It’s time for something a little different, but still motorcycle related!
Last month our church had an opportunity to help purchase a motorcycle for an indigenous missionary. Pastor David lives in the country of Liberia, West Africa and was WALKING three hours, ONE-WAY, to reach some of the churches that he was helping minister to.
Our church wanted to do something special for Pastor David, so we partnered with Teamwork Africa to help purchase a Meilun ML125-5. These bikes can be easily fixed in a 3rd world nation like Liberia, and they are very inexpensive to maintain.
Facts About the Meilun:
- Drum brakes
- 2.6 Gallon Tank
- Over 100 miles per gallon (!)
I think this is a neat story to share not only because of the interest in a motorcycle from half a world away, but also because of the purpose of the motorcycle. It will be used to help a Liberian Pastor be able to reach other Liberians for God! How awesome is that? Here is a picture of Pastor David on his brand new bike!
