Thank you so much to everyone who has been praying about our vehicle need and helping us as we are raising funds. We wanted to share with you a brief update on how the fundraising is going and our goals for a new ministry vehicle.
So far we have been able to raise almost $4,000 towards a vehicle to travel to schools and camps in. We also have another $3,000 that has been pledged towards the project. I met with a local car dealership this week to help figure out what type of vehicle we really need. The main criteria being it will last a long time, fuel efficient, space for hauling students to church and camp, and will be able to get me home if I get caught in bad winter weather while visiting schools. Based on that we are looking at some smaller SUV/Crossovers that might work. Depending on what’s available when our fundraising is through we are needing to raise somewhere between $10,000-$14,000 towards the purchase.
So it looks like based on what funds we have in hand that we need to raise between $7,000-$10,000 more. There are some cheaper options out there, but after much prayer we feel the best way to be stewards of the money God is providing is to get something that will last many years so that we won’t be in this same position in just a couple more years.
So how can you help? As always keep praying that God will provide for this need. We are really praying and asking God to provide something towards the beginning of the upcoming semester before winter weather arrives. Next, would you prayerfully consider partnering with us financially to help us get this ministry vehicle? If so you can click on the link on the right of this post to go to our ministry giving page. Or maybe you or your business have an extra vehicle you would just like to donate?
Thank you so much for praying with us!
