Many Cuban pastors we work with travel long distances on foot and on public transportation in order to minister at the two, three or even more churches and mission stations they are responsible for.
A bike allows a pastor to accomplish more by reducing his travel time between his home and the churches, and helps him visit more people from his congregations. It also makes family errands such as grocery shopping and taking the kids to school much easier and quicker.
And, just as importantly, it will be a great encouragement to a tireless worker, who makes less than $20 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.
Pastor Angel Morales wrote us a thank-you note recently 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.”
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.”
We have delivered over 50 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
In thirteen years of ministry in Cuba, ACTION has been blessed to establish ministry partnerships with many denominational leaders, who are all assisting us in selecting the neediest pastors to receive these bikes.
The deliveries take place among a number of denominations we work with, so if you have a preference that your gift go toward one of the specific groups listed below, please email me at brian (at) actionusa.org and I will make sure your specific designation is carried out.
Thank you and God bless you for your love and concern for Cuban pastors!
Groups that are receiving bikes:
Baptist Convention of Eastern Cuba
Christian Pentecostal Church of Cuba
CIMPEC (the national pastors’ and ministers’ association)
Open Bible Church
