Engine Swaps and Building Blocks

Well what can we say? Jesus is Lord and we can do all that things through Christ who strengthens us! Praise the Lord! The white bus is almost ready for full time duty. We were able to find a used engine and swapped it out this week. We also replaced the transmission and other items. It has been a battle. We put it back on the road Thursday but it went down again. Water leak and the alternator belt broke. All is well though. We went back through and inspected everything and found that the transmission bracket was missing a bolt. Praise the Lord, even though we had some down time we found that item before it became a major problem. We hope to get it back this afternoon and have it back on the road in the morning.
Two hundred block arrived this week and we were able to start building on the battery room. We are still one hundred block short but we are believing God for the rest of the block to complete the project. This room will house our batteries and inverters as we go on alternate power. Our power cost has risen another five cents this month taking the cost now to thirty five cents a kilowatt hour. This week we will order the wind turbines and have them shipped in here to Majuro. We are starting off with wind because it charges day and night and this is the windy time of the year. Over time we will add solar panels to round out our energy needs. This will save money that we can pour back into the ministry and reaching the lost.
Also this week we received another computer for our ministry. Praise the Lord! We are also in need of Bible software. One of the losses on my computer was my bible study material.
Because of the repairs to the buses and computer issues this has tapped into our operational funds. We are believing God for $6,000 to cover the cost of repairs to the buses along with rental fees during this down time. Please agree with us in prayer for these needs. If you would like to help out with the financial need or would like to help us with solar panels, please drop us an email at rikakisteve@gmail.com or clarkmvimi@ntamar.net
We are in need of teaching and preaching CDs or DVDs. Even better would be MP3s on a flash drive. If you know of any ministries that provide that kind of resources on a flash drive please email. Remember do not throw away that teaching, if you are finished with it send it to us! Thank you as always for your continued faithful prayer and support. Be blessed in all that you do and may you prosper even as your soul prospers.

Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard.
