Who Are We?

It all started in September 1995 when Dr Raymond Lombard from Cape Town was moved by the Holy Spirit to initiate a project that would ultimately reach every home, tribe, clan, family, and village throughout Africa with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

On the 5th of September 1995, at 5am in the morning during his prayer time, Raymond experienced a touch of God on his life concerning a special calling into the Mission Field (1 Cor 16:9). This resulted in the formation of Wheels for God’s Word (WGW). Today, this is a mission organisation that is doing work in 38 countries on the African continent, namely: 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, Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Cote D’Ivoire, Senegal, Mali, Egypt, Gambia, Liberia, Niger, and Rwanda.

Since the formation of this organisation, Raymond has trained over 22 000 preachers and Church leaders in Africa in more than 60 Church denominations. Through this ministry, more than 4 000 bicycles and many motorcycles have also been given to pastors and evangelists, which have helped spread the Gospel 10-12 times faster. These pastors and evangelists have been trained using the Heart of Man charts. Over 20 600 Heart of Man large charts, 65 000 Heart of Man booklets, 5 000 pocket size Heart of Man charts, and thousands of Bibles have been distributed in these countries. Wherever a bicycle was released to a preacher of the gospel, a “Heart of Man” chart and accompanying booklet was distributed as well. In Africa a bicycle is called a ”rural Mercedes”.

As the Director of Wheels for God’s Word, Raymond has been serving the Church in Africa in Missions for 25 years.

This Missions Ministry started in the Democratic Republic of Congo in North Kivu (Eastern Congo), in the Ituri rainforest. 1 420 Pygmy village churches were planted over many years. The result was that thousands of new village churches came into existence, and tens of thousands of souls were added to the kingdom of God.
