We'll cut to the chase...we NEED a car! We need a car for our personal family needs and to be more effective in our ministry. We have been looking and are looking for a used, 4-door, SUV/Jeep/truck type vehicle that would be durable enough for the jungle, that would fit our family needs, and be useful for the ministry.
Buying a car in Ecuador isn't ANYTHING like buying a car in the U.S. Cars here are EXPENSIVE...almost all cars are imported which makes them more expensive. Vehicles typically cost AT LEAST double of what they cost in the States...doesn't matter used or new.
We ask that you would prayerfully consider giving to this specific need, and sharing this need with others. We have about $4,500 raised for a vehicle...which you may be thinking "isn't that enough??" Remember...this is a 3rd world country and vehicles are EXPENSIVE. Honestly, we need about $8-$10,000 for the type of vehicle described above.
If you are interested in giving toward a vehicle you can make a taxable donation through our partner organization EXTREME RESPONSE. If you would please write our account number 400.345 in the memo portion and note CAR/vehicle as well. If you feel so inclined, you can also EMAIL US noting that your donation is to go toward a vehicle.
We thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and consider making a donation.
