"We're out here just praying for people and handing out Scripture, and God is doing some amazing things."
A biker himself, Jim Pitman recognizes a ripe mission field when he sees one. And during Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Florida—with a notorious reputation for raucous behavior and debauchery—Pitman and his team are doing some serious damage to Satan's playground.
The director of CLC Multi-language Media in Pennsylvania, Pitman partnered with Biker Church Europe—a network of Christian motorcycle clubs and associations that distributes the Biker Bible and wants to reach all of Europe with God's Word—to distribute Bibles and spread the gospel to thousands of bikers in town for the annual event.
Biker Church Europe has sent individuals from countries like Sweden, Norway, Finland and Poland to help Pitman witness to the lost.
And they are making an impact. As of Thursday, the group had distributed more than 15,000 Bibles in what is usually one of the biggest party atmospheres in the country.
"It's been amazing. We've seen a multitude of people get saved," said Pitman, whose company distributes Bibles in almost 100 languages. "God has been giving us great opportunities. Biker Church Europe has been praying for years to be able to send people to Daytona for Bike Week.
"Motorcyclists have kind of their own culture. They are a group of people who are loyal to their country and are all about freedom, but very few of them actually have true freedom in Christ. They come together here to rally, and some just to get drunk. But we've had a lot of people pass by and actually stop and ask us to pray for them."
