Pastor Jahansuz (pictured) ministered in six different villages, but since he had no means of transportation, his effectiveness was limited to however far he could walk each day.

Twice the Mobility, Twice the Blessing

Pastor Jahansuz was the pastor of six fellowships in six different villages. The GFA-supported pastor tried to visit every believer, but the villages were in some of the most remote regions. As such, there was no form of modern transportation. Pastor Jahansuz had to walk almost everywhere. The pastor felt burdened when believers asked him to visit their home for prayer and encouragement but couldn’t make the journey.

Although Pastor Jahansuz tried to encourage every believer, it was impossible at times. One particular village was located five and a half miles away from his home. The pastor began to pray for the Lord’s provision.

The Great Provider

The Lord listened, and He provided. Pastor Jahansuz’s prayers were answered when he received a heavy-duty bicycle. Finally, the pastor was able to do what he wanted: minister to his flocks.

Now equipped with a bicycle, he can minister to each of his congregations–and his area of ministry has nearly doubled!

“Since the pastor did not own a bicycle, he struggled a lot,” Abarja, one of the believers said. “We live in far places, and due to that, he could not visit us. But now, by God’s grace, the pastor is able to visit us and is encouraging us to grow in the Lord.”

Pastor Jahansuz’s bicycle brought immediate blessing, both to his ministry and life. Before, the pastor was only able to visit those within a six-mile radius, but now that range has almost doubled!

Not only does he provide transportation for any in need, but Pastor Jahansuz has also been able to visit and minister in five additional villages with the bicycle’s help. Now, many more people are hearing of God’s love.

Through this bicycle, Pastor Jahansuz can more easily minister to the believers in his area and bring the love of God to so many more. Supporters like you made this story and countless others like it possible. Thank you!
