OUR CIRCUIT RIDING PROFESSOR URGENTLY NEEDS NEW BIKE:
Evangelist Alberto Pessute travelled 4,500 miles (7500 km) as a circuit rider teacher on his 50 cc motorbike this year in order to teach 3 Bible Schools (100+ students) and start the 2 churches in Namuno county. He just called to ask for emergency help, as his motor bike “bit the dust” about 9 miles (15Km) out in the bush as he was coming back from teaching at one of our bush churches today. We knew the bike was near it’s limit, but had hopes that it would last through December when the Bible School year was over and the 2 Namuno churches were able to be independent of his teachings.
