Sea to Sea: Serving While Cycling

For Paul Buth, 54, the Sea to Sea tour provided opportunities to serve as well as cycle. In Yakima, Wash., he helped load furniture and prepared food at a food bank. In Boise, Idaho, he served on the food line at a shelter. In London, Ontario, he served at another shelter. “It fulfills me and gives me pleasure,” he said of his service. “I like to give dignity and respect to people.” Buth, a member of Sherman Street CRC in Grand Rapids, Mich., also volunteers with similar ministries at home.
