Many church planters are praying for bicycles so that they can take the gospel to surrounding villages in India. Empart right now has a need for 1100 bicycles!
Empart Church Planters are often reaching into several villages or communities at the same time. Often in areas where there are few public transport options. A bicycle may seem like a child’s toy to you, but it will make a huge difference for a worker who is currently walking many kilometres to tell people about the Lord.
“The villages I visit are scattered around a circumference of 30km. I walk with my wife all the way to these villages by foot. She often gets tired and falls sick, which almost stops me from going… now we are blessed with a bicycle which is making it much easier for us to reach more villages” says Pastor Sunni.
“Since getting the bicycle two months ago I am now able to visit 5 new villages and have seen 15 lives transformed… Thank you so much, it is making a huge difference in my ministry,” says Pastor Gautham.
For $125 you can empower a Church Planter!
Watch the video to understand Why Bicycles are Critical to Church Planting:
Jossy Chocko, Empart Founder and International Director, explains:
“This is transportation. This is not for hobby. This is their life. And for Empart church planters, this is the means by which they take the gospel to the nearby villages. Meet Goutham Lal. Goutham Lal has an amazing story about how God brought him to the Lord. He’s been praying for a bicycle that would enable him to take the gospel to the neighboring villages faster and quicker. Look at the smile on his face, it tells everything – how God has answered his prayer.”
Friends, that is an incredible investment that we are able to make into the Kingdom of God. This tool will enable this laborer of the Kingdom, this servant of God, to reach about 8 to 10,000 people with the gospel and possibly plant churches in each of those villages. That will be such an incredible fruitfulness and harvest for the Kingdom.
I want to encourage you to invest. I want to encourage you to partner with Empart in enabling these church planters to have these bicycles. Empart right now has a need for 1100 bicycles. Would you pray and consider what God will have you buy for these church planters? Will you partner with us in resourcing these church planters? God bless you as you give and pray for these brothers. Thank you.”
I’ve met Jossy Chacko and trained Empart church planters in India. God is doing an incredible work through each of these church planters as they bring the gospel message to thousands of villages in Northern India. Please consider supporting this ministry.
