Travel is the movement of people between distant geographical locations. Travel can be done by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, bus, airplane, ship or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one-way or round trip. Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements, as in the case of tourism. 

Reasons for travelling include recreation, holidays, rejuvenation, tourism or vacationing, research travel, the gathering of information, visiting people, volunteer travel for charity, migration to begin life somewhere else, religious pilgrimages and mission trips, business travel, trade, commuting, obtaining health care, waging or fleeing war, for the enjoyment of travelling, or other reasons. Travellers may use human-powered transport, such as walking or bicycling or vehicles, such as public transport, automobiles, trains, ferries, boats, cruise ships and airplanes.

Tourism is travel for pleasure or business,  the theory and practice of touring, the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists, and the business of operating tours. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally, in terms which go "beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only", as people "travelling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure and not less than 24 hours, business and other purposes.

Land transport covers all land-based transportation systems that provide for the movement of people, goods and services. Land transport plays a vital role in linking communities to each other. Land transport is a key factor in urban planning. It consists of 2 kinds, rail and road.

We Work On Roads

A road is an identifiable travel route, usually surfaced with gravel, asphalt or concrete, and supporting land passage by foot or several vehicles.

The most common road vehicle in the developed world is the automobile, a wheeled passenger vehicle that carries its own motor. As of 2002, there were 591 million automobiles worldwide. Other users of roads include motorcars, motorcycles, buses, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians, and special provisions are sometimes made for each of these. For example, the use of bus lanes gives priority to public transport, and cycle lanes provide particular road areas for bicycles to use.

Motorcars offer high flexibility but are deemed with high energy and area use and the primary source of noise and air pollution in cities; buses allow for more efficient travel at the cost of reduced flexibility. Road transport by truck is often the initial and final stage of freight transport.

We love reaching people with the love of God and love for one another, including all of Creation!

Our roles

Traditionally when one thinks of chaplains, it is in the context of the Christian faith, but today it is not unusual for a chaplain to be associated with other religious and spiritual traditions.
