I want people to take what God has blessed them with and use that blessing as a gift to give to others.

Within the pages of Mark A. Yeaton’s new book, Elephant on the Menu - A Cycling Venture Across America, ($19.99, paperback, 9781498470773) readers will follow the journey Mark took pedaling across America during the summer of 2012, the third hottest summer in U.S. history. This story shows how Mark, his wife Sherry and son Kendall, benefitted over 5,000 people for years to come by raising funds to put a clean water well in a Kenyan village. Avid cyclist Mark, along with family, raised funds for the International Disaster Emergency Service (IDES), an Indiana based Christian relief agency. The book chronicles the cross-country trip and will raise awareness that everyone can make a difference in this world to help others. This book is about taking passion, teamwork, and stepping out on faith in an effort to draw attention and support to the need for clean water in Kenya.
“My hope for readers of my book is to get them to think about using their talents and skills to help make a positive difference in their community, state, nation and world,” states the author. “I want people to take what God has blessed them with and use that blessing as a gift to give to others.”
