Alliance Pastor Bikes to Mali Hospital

Sore and tired, Bruce Overstreet, the Alliance pastor who biked his way across the United States last summer to raise money for the Koutiala Hospital for Women and Children in Mali, West Africa, arrived at the hospital on November 3. Overstreet rode his bike 300 miles from Bamako, Mali’s capital, to Koutiala, where he was met by police and nearly 100 other people on bikes and mopeds to escort him the final few miles to his destination—Koutiala Hospital. Again, Overstreet was met by a crowd. “The mayor was there,” he said, “along with many others who cheered me through the hospital gate.”  
The large gathering celebrated Overstreet’s arrival under a big tent, where he delivered a check for more than $40,000 to Alliance missionary Craig Hanscome, the hospital administrator. The donation will enable Koutiala Hospital to expand its lifesaving, compassionate care, bringing hope to Mali’s mothers and children.
