I have a special, and somewhat urgent request.
In order to continue the work that I am doing here in Angola, as well as become a greater help to our team, my supporting church and I have prayerfully begun the process of fund-raising to buy a vehicle. If you are able to contribute to this process financially and/or through prayers, it will be a HUGE blessing to me and to others whom the vehicle will help here.
Shortly after I arrived here, I was blessed with an old vehicle from some missionaries who were leaving the country. It has been a blessing, though not able to withstand some of the rougher roads we have to traverse here. But after 22 years in Africa, this car is done with handling the rough roads, has spent most of the last few months needing constant repairs, and the time has come to sell it and raise funds to buy a new vehicle.
Out of God’s family, a generous heart felt led to agree to match all donations made toward a vehicle, dollar for dollar, up to half the total cost. This overwhelms me and I can’t do anything but praise God for His provision and the giving hearts of His children! This daunting task has already been made easier for me by God proving, yet again, that nothing is too small for Him to care about or too big for Him to accomplish. This matching offer stands until the end of the year. So if you are able to give towards this need, please do so by December so that we are able to take advantage of this generosity.
Thanks to the thoughtful and challenging questions brought by my support team and supporting church, we have thoughtfully considered many of the questions which arise with this decision. I have attached an information packet compiled by my supporting church, and which contains our research, as well as answers to questions many of you may have. After much prayerful consideration as to the type of vehicle required in this environment and my specific ministry, my church and I have decided on a Toyota Land Cruiser.

Our total goal is: $75,000
Know I do not ask this lightly, high costs are simply a reality of life here. It is very difficult for me to ask this much of you, my wonderful supporters and family. However, it is also a reality that I need a vehicle to work most efficiently here, and I know that nothing is too big for our God.
