"40 thousand is just too much."
For almost two years now, we've been having problems with our truck. It started small - breaking down here and there. When we replaced the engine during our trip in 2021, we had hoped the truck had a few more years left.
Instead, it gave way a few months later and the team has resorted to renting vehicles and using public transportation. And as you can imagine, that adds up quickly.
We started a fundraiser months ago, shooting to raise 40k to purchase a used truck. After a few weeks, we had raised a little over half the amount and so we started discussing buying an older vehicle.
But in Zambia, where trucks don't last long, it didn't seem worth spending that much on a truck that would die within a few years. So we set the fundraiser on the back burner and kept praying.
As Giving Tuesday and Christmas began to creep up, we began discussing reintroducing the fundraiser. When we did, you guys amazed us with your generosity again. It was a reminder of God's goodness.
And then a generous donor blew us away with a last donation that pushed us over our goal. Aaron's response captures the team's reaction perfectly.
Wow!! What a mighty God we serve. From everlasting to everlasting, He never stops doing wonders!! Thank you Lord and may He bless everyone who has given towards this.
Whether your donation was large or small, we are enormously grateful for your support. Every dollar pushed us closer to the new truck and we can't wait to finally be able to travel between the school and farm without the expense of public transport.
So thank you! We could not have raised this much without your unwavering support. It reminds us what a great God we all serve.
