pamphlets, and CDs. The Great Controversy is the leading book that was dispersed. Price continues the Ministry of Healing quote, “We need to come close to the people by person- al effort; if we would give less time to sermonizing and more time to personal ministry, greater results would be seen.”
Next to their booth were two giant replicas of the beasts of Daniel 7 and Revelation 17. These replicas drew a lot of attention from the old, young, and even the media. As people stopped to look and take pictures of the beasts, members asked them, “Do you know what these mean?” and most would say “no.” Members then handed them liter- ature that explains what the beasts stand for, and started several meaningful con- versations. “Many seeds were plant- ed on this 10-day event, and we hope and pray that the Holy Spirit will water these seeds and our Father be glorified, and His children find out that He loves them,” says Price.
“We want to thank the Gulf State Con- ference for their support and outpouring of love. We would also like to thank all who donated to make this mission trip possible; God bless you all! Please pray for our ministry and all of the seeds that were planted,” concluded Price.
