We have been praying and searching for a vehicle to use here in the Philippines. Each time one was found, it was out of our price range or sold already. We had kind of given up on the search thinking God was trying to tell us to just stick close to our neighborhood for our ministries or that He just wanted us to embrace the inconveniences that came with waiting for and riding on the motorella.
We finally just gave it to Him and said, "Ok, God if you want us to have a missionary vehicle, find us one. If not, help us accept your will." Of course, when you finally let go and let God, He can do some amazing things like send someone right to your gate with the perfect vehicle for you to purchase!
Yep, last week a neighbor who was selling a minivan showed up to ask if we were looking to buy a vehicle to use during our time here. "What? Really?" After seeing the Mexico seat covers, we knew that this was our new "Mission Machine" since Mexico is where we fell in love with missions.
After having our mechanic friend check it out, we made an offer of what we had been able to raise for a vehicle which was a lot less than they were asking. And of course, since God had chosen it for us, they accepted our offer, and we are now the proud owners of the Scooby van!
|It's bigger than it looks! Not really! LOL! |
But we all fit and have room for extras!(Yes, that is the flat tire we woke to on the first morning.
Mission life gotta LOVE it!)
|The best part is that our driver fits (well sort of)...|
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO LISTENED TO GOD'S CALL TO HELP US PURCHASE THIS AWESOME VAN! WE HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR YOU!
