May 5 at approximately 8 p.m. parishioners of St. Peter's Episcopal Church were having a meeting at St. Peter's when a gentleman showed up. The man informed the group that he was a traveling minister, who turned out to be Johannes Myors. Myors, who has covered more than 230,000 miles since 1993 on his bicycle, was on his way through to his next destination. He saw the cars outside and decided to seek assistance from the church. He was looking for shelter due to the extreme cold anticipated for the night and sleeping outdoors. The folks at St. Peter's were going to provide the shelter for his use. He was very happy to be receiving the help he needed for sleeping that night, when it was revealed that the shelter was currently being utilized by someone else. Regardless, Myors was welcomed and he received some food and a voucher to the Theatre Motel for his stay overnight. Also known as "Rev. Hans" or "The Cycling Rev.," Myors cycles across the U.S. doing evangelical and missionary work, often assisting in place hit by natural disasters.
