Please Help – Our Truck is on its Last Legs!

UPDATE!  As of today, we have received $23,964 in donations for the truck fund. THANK YOU so much to all of you who donated so far! We are truly humbled by your generosity and kindness!

We have determined that we need to purchase a truck with 4-wheel drive so that we can travel the muddy dirt roads that access remote village areas, and we also need a double cab with a topper on the back with benches for more capacity to move things and people. This type of truck will cost 920,000 baht, almost exactly $27,000 USD. We believe that we can meet our new goal of $27,000 by the end of this month. If you haven’t donated yet, please consider donating now. WE ARE SO CLOSE TO OUR GOAL! All donations are tax-deductible.

THE TRUCK: This 20 year old faithful truck has been used as an ambulance, a refuge from rain while at church camps or outreach events, a “home” to hymn-singing travelers, a dining car, a sleeping car, as well as a very frequent people transport vehicle. It has been pulled out of the mud and flood waters, used to rescue stranded team members (as well as breaking down and stranding others – haha). But we need a new one!

THE HISTORY: It has been driven to take people to hospitals in many provinces, has been to Thailand’s highest mountain tops, and has had unpleasant contact with various cars, motorbikes, trees, walls, ditches, and telephone poles. Its windshield spontaneously shattered once and it has often had a very substantial amount of water flood the driver’s side floor mat. At one time, when one of its side mirrors was sideswiped by a speeding semi truck, no one was hurt!

THE NEED: It’s possible that our stories of this truck could go on forever, but we’ve come to realize that this truck cannot! We’ve towed it and fixed it. We’ve rebuilt the engine and oiled it. We’ve prayed for it to last year after year. But it’s finally time to say goodbye to this truck. Please help us as we gather funds for a more reliable vehicle! Donate today.

OUR FUNDRAISING PLAN: Thanks to the kindness and generosity of many people, we are almost to our $27,000 goal. Only a little bit more to go! Please join us in raising these funds. Click here to learn more.
