32 SEAT BUS
Every year, we host over 200 volunteers, interns and trip takers at our mission base in Choma. When these individuals arrive into Lusaka or Livingstone (the closest two airports in Zambia, but still a few hours away from our base), we need a reliable way to transport large groups of people at the same time. Also, during every Immersion Trip, moving an Immersion Team around for ministry outreach requires a large bus to avoid delays and multiple trips.
A van serves as the kid brother to the big bus. This will allow us to move around smaller teams when we don’t need the 32-seater. This will help us save on gas and will allow us to accommodate smaller groups
Our on-ground staff is visiting people, churches, and communities every single day. In addition, various trips to Livingstone or Lusaka are required for legal purposes, resourcing, visas, etc. Owning a few SUVs will allow our staff to not be reliant on public transportation or walking.
A flatbed truck will help us move materials around safely and quickly. This truck will serve as a tremendous help with infrastructure projects at rural churches.
Hosting so many people/teams comes with A LOT of baggage. In years past, we have found ourselves constantly renting trailers to haul luggage from place to place. A trailer is a good investment that will help us avoid rental fees.
