Pastor Benjamin has the only car available for our group of people!
Pastor Dan doesn’t even have a motorcycle. Before I arrived in Kenya, we had raised enough funds to purchase a used motorbike or car. However, the debacle with customs regarding my two pieces of checked luggage (they charged me $275 per bag), most of that $1,000 set aside for my transportation needs was used up for unexpected customs fees in the various countries.
Pastor Benjamin is a very busy man. Not only is he the pastor of many churches, he transports parishioners, friends, and family members to wherever they need to go.
What this means for me is that I’m showing up an hour or more late to my small Bible study groups everyday. Pastor Benjamin helps me translate so that the people will understand. Because he’s so busy, half of the meeting he spends outside on the phone solving problems.
There are three study group members that have already decided to leave the group because of the inconsistent time element. They have deadlines too and I respect that, but I’m afraid that I’m going to lose more people as time goes on if there is no positive solution to transport me where I need to go in a timely manner.
We need to raise $1,000 so that I can have independent transportation to meet the needs of my excited Bible study group members and speaking engagements! Public transportation is sometimes available but is not cost effective, especially if looked at from a 3 to 6 month stay here.
Whether you can help with $20 or $500, every gift of love for this mission is appreciated and used wisely! Click here: DONATE
