Urgent Needs Please Read!
We wanted to present you an urgent need we have here in the islands. The first one is urgent and we wanted to make you aware of it. As many of you know we have three buses that we use here in the ministry. Two of them we have had on the road for over six years now. That is well beyond what is normal for a vehicle here in the islands. We have replaced floors and the engine in one of our buses. A couple of weeks ago we let you know about the trouble with our diesel bus. We have since found out that the block is blown. Now that bus is out of commision.
Our oldest bus is still working but only in a limited capacity, due to some issues with cooling. So at this time we are runniing on one bus. This bus is now doing triple duty transporting 80 students to class, supporting CTC and our other ministries here on the island. Our buses are an integral part of our ministry here. We use them six days a week. These are not luxury items or just used once or twice a week. Buses are the backbone of our ministry. We are currently looking for a rebuilt engine maybe our of Australia or Fiji but we have not found one at this time!
With that said we need your help. Number one, we need you to pray and agree with us for new buses. Number two, spread the word to others to hook up with us. Number three, if you feel led to help us please contact us. We know that God is more than enough and where there is vision there is provision!
The second thing we need is two replacement wind generators to help offset power costs here. Electricity is now at .41 cents a kilowatt hour. Just at minimal usage that can be up to 600 dollars a month. The reason we are presenting this need is because of some damage done during a major storm over a month ago. The money that we save on electricity costs goes into our outreaches throughout the islands! Here is a link to the type of wind generator that we need, http://www.amazon.com/Windmax-HY1000-5-24-Volt-Residential-Generator/dp/B001JBFJZK/ref=sr_1_3?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1320013299&sr=1-3
Once again, thank you for your faithful prayers and support.
Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Richard, Stephen, Terina and Kanani
