“And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?”
– Romans 10:14-15 –
As workers are trained and sent into the field, lack of a transportation infrastructure can pose challenges in undeveloped regions. Public transportation is often absent. Traveling by foot is time consuming and limiting. Compelled personnel are often capable of serving multiple villages within a people group as we are able to provide them the means to travel.
For example, a motorcycle enables a native missionary to cover several villages in a day. And in a week allows him to visit the several village congregations he oversees. A bicycle enables literacy workers to travel from village to village to conduct literacy classes for the illiterate in remote villages.
