If God lays it on your heart, we would welcome you to consider providing for some of the following tools. The missionaries of Indian Evangelical Team require basic tools to go to the unreached, communicate the Gospel in culturally intelligent terms, and to disciple those who decide to follow Jesus Christ. Some of these tools, like the Bible, have to be replenished every month as new believers join the churches. Some, like the bicycles, will last seven years of rough use—although we need hundreds of such tools every year to replace the dying ones or to equip the new trained graduates being sent to new fields every year. These tools range from gospel literature to jeeps.
More than 90% of the people in South East Asia have no access to a Bible or a New Testament. A chance to read the Bible on their own is a gift that every native missionary wants to give the people they minister among. You can supply tools for this gift to a missionary for the believers he disciples.

A jeep will travel to at least 1200 villages every year, covering approximately 100,000 miles through jungles, mountains, valleys, fields and roads of wildly varying quality! On occasion the jeep is used as a make shift ambulance when there has been an attack on the evangelists. The same jeep may be used to carry relief supplies during a natural disaster. It is a critical tool, one that provides the greatest practical use with eternal results. It will last for anywhere from 7-9 years. We will send you the picture of the purchased vehicle and a report from the missionary leader it will be assigned to.

This is also an extremely useful tool to conduct Bible studies and prayer meetings in the evening, the time when villagers gather after the days work in the field or hunting.
