4 Wheels & an Engine
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!
