A couple months ago, it was decided that it would be helpful for each of the church planters in the state of Odisha to have a bicycle for transportation. The brethren from the state of Tamil Nadu decided to take on this project and are working to raise money to buy a bicycle for each of the church planters in the state of Odisha. They had an idea to sell coconuts and other vegetables that are grown on the grounds at the orphanage. (see pictures)
So far the church in Tamil Nadu has raised enough money to buy one bicycle for Lakati Sipka and they have raised INR 2000 ($40 American Dollars) to go towards the next bike. They have raised this money through auctions of coconuts and drumsticks (a vegetable of India).
