Team Faith Spokesmen

Team Faith Spokesmen rides for a cause at this year's Hotter 'N Hell Hundred.

It's a quote you may be familiar with,"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine you did for me," Matthew 25:40.

That bible verse is the foundation of the work Faith Mission and Faith Refuge try to accomplish.

And come Saturday, you'll see it in action.

This year's Hotter 'N Hell Hundred will feature a new team: Team Faith Spokesmen.

Their goal is to raise awareness and funds for their facilities and programs which provide beds and shelter to thousands of people every year.

And for rider Vicky Payne, who dealt with poverty as a child, the motivation to ride is personal.

"We didn't always have a place to stay. We stayed with strangers, we slept out on picnic tables occasionally," she said.

Chris Varnier also rides for Team Faith Spokesmen.

He says there's purpose in his pedaling.

"We have seen folks go from complete brokenness to wholeness and that's very exciting to be a part of that," he said.

Varnier says just like the ride he'll endure on his bike, the roller coaster ride of poverty is tough.

"You'll feel pretty good at first and then when it looks like you don't want to keep going, you'll remember why you are doing it and that will be plenty motivation to press on."

Pressing past finish line in hopes of moving those out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.
