What’s the worst job you can imagine?
- The graveyard shift… at a graveyard?
- Cleaning the kennel at the veterinarian?
- Working in a toll booth?
What about hauling loads of charcoal in the hot, African sun each day? Or traveling for miles to cut down and carry loads of firewood to the market each day?
Suddenly your worst job ever doesn’t sound so bad, does it?
This is real life for African men every day. Charcoal and firewood transportation are crucial in Africa. These resources are the primary sources of cooking energy for more than 80% of the houses in sub-Saharan Africa. Since most of these areas are rural, men have to carry the charcoal or firewood many miles to get them to their houses.
Why should this be important to you? You can help us make this painful job easier for the men in our Kinship Churches.
Our pastors in Africa are working to reach out to the men in the communities they serve. One way they do this is by helping them with their work. Pastor Martin at that Manasseh Kinship Project in Kenya and some of our other pastors in the region are trying to raise money to buy motorcycles for their Kinship Churches. These motorcycles will be available for the men in the Kinship Churches to use to do jobs, like charcoal and firewood transportation, more quickly and easily.
You can help us make this painful job more enjoyable and at the same time minister to the men in our Kinship Churches! Donate now!
