The Bus Project


Mullett Family

As a few of you may know, a fund has been started for a replacement vehicle for the Mullett family to use in their From Pain to Purpose ministry focus, we wanted to share some details about this project.


Duane and Cindy Mullett and their four daughters travel across the US and Canada giving singing and speaking events in prisons and churches. With the tragedies they have faced personally, their purpose in their traveling ministry is to walk alongside hurting people, spreading hope and equipping them in becoming overcomers.


For the last several years, the Mullett family has averaged over seven months each year on the road. Currently, they are using a 2002 Dutch Star motorhome for these travels, however, as their family has grown, and the motorhome has continued to put on miles, it has caused both the motorhome to become less dependable and the
accommodations to become less suitable for their needs.

The Pain to Purpose committee has given approval to pursue a vehicle
more suitable for travel, and Gospel Express Ministries has set up a vehicle fund to replace the current motorhome. The plans are to purchase a 45 foot diesel charter bus to convert into living quarters for the family.







The estimated cost for the purchase of the bus chassis and renovations is approximately $160,000.



$40,000 bus chassis

$93,000 interior labor & materials

$8,000 generator

$8,000 heating & hot water system

$6,000 air conditioners

$5,000 appliances


 Reaching People With Skin On 

Thunder cracked and lightning flashed but the father, putting his young son to bed assured him that God was
with him. The young lad hollered back to his father “But I need someone with skin on!”

Vehicles!!! We would rather be raising proceeds for Bibles and Bible Study Courses but transportation is what makes the face to face and heart to heart ministry a reality. 

The Mullett family like so many families, have experienced heartbreak, fears, and grief.

However, God’s amazing grace and faith in Christ have enabled the Mullett family to be-come broken bread and spiritual nourishment for souls in need of hope and encouragement.

A more dependable vehicle with a “family friendly interior” would be a great blessing to the Mullett family and it would enhance their ministry focus. We believe God will provide again as we have seen Him do over the past 32 years of ministry.

“And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:19
