Putting Wheels Under the Good News!
How often do we take our wheels for granted as we hop in the car and spin down the road from one appointment to another? In Cuba, transportation is a big problem as cars have astronomically high prices and fuel costs – as much there as it does here in Canada. As a result, pastors and church leaders depend on scant public transportation service to get them out in ministry. Several hours a day can be spent waiting for a bus to come and pick them up to travel where they need to go, including significant distances which must be walked.
In January 2018, we took a step of faith to experiment with the purchase of an electric motorcycle for one of the BIC Church Regional Overseers to use in ministry. I met up with Ramon at their Annual Meeting in October and he recounted what a huge difference having the motorcycle has made in his ministry. In the last 9 months, he has travelled over 8,686 Km with the motorcycle, which works great and runs on cheap electricity in a country that enjoys eternal Summer…perfect for using a motorcycle.
Would you pray with us that that the “Gospel will spread rapidly and be honoured wherever it goes in Cuba” (2 Thessalonians 3:1)? In addition, please consider donating toward the purchase of 14 more electric motorcycles for Cuba, one for each Regional Overseer. They cost $3,000 Canadian each.
Donations can be sent to BIC Canada-Global, 2700 Bristol Circle, Oakville, ON L6H 6E1 marked: CPE-014 Electric Motorcycle Cuba or online – clicking the button below, select the Global PROJECT and use the drop-down menu.
Together we are helping to put wheels under the Good News of the Gospel!
