Bicycles and Cooler Boxes

Over  last year we  assisted three people find some employment by providing them with “pre-used” bicycles. This year in response to this request we have already set up Eugene with  opportunity for work with a bicycle. Thank you to Jonathan for providing the bicycle. The bicycles have been mainly used to deliver newspapers. The difference in attitudes and self image of the individuals who have benefited has been wonderful to see.

I also have a need for a cooler box for some one who would like to sell food on the side of the road. If you have one that you have no further use of please bring it to the church.     Tim  082 823-0752
