The Need

Bikes and Bibles Fund, Charl van Wyk

It's well-known among Christian workers in Africa that the church is "an inch deep and a mile wide."  

Without access to books and written materials, many believers don't even own their own Bible!

 

There are willing evangelists and pastors who would take the gospel to nearby villages who haven't heard it yet, but they need transportation. 

Description

Empowering and Equipping Pastors

ITMI partner, Charl van Wyk makes frequent trips to Zambia and the DRC Congo, where he encourages the local believers - who many times don't have contact with the outside world due to the estrangement that comes with a war-torn infrastructure.

One especially effective delivery item has been bicycles for local pastors and evangelists, enabling them to bike to an unreached village nearby and share the gospel with them.

The Bikes and Bibles Fund goes to directly purchase bibles and bikes for ITMI partner, Charl van Wyk to deliver, empowering African evangelists and pastors to evangelize and disciple more people within their newly-expanded reach.
