Church Van!

Many of you know we have had the need for a new truck or church van for quite some time. Rickson really has wanted to get a nice van for picking up people for services, but that just didn't look like a possibility for anytime soon due to current finances. We've had a truck/van account for some time that we have added to every month but we expected something like this to cost so much we would be saving for several years still. Well, the Lord had an unexpected surprise for us!!! Rickson noticed a beautiful Ford 15-passenger van in town with a 'For Sale' sign on it so he contacted the owner and found they were willing to sell it to us for only $3500! After having several mechanics check it out, test driving it, and praying about it, Rickson came home this afternoon with a new van! It is a 2003 Ford with only 18,000 miles and we are so thankful for the Lord's provision!

That's wonderful, Susan! I know the van will be a blessing to y'all in meeting the transportation needs of the ministry. God is SO GOOD to provide for our needs before we even ask! :)
