Help Missionaries go farther, faster with bicycles. Help them to reach more people in one day for Jesus.
As much as I like walking, I don’t relish the thought of walking everywhere–not even for one day. I have access to buses, trains, streetcars and taxis. It’s not a problem for me to go to several places in one day to share the Gospel. However, this is not the case for a South Asian missionary.
Transportation can be a real burden for many Gospel for Asia supported missionaries who spend grueling hours walking from one village to another. Check out this video to get an idea of what it’s like not to have reliable transportation like a bicycle and consider how having one would be a tremendous blessing not only to the missionary but to those whom he or she would minister to.
Here are the reasons why having a bicycle would greatly benefit a missionary:
- Bicycles offer reliable transportation with little cost. You can donate a bicycle for just $110.
- Missionaries won’t have to waste precious time walking from village to village. By riding a bike, they can minister to more people.
- Bicycles are easy to repair,making travel consistent and reliable. Parts are readily available and the cost of maintenance is low.
- When you donate a bicycle, you help take the Gospel to more unreached villages.
Just put yourself in the missionary’s shoes. Wouldn’t you prefer to travel to three times as many villages to share the love of Jesus? Two wheels are faster than two feet! Consider donating a bicycle.
