“Rickshaw Gospel”

In the Philippines, they’re called tricycle drivers, ubiquitous by the hundreds in many places, notorious for their peculiar driving habits, their loud air-polluting machines, and for causing chaotic traffic conditions.

But for Pastor Expedito P. Macarine, a tricycle or “rickshaw,” a motorcycle with a sidecar for passengers, means survival of his family and of his church. Christianity Today has a short feature on this man of God serving His people in an unimaginably impoverished garbage dump area. See also the accompanying photo essay.

I want to support this gentleman as well.  Can we get a contact e-mail or something?

I saw the article about Pastor Macarine in WORLD magazine and was struck by it.  I was wanting to send some money to his ministry but don’t know how.  Do you have any suggestions on how to get some money to him?
