Sabbath Keepers Motorcycle Ministry Makes Friends in Bonney Lake

November 01, 2012 | Lisa Ulrich

The Northwest chapter of the Sabbath Keepers Motorcycle Ministry (SKMM) hosted their first public literature booth at Bonney Lake Days on Aug.19–20.

Bonney Lake Days is a local festival that annually features a parade, 5K run, car show, live music, fireworks show and several local vendors.

The SKMM booth offered free literature, photographs on the motorcycles, children's activities (including temporary tattoos) and prizes. Approximately 100 books and Bibles were given to booth visitors, and lots of new friendships were formed as ministry members talked with motorcycle owners and enthusiasts.

Several non-attending Adventists who visited the booth expressed delight that the ministry exists. One Adventist, who relocated to the area, received a full set of Spirit of Prophecy books and a Bible because he missed these books after they were left at his previous address.

The ministry made friends with neighboring vendors and had spirited discussions with clergy from other churches who came by the booth. Some SKMM members who donated blood at the Bloodmobile were treated by nurses to bandages that matched the blue and yellow of the ministry's patches.
