A Van for Cofradia!!
For about a year now we've been looking to get a people mover. Our first choice was a 25-30 passenger school bus, but we found out we couldn't legalize them in Mexico. So, we chose to look for a 15 passenger van. Last Thursday, after looking for about 3 or 4 weeks, Gena and I went to Portland to look at a van and it turns out to be something that I believe will be a great asset to our ministry. I'm really excited because we have a youth retreat coming up next month as soon as we arrive in Cofradia. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to be able to take a bunch of youth to the retreat. Thank you to all of you who have given so generously towards this purchase. We are leaving for Mexico on Wednesday and we'll drive it down along with our own vehicle as well. Costs of gas, tolls, and the legalization I'm thinking will end up being nearly $2,000. Please pray for a safe trip and no mechanical problems.
