Bicycles for Tanzania

For the past few years, Earley St Peter’s church has supported the work of projects in Shinyanga, Tanzania, where Bridget and Lesley Green are Mission Partners. In 2023 the youth at our church organised a fundraising initiative in Lent but due to Easter being much earlier this year, the planned fundraising event is in September. However, Bridget and Lesley are visiting Shinyanga and some of the projects there in July. As well as visiting the projects already supported, there are plans to visit further ‘up country’ to see the challenges faced by some of the families with children with disabilities living in rural poverty. They will also see how some of the newly trained evangelists are working in these communities and there is a particular way that these evangelists need support to undertake their new roles.

Bishop Johnson, the Bishop of Shinyanga, has already advised our Mission Partners of the need for bicycles for the 45 evangelists; reconditioned second-hand ones can be purchased for £80. These bicycles are a necessity as the areas covered by the evangelists are very large and rural. As well as spreading the news of the Gospel, the evangelists are also trained in various other ways to support communities on a practical level. If you like to donate towards the cost of these bicycles please make a payment to the following account with the reference ‘BIKES’.
