Many Cuban pastors we work with travel long distances on foot and on public transportation in order to minister at the churches and mission stations they are responsible for.
A bike allows a pastor to accomplish more by reducing his travel time between home and church, and helps him visit more people from his congregation. It also makes family errands such as grocery shopping and taking the kids to school much easier and quicker.
And, just as importantly, a bike is a great encouragement to a tireless Gospel worker, who makes less than $30 per month on average. The gift of a bike will be a motivation to “keep working for the Lord” even in the most difficult of circumstances.
For example, Pastor Angel Morales wrote us a thank-you note which said:
“I will use this bike to the fullest extent to serve Jesus. With my salary, I could have never afforded to buy this bicycle.”
Pastor Leiner Carmenate wrote:
“This gift is an answered prayer that for several years my wife and I have lifted to the Lord.
ACTION can purchase and deliver a durable, high-quality bike to a Cuban pastor for $169.
This amount provides the best bicycles available in Cuba, which are normally imported from China (a country which knows a thing or two about bikes). By Cuban standards, they are “top of the line.” Many of the bikes are purchased in the larger cities and then delivered to remote areas.
We have delivered over 100 bikes so far and are eager to help more pastors. Won’t you join us in this worthy endeavor?
When you partner with us in this special project we will send you a picture of the pastor receiving the bike you provided. Denominational leaders we work with determine the neediest pastors to receive these bikes.
The deliveries will take place among a number of denominations we work with, such as:
Baptist Convention of Eastern Cuba
Christian Pentecostal Church of Cuba
Open Bible Church
CIMPEC (national pastors’ association)
