In March of 2010 I had the great honor of ministering in the East African nation of Uganda. We ministered to hundreds of Pastors and leaders by day and held outreach meetings at night. During my ten days in Uganda I spent time with each of the pastors who had come to the conference. As I listened to their stories, hearts, and dreams they also told me of their great hardships. Many of them travelled from great distances on foot, cramped in vans, taxis, and on the back of hired motor bikes.
These pastors came from six nations. Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi, and Congo. While listening to their hearts and seeing the need to empower and encourage these pastors, I began to pray about what I could do to make their lives and ministries more productive and easier. I returned home from this trip and encountered something that these African pastors experience on a daily basis. I had cerebral malaria and typhoid fever.
As I was in the hospital recovering, I found myself dreaming of helping at least one of these pastors with transportation needs, During a time of prayer, I heard the Holy Spirit speak to my heart. He simply said: “Motorcycles For Missions” and the dream was born.
By the end of 2010 we were able to give the first five motorcycles away to Pastors in Uganda. In 2011 we expanded our expectations and were blessed to give 30 motorcycles to Pastors in Uganda, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Cambodia, Kenya, Ghana and Tanzania. Fortunately, The Body of Christ has embraced this vision with passion and has allowed us to dream even bigger dreams.
To date we have been blessed to provide over 350 motorcycles and a new pickup truck to Pastors and Missionaries all over the world. Motorcycles for missions has become a practical way to show the love of God to awesome men and women who are doing extreme things in the nations on limited resources. In order to make sure the blessing does not become a burden Fathers Heart has also committed to provide the resources for maintenance, licensing, insurance, and in some cases even fuel costs.
The motorcycles are bought locally in each country so that repairs and maintenance can be done easily and cost effectively. On average this dream can become reality for as little as $1,500. This covers the purchase of the brand new motorcycles, initial registration, helmet, and one years insurance.
