Kevin, a behind-the-scenes missionary with GFA, shares a story about nine men on three bicycles who were able to share God's love to surrounding villages that they were unable to travel to on foot. Because of their efforts, we're seeing new fellowships being established!
With a bicycle, missionaries can minister to people in more distant villages; pastors can visit more believers during the week and disciple them individually; and energy and time can be spent ministering instead of walking!
Bicycles enable students in remote areas to arrive at school on time and still have energy for studying in evenings. Girls are also less vulnerable to attack when traveling to school on a bike.
Using a bicycle, parents can find employment in neighboring areas when local jobs are scarce. Farmers and venders can easily bring their wares to market instead of hauling items on their backs for miles.
Demonstrate God's love by meeting people's physical needs of transportation—give them a game changer! Bicycles are given to GFA World-supported missionaries. Bicycles are also given through gift distribution programs to help the poor earn a better living or get to school from far distances. Through these gifts, people experience Christ’s love.
