Bicycles for Evangelists (94020)
In Northern Ghana, dedicated pastors and evangelists bring new meaning to the scripture verse, "how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news." Because villages are spread out, they must walk considerable distances in order to minister or meet together with other church leaders. Pastor Jacob Wesong walked 4 to 5 hours each way in order to attend meetings with other church leaders.
The Bicycles for Evangelists Project is changing things for Jacob and many others. Instead of tiring by traveling on foot, riding a bicycle cuts travel time and fatigue in half. Now there is more time for pastoring and bringing the Good News of Christ to others. Many leaders who have received bicycles have seen their ministry expand. Not only are they able to visit and minister in outlying areas, they are able to meet other community needs such as transporting the sick to medical clinics.
This vital project is enabling outlying areas to be reached. Evangelists are bringing Christ's love to those who have never heard, and pastors are visiting and encouraging small, isolated fellowships that they would not have been able to reach on foot.
You can be involved in this project by purchasing a bike for a Ghanaian minister. About $60 USD will purchase one bicycle and ease the tired feet of one dedicated worker. Thank you for your part in this effort. Just one bicycle will make an impact on many who will be reached with the love of Christ.
