We need your help urgently!

 

The number of FYI Kids we serve has now exceeded our capacity to transport them.  What a GREAT problem to have!  Until recently, we had our own 15 passenger van (a donated 1992 Dodge) and even though it needed a number of repairs, it served us well. However, after 2 transmissions (the 2nd one having recently gone out) it is no longer good stewardship to continue repairs and up-grades.

We are thankful to Mt. Hope Church for providing their van to us but we are now one short. This means we are now having to leave some children waiting until we can return for them (not an ideal situation in bad weather).  Still there are times when the van provided is in use by their own church which leads to our having to cancel our morning service,tutoring and Bible Study since it is not possible to  transport 30 plus children without a van.

We are asking that you prayerfully consider helping us purchase a 15 passenger van similar to the Ford Transit pictured below.  We chose this style because of the seating arrangement which features a middle isle.  (We have added the lettering to the picture.)

                                                                                            

While new transits can be as much as $45,000, OUR GOAL is $30,000 which we believe will enable us to purchase a low mileage van in excellent mechanical condition.

Please know that a gift of any amount will be greatly appreciated and that 100 percent of your designated contribution for this purpose will go directly to the purchase price of our van. Any amount over the actual cost of putting it into service will be designated to future needs directly related to its use.

God bless,
Pastor Brent and Victoria
