God's Grease Monkeys
This is a ministry dedicated to helping missionaries with their car woes. A majority of missionaries do not know how to fix their own cars and are many times at the mercy of unscrupulous local "mechanics." God's Grease Monkeys exists to provide quality, honest, dependable mechanical service at no charge to the mission community. God's Grease Monkeys' home base is at our house in Balama, Mozambique. The photos above represent a long-time dream of building our own garage in order to facilitate this ministry. Construction where we live is a very long process, but our dear friend and fellow missionary, Jon Beutler from Wycliffe Bible Translators, came to help us. Along with himself, he brought his vast experiential knowledge of construction as well as a cement mixing machine.
Even when we're in South Africa, Brad's able to use his skills to bless others. Here he is working on one of the cars at a friend's farm where we stayed for over a month while we were working on the import of our van.
