All We Need Are Bicycles
We had driven 555 kms of bad road last week — and felt like Paul the Apostle after one of his narrow escapes from the mobs. But that was nothing. The Zambian Church-Planters and evangelists we met cover roughly the same distance on bicycle, four times a year, to reach their neighbours!
The war is over in Angola, landmines largely removed — the land has great openness, and huge need, for the gospel. Our fledgling group of pastors and evangelists, with the most meagre resources, have planted 19 churches over the past five years, biking into Angola!
“All we need are bicycles,” they say. “Oh, and maybe some tents.” They get caught in frequent downpours in this high country, one time tucking into a little shelter that “kept our tops dry, but our feet were sticking outside!”
After its decades of suffering, war-torn Angola has myriads of orphans and amputees. One way of making a difference now is supporting one of the most impressive and committed little mission bands that we have ever met, the Mwinilunga Missions Committee of the PAOZ.
