Time for a New Bus
Here is a few pictures of an essential tool that we use here in the ministry. It is our bus. This bus has been used to transport CTC, visiting ministers, vacation bible school kids, and many other ministry events. It has certainly been an amazing blessing. This bus was purchased in 2003 when Dr Lew and Mariesa Davis was here. For six years she has been on the road supporting the ministry.
Now rust is beginning to take her toll. She has had body repairs and engine repairs have become the norm. A couple days ago Shawn was taking students home. She heard a loud noise and then the oil light came on. She put oil in it and got the bus back to the compound. When I came home I opened up the engine compartment to find three head bolts stripped and one missing. Now we have found out that the threads on the block will have to be rethreaded. As I write this we are searching for new bolts and a tap/die set to make the repairs.
The bottom line is, it is time for a new bus. Please agree with us in prayer for a new bus. If the Holy Spirit speaks to you about helping in this area, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will post the cost of the new bus on the BLOG at a later date. No worries, God will provide, we continue to build the kingdom. Thank you so much for all of your faithful prayers and support!
Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard
