Peace Road 2016 in Portland USA
By FFWPU USA
There was a lively spirit in Portland, Oregon as local families held a Peace Road Rally on July 23. About 25 riders rode from the Holy Ground on Mt. Tabor to Peace Park.
This year, young members of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU), led by Daniel Stump, organized most of the program with support from their families. They had set up tents at the beginning and end for registrations and refreshments.
“We were blessed with good weather, for it rained last year on the ride,” said Portland Family Church Pastor Eric Sylte. “Our Peace Road event has developed from last year, with about twice the riders, and the spirit was very good.”
It takes about 5 miles to reach the destination, but about half of the group decided to ride a longer route to reach the Peace Park. Both groups were able to meet there around noon.
