God has been doing so much lately that we wanted to take a moment and send a special update. Our next prayer letter isn’t due until June but the blessing of this email system is to keep you up to date on special things along the way and we want to share these blessings!
For the past seven months we have been working toward raising money for our Bolivia vehicle project. We have shared with many of you the need for four-wheel drive on those dangerous roads. We have also shared about the expense involved in purchasing vehicles because of the countries tax and shipping laws. Well, we have been praying for God to provide a safe, trust worthy, four-wheel drive vehicle along with the money to pay for it and He has done that!
