Every day, thousands of followers of Christ walk many miles. That may not sound like much.. unless you take a closer look!
It is hard to walk through jungles where there are poisonous snakes and sharp sticks and plants- especially when you have no shoes.
Or, consider the missionary who is weak from lack of proper food, rest and care. Or the aid worker who has supplies to carry, that weigh them down.. and that are weak from malnutrition and also, have no shoes to protect their feet.
What would take hours of walking in harsh conditions, and severe heat, could be made easier and safer, if they had a bicycle to ride. In America, having a bicycle is commonplace. Mostly all children have at least one bike. They are for fun and sport. But to a poor missionary or Gospel worker, it means a safer, faster, more efficient way to reach that many more people, with the truth and hope, of Jesus Christ.
We aren't there to suffer for Him in such a way.. can't we at least help those who are?
Maybe it would mean one less cappuccino on the way to work, or not getting an extra case of soda for the week. Either way, we in America mostly have all we truly need and if we admit the truth, could afford to give up a few things we normally just want, in order to bless those that have so little.
"The least of these, my brethren.."
Let us consider the Words of Jesus-
Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, "Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave Me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took Me in: Naked, and ye clothed Me: I was sick, and ye visited Me: I was in prison, and ye came unto Me."
Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we Thee an hungred, and fed Thee? or thirsty, and gave Thee drink? When saw we Thee a stranger, and took Thee in? or naked, and clothed Thee? Or when saw we Thee sick, or in prison, and came unto Thee?"
And the King shall answer and say unto them, "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me."
Gospel for Asia is one of few ministries who truly give the full 100% of donations to the cause to which it is given. So, you can give in full faith and confidence, that your money WILL, in fact, be buying bicycles for the missionaries and Gospel workers.
Please, let us join together to bring joy and safety to those precious, bold souls who are willing to risk their very lives, for the sake of the Gospel and Great Commission!
Thank you, and may God bless you.🌹
