More bikes we bought

We gave bikes to Ishmael, Malvin & Shame. They had bikes that were in REALLY bad shape and constantly broken down. They need/use their bikes everyday for their transport and it is a real problem. These are the guys we play squash with in the mornings. We told them we had something for them and would bring it over to their place later in the day. When we got there I handed them each a bike lock and told them that this was for their bikes. They said, Oh, thanks! (I think they thought I was crazy because no one would want to steal their bikes anyway!) Then I told them to come outside and say hi to Elder Bullock. He was waiting around the corner with the three bikes. They were totally shocked. They kept saying, "I don't know what to say". We said, "Just say Thank you". They said that they are not bikes but they are "machines". They are so thrilled with the bikes and as always here, they say that God is being so good to them. Thanks to all who helped "God" help these people. We are glad to be able to be here and help who we can.

We have enough money donated to buy a couple more bikes and are on the look-out for who we should give them to. We are praying for some inspiration about it so we might know who needs God's help.

Thanks so much everyone!!
Love, The Bullocks
