Pastors and their Bicycles
In June 2013, we took these pictures at a pastor training seminar in Kamina, a city in the North Katanga Episcopal Area.
Notice this well worn bike. In the USA it would be on the junk pile. In Africa it is in use.

Pastors heads for lunch with an older bike. A pedal and the chain guard are missing.
A Congolese pastor and his bike – looking good! This is a Kinga 4×4 model bike, the workhorse bike in the Congo and the one provided by Bikes and Bibles. It weighs 50 pounds, all steel, and has a headlight. It also includes a platform for cargo and Mama! The “full” kickstand on the back wheel is best for soft or wet dirt.
