4 Wheels & an Engine

I know. I know. These pictures are funny. (And in the US and quite a few other countries, probably illegal. It's kind of hard to strap children into their required car seats on a motorcycle.)

So, just how many people can you fit on a motorcycle? When they are little...you can fit quite a few. This was actually the 1st time that we drove around like this.  And we don't plan on doing it often.  (Anything above second gear starts to feel a little too exciting.)

For over two years now, we have been praying that we would be able to purchase a  vehicle (preferably one with four wheels). Even a lemon that looks ready for the junkyard is expensive here---vehicles just don't go down in value like they do in the US. So, buying something ugly and reliable is still a major expense.

 After the incident with Leif and the bead...which you can read about here...  We started to pray in earnest...as in case of emergency we only have a motorcycle (which Brooke doesn't drive) or we have to rely on public transportation(which isn't all that reliable).

Someone gave us about 1/2 the amount that we need...and we know that God can provide the rest.  Please be praying with us for this need!
