June 6, 2017 - Weekly Livelihood Update
Dear <<First Name>>,
Pastor Elijah travels each Sunday to a rural area to serve as pastor of the Faith Missionary Baptist Church, where he has ministered for several years. As this community lacks the means to provide a salary, he earns his living by driving a putput. Like many of the other drivers, he has been renting a unit for several years. Since January of 2016, the daily income has been much higher by having his own unit. We hear stories of how he uses the putput to share his testimony and the gospel message to passengers. He's a talented musician and the riders sometimes get a song too, no extra charge.
He is very proud of his unit and has equipped it with a special horn, powered by a bicycle pump. No doubt the most unique putput in Palompon, Leyte.

“The “Abe Braun” Bicycle Taxi has greatly impacted my family in many ways. I have been renting and driving Putput since 2007. It is a blessing to have “Abe Braun” Bicycle Taxi entrusted to us. It has become our source of income every day. It helps provide our daily needs and especially the school needs for my children. Through it, we can also save and even support our ministry and for the gasoline going to and from in Brgy. Tambis, Palompon, Leyte, where I minister as a Pastor.
We are very grateful to our sponsor and to Seeds of Dignity Ministries as a channel for God's provision of this blessing.
Driving experience is 10 years.
