Circuit Riding Time

Hey there! Someone says why are we looking at this picture for, well I will tell you. This is a picture of Travis's scooter. The one he uses to get around and go to work. We have been praying about ways of conserving and taking care of what God has given us. Gas prices here have now reached $6.65 a gallon and diesel is at about the same price. We are expecting to reach 7 possibly 8 dollars a gallon soon. Our white van runs gas and is the most expensive to keep on the road at this time. However we do believe that a diesel van is coming that will run on coconut oil, but until that time we need to steward our operational funds.
So with that said we are looking for a scooter for me! Yep, that's right for me. We are looking now at a used scooter here with enough power for me to get around. Travis runs all week on about 3 gallons of gas. What we are looking at doing is teaching three days on one end of the island and three days on the other using the scooter to get there. That way we can use God's funds wisely. So now the days of the circuit riding preacher are back. Please agree with us for a scooter that will meet the need. Travis's is a little light at 50cc for me, I need something a little bigger. Be blessed in all that you do and have a great day. May you prosper even as your soul prospers.

Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Richard and Catie
