The Mechanic Projects completed within our missionary work have become possible because of our diverse group of automotive mechanics, as well as helpers with no automotive background. This ministry offers an assortment of skills in the automotive repair industry, both cross the United States and on the mission fields worldwide. Macedonian has a state-of-the-art shop in Acworth, GA with tools, lifts, and various other equipment. With Macedonian being a 501(c)(3) organization we are able to receive gifts such as vehicles, buses, trucks, trailers, etc. Many have taken advantage of this in an effort to help our missionaries. With a total of 63 workers and 40,624 man hours worked, some of our projects have included traveling to Costa Rica, Honduras, and Brazil along with major engine work, replacing fuel tanks, fuel filters, braking systems and other serving works. Other works include repairs on interstate missionary vehicles, over 100 hours a month working on missionary and church vehicles in shop, and average of about two or three calls per week from missionaries all over the country who need guidance in auto repairs.
