Through a calling from the Lord on 5 September 1995, after receiving a vision from the Lord while praying, Raymond Lombard started a mission movement, which would become known as “Wheels for God’s Word” (W.G.W). It is a mission organisation from his local assembly, working in Africa, doing missionary work in 38 African countries. These countries are: South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Madagascar, Botswana, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, Angola, Democratic Republic Congo, Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Central Africa Republic, Sudan, South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Chad, Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Niger, Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Cote D’Ivoire, Senegal, Mali, Egypt, Gambia, Liberia, and Rwanda.
Bicycles have been given to pastors and evangelists in Africa, which speeds up the process of spreading the Gospel by 10-12 times. In the past 25 years, he has personally trained more than 22 000 preachers and church leaders in Africa, and around the world. They have been equipped and trained in evangelisation and church planting by using the Heart-of Man charts. Four thousand (4 000) ministers and church leaders received bicycles, and many motorbikes were given to church leaders in various countries in Africa – more than 20 600 large Heart-of-Man charts, 65 000 Heart-of-Man booklets (in many different languages), 5 000 pocket size Heart-of-Man charts, as well as many thousands of Bibles.
This Missions Ministry started in the Democratic Republic of Congo in North Kivu (Eastern Congo), in the region of Beni and Butembu, in the Ituri rainforest. One thousand four hundred and twenty (1 420) Pygmy village churches were planted over a period of many years. The result of this missionary initiative (Wheels for God’s Word) was that thousands of new village churches came into existence and tens of thousands of souls were added to the kingdom of God.
