New Van and Blessings


If you follow along here, you already know that we were in desperate need for a new van. Last year, we started a campaign to try to raise some money to purchase a van that we could use everyday in Mexico City. We were overwhelmed by our friends as they poured on the support of our family. So when we returned from the USA in early December, we started the hunt for our new ride.

After many “downs” and very little luck, we finally found a van that suited our family’s needs. In fact, it is so much more than we could have asked or even imagined. The van is well taken care of, has all of the service receipts, and everything checks out great. Our lawyer friend who was helping us check it all out was extremely enthusiastic about this van. It is perfect.

We always joke when we rent vehicles that it would be nice to have a radio that told you what was playing. That might not be anything new to you, or you might not even consider it a blessing, but as I pulled away in our new van and put on the radio, I realized that God takes care of little things as I could read the artist and song that was playing on the radio at that time.

God takes care of us, and we have seen it time and time again in this journey on the mission field. As one of my friends told me, “See…it was worth the wait.”
