The Leap of Faith

August 18 Update: Praise God! How faithful was He in finishing this work! Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised. - Hebrews 10:23. Thank you for your partnership in this journey; for praying, sharing, encouraging, uplifting and giving. Please continue to pray for the many missionaries who will now be able to travel to spread the name of Jesus and give hope and encouragement to the very precious people of Asia. May God bless you all.

What is the Leap of Faith?

The “leap of faith” happened on July 1st, 2013, because of our love for Jesus Christ. On that day, we, Dany Dias of L’Orignal and Janine Jalbert of Vankleek Hill made our very first skydiving jump at the Gatineau-Ottawa Airport in Gatineau, Quebec, surrounded by family members and friends. This, however, was not our first leap of faith, as the first one was by far the hardest – abandoning everything to something so unknown, yet so freeing – rendering our hearts to Jesus. In a world that seems so dark and full of misery, there is hope.

Being a Christian is certainly not for those who are faint of heart, it takes courage, patience and most of all love.

Both of us are teachers, and each day is given up to the Lord in order to see the tomorrow in every student's eyes and with prayer, this can be easily accomplished.

With this event, we are passionately reaching out to the community, as we have a heart for those who are in the mission field, and need to get the gospel out to those who live in difficult areas. Therefore, we are hoping to buy bicycles for the missionaries to be able to travel from town to town with more ease. A heavy-duty Indian-made bicycle can be a wonderful blessing for $110.00. They are a reliable transportation, easy to repair and allows the spread of the gospel to more people and in more unreached villages. We would LOVE to raise enough to purchase 100 bicycles...we know this is possible with God.
Remember that 100% of your donations goes to the mission field! Thank you so much!

“We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Ephesians: 2:10

About Bicycles

Help Missionaries Go Farther, Faster

Many Gospel for Asia-supported missionaries spend arduous hours walking from one village to another. With a bicycle, a missionary can visit two to three times as many communities in a day. A heavy-duty Asian-made bicycle is a wonderful blessing and only costs $110 each.

Bicycles are also given through the gift distribution program to help impoverished people earn a better living or get to work or school from far distances. Through the gifts, recipients experience Christ’s love.
