The Distance Challenge

One of the major challenges that we face is that people live so spread out. The closest village to our church is a 15 minute car ride (or at least 30 minute horse and buggy trip). Since the old colony Mennonites do not drive cars they need to come by horse and buggy. To have them attend church we need to pick them up – which for some families is a 1½ hour drive one way. Eventually the plan is for families to move away from the villages and live on our land, but that is the long term plan.
