We have some incredible news to share with you today about an opportunity to upgrade our bus! Our current bus was built in 1996: the same year that we ventured into full-time ministry. The bus has carried us across the country safely for 800,000 miles over the past 13 years, but it’s time for this bus to be replaced.
We have been seeking God’s face for the last few years about this specific need. Over the last few days, we were made aware of a used bus for sale that’s in very good condition. At the same time, God moved in the hearts of some dear friends to donate $100,000 and $10,000 toward the purchase of this bus! Since then, we have received an additional $43,000 in pledges toward the new bus. That leaves us just over $39,000 away from paying for the bus in cash!
The bus we are aiming to purchase is in much better condition than any bus we’ve seen in our price range for quite some time. It was manufactured in 2004. The engine was completely rebuilt in the last 45,000 miles, and the transmission was rebuilt less than two years ago. This “newer” bus has just been reduced from $224,000 to $180,000 in order to sell quickly. For a bus of this age, it’s in great shape, and it will serve our needs very well.
Including taxes and fees, the total purchase price will be $192,870. We have placed earnest money down, and we hope to purchase the bus very soon. Would you join us in praying that God will continue to move in the hearts of His people to cover the remaining $39,000 for this bus? Would you also consider sharing a one-time gift toward this purchase? If God is leading you to help us with this need, you can either click on the DONATE button at the top of the page, or you can send a check to the address below. We will reach out to you with an update very soon. We are so grateful for your prayers, and for your faithful support as we strive to reach more people for His kingdom!
