Rumble. Vroom. Whoosh! It was the Dakar Rally.

This race was not on a road. It was over hot desert sand in Saudi Arabia.

Some racers got lost. Some broke down. The race was dangerous [dane-jer-us].

 

READ MORE: Frenchman Thierry Sabine started the Dakar Rally races 43 years ago. Racers have driven cars, trucks, motorcycles, quads, and UTVs through desert sands in Africa and South America. The 12-day race now has moved to Saudi Arabia. One-third of that country is desert. It is on a hot, dry peninsula between the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. God protected the Israelites when they wandered in the desert. Read Isaiah 48:21.
